CEATEC JAPAN Executive Board
The CEATEC JAPAN Executive Board, which comprises three organizations - the Communications and Information Network Association of Japan (CIAJ), whose Chairman is Setsuhiro Shimomura, Chairman of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation; the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), whose Chairman is Ryoji Chubachi, CEO and Vice Chairman of Sony Corporation; and the Computer Software Association of Japan (CSAJ), whose Chairman is Shigefumi Wada, President of OBIC Business Consultants Co., Ltd. - is pleased to announce that CEATEC JAPAN 2012 - the Cutting-edge IT & Electronics Comprehensive Exhibition, will be held over a five-day period from October 2 (Tuesday) to October 6 (Saturday), 2012, in Makuhari Messe (Mihama Ward, Chiba City).
The theme of CEATEC JAPAN 2012 will be "Smart Innovation - Creating a prosperous lifestyle and society". And the message it will broadcast to the world is that technological innovations in IT and electronics are set to make
people's lives and society as a whole smarter and more comfortable.
For this year's CEATEC JAPAN, the stage names have been changed to "Lifestyle & Society Stage" and "Key Technologies Stage". The new stage organization will provide visitors with an overview of the smart lifestyles and smart society created by the seamless integration of technologies. Furthermore, with the spotlight on the three fields of "mobility," "energy" and "medical/health care," special exhibitions and events will be held in cooperation with other industries benefiting from the smarter contributions of IT and electronic technologies so as to make available the latest information.
In the daily conferences that attract a great deal of attention every year, key figures in the IT & electronics industry will give keynote speeches and guest speeches. At these gatherings speakers examine the most topical issues from a variety of perspectives, addressing the world at large. Moreover, from this year CEATEC JAPAN will be held jointly with the 1st IEEE Global Conference on Consumer Electronics 2012 (GCCE 2012), an international conference sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Society of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). This will further stimulate discussions among technology professionals from around the world.
In addition, the CEATEC Awards - launched last year - will be further expanded. Products, technologies and services on display will be examined from scientific and technical perspectives as well as from the point of view of future potential and marketability. Judges will select those that are deemed to represent a high level of innovative excellence and prizes will be awarded.
