ISASE 2021

Symposium Information

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to attend ISASE 2021 – the 7th International Symposium on Affective Science and Engineering on March 9 (Tue.), 2021. The main objective of the symposium is to bring together academics, engineers, manufacturers, and government officials to present and exchange knowledge, experience, results, and information related to the broad aspects of methodologies employed in affective science and engineering. Affective engineering is a new propelling technology that can enable us to bridge gaps between humans and systems. The scope of the symposium also covers all fields of advanced technology and science, manufacturing, production as well as design.



Online Symposium

This year’s symposium will be held online, where real-time oral presentation sessions and live discussions will also be taking place.
This symposium is partnered with JSKE 16th Spring Academic Conference; participants registered to ISASE2021 will also be able to listen to keynotes and presentations from JSKE 16th Spring Academic Conference.
We warmly invite you to become a guest at our online symposium and help us promote the newest developments and ideas in our field.
