1 Plenary/Chief Sessions 1-1 T-PIRC Symposium: Innovation for global food production towards sustainable future T-PIRC implements building up international R&D collaboration on plant sciences and their industrial applications. T-PIRC calls participation of existing partners to launch multilateral interactions including academic, governmental and private sectors to add new perspectives to current food production system against climate change, food scarcity, loss of natural resources, economic transition,and will present an innovative scheme for overall development towards sustainable future at TGSW in each year.
In 2018, three consecutive Sub-Sessions will be held on: Sub-Session I. Understanding of plant plasticity for stainable food security for future. Sub-Session II. Emergence of new generation of food production system via agriculture x ICT. Sub-Session III: Genes to the fields- cutting edge multidisciplinary technologies for agriculture genomics. The contexts of the two Sub-Sessions will have interactions for implementation under UN SDGs leading to the contribution to the global tasks. An art of top-notch research shall be shared to amalgamate the findings for the science-based mitigation approaches over the global concerns.
The main participating institutions in this year 2018, are the Leading University Partners: Univ. of Bordeaux, National Taiwan Univ., Michigan State Univ., Cornell Univ. and the present Japanese collaborating agencies (RIKEN, JICA, JIRCAS, NARO and AIST as well as universities) with options to voluntary interests from other entities. In addition, some of collaborating agencies at emerging nations are invited together with UN agencies such as FAO. The focus will be on academic research contribution this year. The event will be held at annual basis as a series of scientific information exchange and discussion with expectation of UT institutional support. Upon each meeting, a recommendation shall be provided to aim at a joint achievement as a short term goal accumulating to a long term contribution to the global communities.

2-4 Food Production Logistics and Achieving Traceability for Food Safety in Southeast Asia Southeast Asia is one of the major agricultural hubs of the world, facing challenges to feed the fast-growing population. Unpredictable climate change, land use crisis, soil quality degradation, frequent disasters related to water, labor shortages, and adaptation behavior are the major problems to maintain the optimum yield production. To solve the crisis, a transboundary approaches are required to initiate in the field of agricultural machinery for addressing labor shortages, supply-chain logistics for production system, early warning to reduce damages in disaster and yield prediction for inventory planning to drive the sustainability goal for feeding the major part of 9 billion population by 2050 (SDG 1 &2).

8-11 Dada Science in Collaboration on Language The purpose of this session is to provide opportunities with researchers from various fields to share recent trends of the study of language in industry-academia collaboration. Recent trends are that linguistics and its application fields have been becoming more and more inter-dependent. Thus, the "Trans-Border” or "Interdisciplinary" perspective is necessary among theoretical linguistic fields and its relevant applied linguistics, educational technology, and multilingual education. Specifically, the recent linguistic data for research is "big" and "contextualized". The organizer hopes that the session will stimulate the possibility for uncovering future unexplored areas of research of language. Data Science,
