3D Fair 2006
Lectures, exhibition and presentation

Venue: Akihabara Advanced Knowledge Field
November 10, 2006
" On November 10, 2006 (Fri), "3D Fair 2006" was organized by the 3D Consortium, the 3D Display Research Center, Kwangwoon University (3DRC) and the Institute of Creative Industries and Culture as a joint 3D event between Japan and Korea at Akihabara Advanced Knowledge Field in Tokyo. With participation of more than 300 persons including the staff of organizers, "lectures" and "exhibitions" of the latest 3D display technology and applications were presented, as were "presentations" of twenty 3D contents works which represented Japan and Korea.
Under the theme, "the movements and trends of 3D in Japan and in Korea", Mr. Minoru Taniguchi, Head of Administration of the 3D Consortium, gave a lecture about the current situation of the 3D industry in Japan. He emphasized that cooperation and efforts were required by the participants in order to foster 3D as one of the major industries. Then, professor Eun-Soo KIM of 3DRC from Korea gave a lecture about the current situation of the 3D industry in Korea and the importance of the partnership focusing on the eastern Asia. After that, professor Takashi Kawai, associate professor of Waseda University, introduced a latest example of 3D research from the standpoint of ergonomics. As a representative of guests, Mr. Masahiro Fujita, Deputy Chief of the Secretariat of Intellectual Property Strategy Headquarters of the Cabinet Secretariat, gave words that in terms of the contents business utilizing IT technology, Japan dropped a little behind Korea and we need to focus more on the contents of the 3D industry.
After that, three lecturers presented "Akiba 3D Declaration" and promised that Japan and Korea will exert effort to be the center in Asia of the 3D technology and image culture.

*Akiba 3D Declaration
In order to produce positive emotions for the human beings and to make a contribution to our society by creating new industries and cultures with stereoscopic expressions (3D), we hereby declare the following;

1. "Content-centered"
We promote the "content-centered 3D" concept from this place, Akihabara.
2. Respect for safety
While we understand the need to pay our utmost attention to the safety of 3D, we also need to make the best use of the merits of 3D and pursue the comfortableness.
3. Understanding and utilization of efficiency of 3D
We appreciate the efficiency of 3D correctly. And by utilize the efficiency in adequate applications, we are to accumulate and publish positive evidence.
4. Fostering of human resources
We foster the next-generation creators, engineers and researchers who can lead the 3D industry, and we provide a wide variety of opportunities for searching for new styles of expressions and applications.
5. International alliance
In order to enhance various collaborations including the share and transfer of intellectual properties, we form up worldwide networks, starting from Asian countries.
