As the conference chair of the fifth Asia Color Association Conference, it is my great pleasure to welcome all of our participants to “ACA2019 Nagoya” in Aichi, Japan. This marks the fifth anniversary since the first ACA conference was held in Thailand. That first conference was at Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi in 2013, and it has since been held in Taiwan, China, and Thailand again. Therefore, it is a great honor for Meijo University to provide a venue for the ACA conference for the first time in Japan. We are privileged to present to you, through the theme of “Color Communications”, the new concept of the ACA conference for up to the next five years.
The ACA conference aims to become a focal point of exchange among Asian scientists and designers specializing in color. This is the first time the ACA conference is being held in Japan, making it possible for young researchers from Asian countries to come to an event they would otherwise have difficulty attending. This is especially true with Meijo University, which is located in Nagoya, the third largest urban area in Japan. Nagoya has, of course, achieved significant development in the textile, ceramic and automobile industries. I believe that every participant of the ACA conference is going to enjoy this exciting and traditional city and create new networks with each other during this “Color Communications” conference.
I would like to thank all the contributions and cooperation given by the committee members, especially the Steering Committee and the Program Committee, and also acknowledge the contribution made by sponsoring companies and organizations. I offer my sincerest hope that this conference will prove to be most fruitful to all participants, and that the results of its success will become a valuable asset to be passed on to the future. Thank you for joining us to experience this “Color Communications” conference in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan.
Conference Chair, ACA2019 Nagoya
Chairman, Meijo Educational Foundation WELCOME MESSAGE
Dear colleagues in the field of color science and design,
On behalf of the steering committee of ACA2019 Nagoya, I would like to welcome you all to the fifth Asia Color Association Conference at Meijo University, Nagoya, Japan. This conference is being cosponsored by the Color Science Association of Japan in cooperation with Aichi Prefectural Government, Nagoya Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Meijo University. The theme of this conference is “Color Communications”, and we anticipate seeing more than two hundred delegates from all over the world enjoying it.
This conference is providing a place where scientists and designers specializing in color, especially young researchers and students in Asian countries, can communicate and interact with each other. Therefore, it is hoped that you will expand your knowledge and experience, and will create new networks in your fields.
With this in view, one hundred thirty nine abstracts have been received from eleven countries. This is the largest number ever at an ACA conference, and so the program committee has organized twelve sessions. In addition to these regular presentations, the ACA2019 Nagoya conference will be highlighted by two keynote speeches, nine invited talks, one seminar series, two workshops, and also some exciting exchange programs. I believe that these programs are going to provide a unique opportunity for you to present your research activities and discuss your mutual interests with others for the future advancement of your fields.
I am grateful for the efforts made by the members of the program and the steering committees, and I would like to express my gratitude to all of the authors for contributing their works, to all of the special session organizers for their hard work, and to all of the sponsoring companies and organizations for their cooperation. I sincerely hope that this conference will be highly successful and fruitful to you and that you will fully enjoy the conference, the academic atmosphere at Meijo University, and the exciting city of Nagoya.
General Chair, Steering Committee of ACA2019 Nagoya Greeting of Mitsuo Ikeda, the ACA coordinator
I, as the coordinator of ACA, feel particularly happy to see the 5th ACA conference is held in Japan, one of the most advanced countries in the world in the color science and design. Since ACA was established in 2013, it went to Thailand in 2013, Taiwan in 2014, China in 2016, and Thailand again in 2018, but not to Japan. I hoped for many years the ACA to go to Japan. Now it is realized and we are here. I asked Dr Kawasumi of Meijo University of Japan some years ago if she can invite the ACA to Japan recognizing that it should be a very hard work for her if she once accepts it. And she accepted. On behalf of the ACA board I would like to thank Dr Kawasumi for organizing the conference and for leading the conference to a great success.
The ACA set four mottos at the time of establishment. 1. Economical conferences so that any body, particularly young people can attend, 2. No rigid membership. Any countries, regions, and individuals are welcome to take parts in ACA. 3. The language is English, but no fluent English is required, broken English is ok. And 4, No conference in the year when AIC is held in Asia. The mottos 1 and 3 were already realized as we can see many young scientists and designers are attending in this conference. Thanks to many air companies which nowadays provide people with economical ticket and to hotels for providing with economical rooms to stay that can be searched for through internet. Some young people are afraid to attend at the conference because they have no confidence to communicate in English. But they need not to worry about this. All the attendants are similar on this point and you will get help from others.
There was a heartwarming article on a recent newspaper to report a happening in the 5000 meters track and field world championship. An athlete from a small country, Guinia Bissau in West Africa was running backmost at the last round for the goal and noticed an athlete running in front him was fluttering because of dehydration symptoms. The Guinia Bissau athlete caught up him, lent his shoulder and finished goal together. Audience applauded his action. I am sure that ACA has the same spirit. Attendants coming from advanced countries in the field of color science and design are willing to help those coming from developing countries in the field of color science and design. I am convinced that the 5th ACA conference will be successful and profitable to every body to attend at the conference.
At the last but not the least, I would like to thank Meijo university and the president Mr. Tachibana who invited the 5th ACA to Meijo university and took the responsibility as the conference chair. Also acknowledge the Color Science Association of Japan for becoming the cosponsor.
Mitsuo Ikeda, Coordinator of ACA
