Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.

Coaching Knowledge Construction by Biomechanical Analysis - An Example of a Champion of Ballroom Dance


Takuichi NIshimura
AIRC, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology
Brief Bio
Takuichi Nishimura, Ph.D. has background on pattern recognition for user interface or information retrieval and community support system. After graduating from Tokyo University in 1992, he worked as a researcher for three organizations and joined to Artificial Intelligence Research Center, AIST, Japan in 2015. He has been working on employee augmenting technology for care facilities, hospitals, health promotion and education based on knowledge graph and activity data. His interest is both methodologies and technologies to realize employee-driven design to improve the workflow daily, innovate the service model and induce behavior change of all the people related to the care service. He had lead technology research teams for elderly-care for 5 years and also working for a national project ( that develops care robot lead by METI, Japan. He is also researching on knowledge construction methodologies by combining structure knowledge and data which will clarify the tacit knowledge.

In order for care prevention and health promotion, injury prevention and promotion of progress by clear and efficient coaching is important. Therefore we are trying to build coaching knowledgeby combining biomechanical analysis of physical movement and coachers’ knowledge.
