Keynote Speakers for INFORMATION'2018


Hisamatsu Nakano, Professor Emeritus of Hosei University, Japan.

Title: New Antennas Supporting Internet of Things

This talk presents recent progress in antennas for Internet of Things (IoT), and is composed of three sections. Section 1 describes the definition of a metamaterial antenna, comparing to that of a conventional natural antenna. Section 2 discusses metamaterial lines (metalines). The difference in the radiation from four metalines is clarified. Section 3 focusses circularly polarized (CP) metaline antennas and presents the beam-steering for CP radiation. Finally, null formation in the CP radiation is investigated in order to reduce interference signals.

Prof. Hisamatsu Nakano has been with Hosei University since 1973, where he is now a professor emeritus and a special-appointment researcher at the Electromagnetic Wave Engineering Research Institute attached to the graduate school of the same university. He has published over 300 articles in major journals and 12 books/book-chapters, including "Low-profile Natural and Metamaterial Antennas (IEEE Press and Wiley, 2016)." He has held the positions of Visiting Professor at the University of Manitoba, Canada (1986), University of California, Los Angeles, USA (1986-1987), and Swansea University, UK (2016-present). Prof. Nakano received the "H. A. Wheeler Award" (1994), "Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award" (2006), and "Distinguished Achievement Award" (2016), all from IEEE ANTENNAS AND PROPAGATION SOCIETY. He was also the recipient of "the Prize for Science and Technology from Japan's Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology" (2010).

Title:Mathematical Modelling of Political Revolution and Labor Theory of Value

My main research field is to formulate models to express Marx's historical materialism, and its most basic model is 'the Marxian Optimal Growth Model' to show the birth, growth and death of capitalism. This theory created many followers who developed to various type of extensions. Therefore, today, I want to introduce different two types of mathematical modelling to show other two fields of historical materialism. The first one is to show the social conditions where revolution occurs or not occur. This model is based on a game theory of social dilemmas. The second one includes some models which express that labor theory of value is based on a special historical situation after the industrial revolution. Using these two types of mathematical modelling, I will show a potentiality of our research field.
