8-3 Bridging cultures in an academic environment: Sojourners meet interculturalists As the world is becoming smaller, university environment is becoming more global and diverse. Tsukuba University is not an exception as one of the mission statements states: “Our university has links with countries and regions all over the world and we aim to become a university with high international reputation and influence by actively promoting world-class education and research activities and collaborative interaction.” However, mere exposure to different cultures is not enough to develop intercultural skills as intercultural development requires facilitation. This workshop facilitates discussion among the participants to share their own intercultural experiences and to learn about intercultural communication models and theories, which provide hints for successful intercultural communication. This session helps the participants to communicate and act more appropriately and effectively across cultural differences and hopes to help optimize the global academic experience at UT.

8-11 Data 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.

Global startup cities have attracted many advanced entrepreneurs from various regions in the world, while also having successfully developed “indigenous” entrepreneurs with strong mindsets for the global market. Startups created by those entrepreneurs have attracted investments internationally as well as domestically. An increasing number of those startups have grown to have developed cutting-edge technologies, and have successfully penetrated into the global market.

What key factors have existed behind the rise of those cities (or nations) as a global startup city (or nation) in this regard? What should be done to maintain and expand the strengths of those cities (or nations)? How can a global startup city be created in Japan?

In this event, five distinguished speakers will discuss these questions from various angles, while being based on their visions and experiences and referring to Silicon Valley in the U.S., Israel, and Estonia as examples of ever-expanding global startup cities (or nations) as well as to two Japanese cities - City of Fukuoka and City of Tsukuba - that are aiming to be a global startup city.

8-17 Initiatives for the sustainable growth of the wine industry Wine is one of the most widely traded agricultural products. Many regions in the world have engaged in the production of wine. Numerous brands of wine have been circulated in the global market. When various conditions, such as wine-producing technology, environmental factors, effective supply chains, branding strategy, and relevant government policies, come into alignment, fine wine can be produced. This may lead to the growth of the wine industry, which can bring positive impacts on the regional economy. In this regard, there are a growing number of initiatives to boost the wine industry in various regions of Japan. This session is regarding how to promote the sustainable growth of the wine industry.
