Shizuoka University of Art and Culture
Hamamatsu, Japan

The Shizuoka University of Art and Culture is a university in Hamamatsu, in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Its mission is to foster the exchange of ideas between the fields of cultural studies and design by having the two combined at one relatively small institution. It is one of Japan's newest universities, established in December 1999 and enrolling its first class in April 2000. SUAC hosted NIME-04, the 4th International Conference on New interfaces for musical expression in June, 2004. The conference featured public invited lectures by synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog and media artist Toshio Iwai.The university has two faculties, the Faculty of Cultural Policy and Management and the Faculty of Design. Within the Faculty of Cultural Policy and Management there are departments of International Culture, Regional Cultural Policy and Management, and Art Management. Within the Faculty of Design there are departments of Industrial Design, Art and Science, and Space and Architecture.The campus's architecture is somewhat unique, dominated by large undulating rooftops, one of which is topped with a roof garden.The university has reciprocal relationships with Hoseo University in South Korea, the Shanghai University of Engineering science in China, the University of Wales in Wales, and the University of Findlay in the United States.

We have been studying the survivals and declines of old-established companies. Particularly, we have revealed that many of time-honored companies have increased their sales by online shop business. However, we think that there are some issues. Old-established companies may have different ways of implementing e-business depending on types and the scales of business. There may be differences between Taiwan and Japan as well. In this report, we explained our theory of old-established companies such as how many of them (of over hundred years of history) globally exist in the first place, and in what types of business there are more of them. And then, we argued about the traditions and the innovations of the old-established companies in Japan and Taiwan, and not only the positive sides of e-business implementation, but also the issues of it. © 2016 IEEE.

2016 8th International Conference on Games and Virtual Worlds for Serious Applications, VS-Games 2016 | Year: 2016

This paper reports some experimental developments of serious games with bio-sensing system and multimedia environments. The key idea is the biofeedback system with a combination of interoception and rehabilitation. In the area of rehabilitation therapy, it has been attracting attention that the client themself recovers better on a voluntary basis by the biofeedback technique. I have been developing some bio-sensing/bio-feedback systems with sketching (physical computing) technique and multimedia art. I will report on some cases which can be seen as the serious games in rehabilitation in cooperating with specialists in the medical field. © 2016 IEEE.

It is business objectives of the enterprise for sustainable management. This study takes a rigorous and reliable quantitative indicator to observe the characteristics of Taiwanese longevity business operations. Moreover, we observe the impact of corporate social responsibility on the company’s share price, ownership structure and employee performance. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.

This report discusses difficulties in mail-order service, as well as the effects of its introduction, in long-established companies. While previous studies only discussed the merits of e-business, it has surfaced with the progress of research that many companies hesitate to actively introduce mail-order service despite the resulting sales growth. They mentioned as the biggest cause of their hesitation that it would require more employees and make operations complicated. For instance, a long-established sake brewer, which offers mail-order service, deals with a flood of online orders with all employees mobilized on such occasions as Father's Day and toward the year end. A long-standing souvenir shop in Hokkaido, which sells local specialties of Hokkaido through mail-order service, is not active in the service as having trouble in handling orders, despite a 20% sales growth from the mail-order service. These issues will also be discussed. © 2015 IEEE.

This 3D optical metrology has become a standard tool in industrial process chains by providing fast and precise full-field 3D data for quality control, rapid manufacturing and reverse engineering applications. In this report, the trend that 3D optical metrology has widely used by the product development is described. Concretely, it is described to inspect shape on the free-form surface, to digitize the design model, to manufacture solid shape without CAD model, to define CAE model from real shape, to make analysis for sheet metal components, and to make real-time strain measurement for tensile tests. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

BIM attracts attention as the technology of improving the productivity of the construction industry. However, there is little 3D parts data provided by product maker. This report is going to help product maker to provide 3D parts data by indicating making method.

It was the mid-1980s when Japan was told that it will become a highly aged society in the years to come. To cope with the rapid change, a research and development project was conducted with government funding, followed by policy implementation of several kinds, in particular the proposal of dwelling design concepts acceptable in people's later years. The paper attempts to report progress, and discusses the remaining issues to be resolved to bring about an inclusive society. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.

Majority of Japanese people now know the term 'Universal Design.' It is not only because of publicizing effort by the local governments and their related organizations, but also schools have taken up universal design (UD) as a concept to be taught. Shizuoka University of Art and Culture has adopted UD as one of its fundamental policies since it was established in 2000, and the authors examined how the students of high schools and of the Shizuoka University of Art and Culture have learned UD. Authors compared the findings with UD education tools for pupils and students, including UD promotion by the local governments and Japanese language textbooks. The examination of the effect upon students' knowledge of UD by these tools and actions suggests correlation between them, and what are sufficient/insufficient as to the contents of UD education. The authors discuss what UD education should be, based on the results. © 2014 The authors and IOS Press.

This is a studio report of student projects at SUAC (Shizuoka University of Art and Culture) in Hamamatsu Japan. SUAC was founded in April 2000, and hosted NIME04. All students in the Faculty of Design, Department of Art and Science are studying computer sound, interaction and media arts. SUAC organized the Media Art Festival (MAF) from 2001 to 2010, and many student's works have been created - live performances, installations and interactive contents - Flash, Web, Game, etc. In this paper, I will report on four recent student projects - two live performances and two sound installations created 2010-2012.
