What is the IPEJ Project Team IT21?

The IPEJ Project Team IT21 was launched as a project team of the Institution of Professional Engineers, Japan (IPEJ), in April 1997, which based on the ideas as shown below, from the rules and regulations of the IPEJ Project Team IT21:

 

  • The Acceleration of the research, development and application of the latest and state-of-the-art information technologies.
  • Returning its results to the society from international viewpoint.
  • And, during these activities, self-help and mutual support, as an independent specialized professional engineer in the research and business fields.

The team holds monthly meetings to conduct business and the policy of the team is to encourage activities beyond the technical disciplines of its members.

What does the IPEJ Project Team IT21 do?

With our goals described below, monthly team meetings are held (see "Meetings", "Topic鐔 of Presentations").

 

  1. The collection, acquisition and application of the latest and state-of-the-art information technologies.
  2. Active participation to public lectures and information technology lectures.
  3. Writing, translation and publication about specific themes in information-related technology.
  4. Technical consultation to academic societies, local authorities and private enterprises.
  5. The support and participation to information technology-related projects including industrial societies, local authorities and the government.


Following each meeting is a party held by volunteers.  Delicious foods and drink allow us to strengthen the network among members. The party lasts about two hours.

In addition to the meetings, the members can communicate each other by means of the Internet as shown below;

 

  1. The mailing list which is joined by all the members of the Team IT21.
  2. The social networking service (SNS) which is joined by about 40 members of the Team IT21.

  The Team IT21 has a mailing list that is available anywhere in the world.  Its almost real-time communication produces light work for the Team IT21 and strengthens the connection of the members beyond the time and space.  There are hundreds of email sent every month, and there are active information and opinion exchanges.  Recently, several online meetings were held via Skype™, and a social networking service (SNS) of the Team IT21 was launched.
