Served as a Student Volunteer Chair for ACM UIST 2016. Thanks all for coming to Tokyo!
Organized The Second Workshop of SIGPX.
Created a web page for the new IEEE Computer journal article that introduces "Programming with Examples".
My Ph.D dissertation finally got online on the university's repository. Jun Kato, "Integrated Graphical Representations for Development of Programs with Real-world Input and Output", Mar. 2014.
In preparation for the CHI presentation, TextAlive is finally released as ver.βjs! Make videos within your browser.
Served as an organizing committee member for a special event named IPSJ-ONE. It gathered 19 top-notch researchers in Information Processing (computer science, information science, that sort of thing) from all over Japan, each of them giving 5-minutes talk introducing their work with their passion for research.
Visited the University of Toronto DGP and gave a talk. I'm also visiting the University of Manitoba HCI Lab in a few days and will give another talk. Both of these talks are about "Live Programming" in the real world, which is based on my Ph.D dissertation and discusses the direction of future work in my current position.
Received a Ph.D degree in Computer Science and started to work as a researcher in AIST, a research organization funded by the Japanese government in which over 2000 researchers work hard to contribute to both industry and science. My primary task won't change - to conduct interesting research, write good paper, and do some other stuff to make world better place with help of information technology :)
Upgraded Bootstrap framework from v2 to v3 for better browsing experience. What a modern flat design!
Started internship at Adobe Creative Technologies Lab in Seattle.
Back in Japan again. The future plan includes a visit to Beijing in this month and Boston and New York in October.
My paper about an IDE named DejaVu is accepted to ACM UIST 2012. The details will come later.
Back in Japan... In June, I will start an internship in Redmond.
Renewed the website.
Started an internship at HCI Group of Microsoft Research Asia.
