Conference Keynotes

Advanced Technologies for Smarter Cities (Tuesday, November 30)
Norishige Morimoto Director, IBM Research - Tokyo
Norishige Morimoto As population concentrates into urban areas rapidly, they are facing difficult issues in transportation, food, water, healthcare, education and public safety. With recent advances in technology, we are addressing those issues and making the cities smarter, more efficient, and sustainable. In this talk, we introduce some advanced technologies in IBM Research with practical examples.

Internet of Things: Reality and Challenges (Wednesday, December 1)
Patrick Wetterwald President, IPSO Alliance and Manager, Advanced Technologies, Cisco Systems, Inc.
Patrick Wetterwald Smart Grid, Smart Home, Smart Building and Smart connected Cities require smart objects and smart connectivity. As we analyze the different market needs and requirements, we will discuss the role of IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) in the networking of these smart objects. We will offer the vision of an industry alliance on the market adoption of these new technologies. We will focus on the challenges of the IoT: mainly technological but also societal and economical.


Special Workshop on International Trade (Wednesday, December 1)

RFID Activities in APEC Logistics Working Group
Naotaka Ishizawa NYK Line, Japan
Naotaka Ishizawa

Since August 2006, Ishizawa has been working at NYK to establish new global standards for the use of RFID technology in the logistics industry. For example, he has been co-chair of the Transportation & Logistics User Group (in GS1), where he promotes involvement by global members. He also spearheaded the first official global pilot project for RFID between locations in China, Japan, the U.S., and the EU, a project that included air, ocean, and inland transport modes. Thus, he has developed a growing international network of concerned stakeholders.

International logistics is one of the industries that attract the most intense activity in RFID standardization.

The most significant difference between international logistics and other industries is the great number of concerned parties in international logistics. In many industries, a major company can roll out RFID projects based on return-on-investment prospects. But in international logistics, many governmental bodies have their own particular regulations (e.g., border protection, taxation, and quota control), and even the biggest players must follow these regulations. In addition, international logistics uses highly standardized equipment and business processes, and non-standard ones virtually cannot be used.

Therefore, it is critical that these many governmental and standards bodies work together to define coordinated RFID regulations.

Recently, APEC has been working actively for the wider use of RFID in international logistics. It carries out varied RFID pilot programs involving many governmental and standards bodies. APEC also works closely with the EU in these RFID programs. Therefore, the programs are supported by almost all industrialized countries.

In this session, responsible people from users, governmental bodies, and standards bodies will address the purposes and details of APEC projects, and present their visions for the role of RFID in international logistics.
