126. Kyoto University - Graduate School of InformaticsThe capitalist society was an industrial society where land, commodity and capital are worth possessing. A post-industrial society was called an information society where information itself is an origin of worth. This is because information became movable and sharable as information and communication technology (ICT) developed. In cooperation with the arrival of information society, the Graduate School of Informatics at Kyoto University was established in April, 1998 by reorganizing and integrating many chairs related to information. It is to be noted that the new terminology "informatics" was needed instead of more familiar words such as information technology or information Science because of the width of related research areas. However informatics is not a union of the areas. We aimed to explore a genuine new research field, informatics, by promoting pioneering, creative and interdisciplinary academic works in the areas. Three main pillars of education and research in the Graduate School of Informatics are "1) interface between people and society, 2) mathematical modeling, and 3) information systems." An individual curriculum has been formed which connects various research areas to each in the following six departments, "Intelligence Science and Technology, Social Informatics, Applied Analysis and Complex Dynamical Systems, Applied Mathematics and Physics, Systems Science, and Communications and Computer Engineering." The most important subjects in the curriculum are "Advanced Study" in Master Course and "Advanced Seminar" in PhD Course, respectively, for preparing thesis. Graduate students usually aim to be independent academic researchers or technical professionals of high level by improving their specialty through such subjects. Most students have experience in making presentation at a conference and in contributing paper in their school days. Many of them have received some paper and student awards or research funds.
A distinguishing feature in education of the Graduate School of Informatics is to cultivate an abundance of talented human resources with a wide range of view as well as a high specialty. Recently a specialization of each university with respect to its missions has been required in Japan. The Graduate School of Informatics has attached greater importance to the missions both academic and technical professionals of high level. For the latter purpose many cooperative chairs and units from some institutes at Kyoto University and some companies have been kept from the beginning. A new cooperative unit between Osaka University, NAIST and three research institutes of companies located in Keihanna Area is placed and Office at UC Berkeley is now opened. In Curriculum many subjects common in the school are formed such as "Perspective in Informatics." Practical subjects are also formed such as communications in English and Japanese and a supercomputer simulation.
By the way serious problems have begun to appear such as a negative face of information society and a bad impression of younger generation about ICT. Therefore the Graduate School of Informatics with the aim of developing sound and harmonized information society should look a new direction of the next age. What is a post-information society? The 21st Century COE Program (2002-2006) and the Global COE Program (2007+) which several departments joined prescribe a "knowledge society" for the post-information society. We thought that an aim of the Graduate School of Informatics is to change the present information society to the sound and harmonized information society, namely, the knowledge society. The foundation of the knowledge society will be established through ICT connected to mathematical and systems Sciences which is just an intersection of the three main pillars of the Graduate School of Informatics.
Though it may be a possible viewpoint to place informatics as a theory to develop the knowledge society, it is a destination of the Graduate School of Informatics on the twelfth year. The pillars intersect at one point here and deepen their own theories in symbiotic multi-cultures. Many talented human resources who can consider from the fundamentals and open up a new field in informatics have grown. However we should develop pioneering, creative and interdisciplinary new research fields being explored through mutual interactions among various fields to improve informatics more and more without contenting ourselves with the present level. The fresh air of inside or outside of Kyoto University should blow in from the open windows. If those say that our collective action and an international evaluation are relatively weak with all individual research activity, we should obtain dazzling achieve by systematic expansions. We sincerely welcome any honest criticism or views from inside or outside the school.

The Division of Biological Science consists of the three departments of zoology, botany, and biophysics. In the Department of Zoology, we promote research for the principle understanding of living beings and of the diversity of the world in which living creatures reside. The Department of Botany and the Department of Biophysics conduct advanced research for the understanding of biodiversity and the definition of life.
129. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Science - Faculty of Science - Division of ChemistryChemistry, as the core investigative system of "Material Science," has played a central role in the development of this Science which supports contemporary society, built around the hubs of a systematic understanding of the principles and laws governing the character of material, and the creation of newer and more expedient materials. The research objective of chemistry is all materials which exist as gases, liquids, and in a solid state, and ranges diversely from simple organic & inorganic compounds and metallic units to complex organism-related molecules.
The Division of Chemistry is comprised of 29 laboratories, 16 from the Department of Chemistry (Kitashirakawa Campus), 7 from the Institute for Chemical Research (Uji Campus), 1 from the Institute for Virus Research (Hospital Campus), 1 from the Institute for Reactor Research (Kumatori Campus), 1 from Research Center for Low Temperature and Materials (Yoshida Campus) and 3 laboratories headed by the adjunct faculty members of Kyoto University.
The field of research and education in the Division of Chemistry envelopes the diversity and multilayer characteristics which chemistry possesses, and is mainly classified into four areas: Theoretical & Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry of Materials, Organic Chemistry, and Chemical Biology. By integrating the study of these four areas, we are developing ultimately desired innovations in the fundamental fields such as the precise description of chemical reactions and the methodology to synthesize arbitrary molecules. Additionally, our objective in this Division is to enhance fundamental chemical concepts into a highly complex system including vital phenomena, and as a result foster graduate students who can accomplish such research.
130. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Science - Faculty of Science - Division of Mathematics and Mathematical AnalysisMathematics aims to clarify the laws governing number, figures, and quantities. Mathematics has built a solid system in its long history, and countless new problems are arising from within mathematics itself and from the influence of other Sciences such as physics, biology, and economics among others, and new theories are being created one after another. In addition, due to the universal characteristics of mathematics, it has forged connections with various fields including information Science and economics, as well as the natural Sciences.
The Department of Mathematics has produced numerous highly recognized mathematicians among its graduates including two Fields Medalists, Dr. Heisuke Hironaka and Dr. Shigefumi Mori. On the basis of this tradition, the Department of Mathematics has continually led the world with respect to research while making the best use of the "Academic traditions of freedom" of Kyoto University.
In graduate education we are achieving tremendous results, grooming the next generation of researchers who will lead the world in research study. In addition, many of our graduates have played an active part in society as well as being researchers of mathematics. Since the inception of the policy to particularly emphasize the graduate school, we have worked to foster "a human resource to play an energetic role in society with advanced expertise in mathematics" including that of actuary, through the establishment of a cooperative adjunct course of Actuarial Mathematics. Moreover, it is our aim to produce excellent junior and senior high school teachers of mathematics.
