This symposium focuses on “communication technology born from such era" and talks about how to respond to this era and what the future society should be, by the people in the industry who are currently active in that field. The panelists will have a wide range of discussions from the standpoint of those who propose the politics, and those who study in the field of academics.

Specifically, one of the issues is what kind of technology is needed based on what kind of technology in the field of "with and after Covid-19", and what kind of digital transformation the technology will bring to the world in the future, so that the speakers will have a lively and vivid discussion on this issue.
