First CEDEC Keynote Speaker Set
A professor. But unfortunately not Professor Kawashima.
CESA announced its first of three CEDEC keynote speakers right on schedule on Friday. And the honor goes to:
Professor Hiroshi Harashima! Harashima entered Tokyo University in 1964 at the age of 18, and graduated just this past March (he actually retired). He's listed as Honorary Lecturer at the renowned campus.
Harashima's lecture will be held on September 1, the first day of CEDEC. CESA has yet to give an official English translation for the keynote's name, but according to the description at CEDEC information page, the speech will focus on changes in information technology.
Keynote speakers for the 2nd and 3rd will be announced on July 24 and July 31.
