He served as the auditor and the director of the Color Science Association of Japan (CSAJ). He presently member of the editorial board of Color Research and Application. Since 2018, he is an executive committee member of the International Colour Association (AIC).

Dr. Jeeranuch Buddeejeen (Thailand)

"Color Application in Functional Packaging Design and Smart Service"

Dr. Buddeejeen received her Master’s degree from Thammasat Univeristy and PhD ((Industrial Engineering) from King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok. She has beeen a lecturer at Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) since 2012, teaching printing and Packaging Technology. She was a visiting researcher at Department of Management and Engineering, Linköpings Universitet, Sweden, Life Cycle Engineering Laboratory, Osaka University, Japan, and Universal Design Laboratory of Dr. T. Obama at Shizuoka University of Art and Culture, Japan.
Dr. Buddeejeen focuses her research on the functional Printing /Packaging for Smart Application. Color is the high priority to connect with agricultural/food products and smart packaging. We developed the area scale of color changing and design packaging to keep banana for long life time. The idea is accepted by the agricultural farmers in Thailand with interest in designing functional packaging. Thailand is a land producing the best food and fruit in the world.

Dr. Adi Djoko Guritno (Indonesia)

"The importance of color in the field of agroindustry"

Dr. Adi graduated from Gadjah Mada University, Jogjakarta, Indonesia with bachelor of agricultural technology, (Ir), got master of industrial engineering (MSIE) from Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia, and Ph.D. at United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences Ehime University, Japan. He is currently a permanent lecturer at Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia.
He serves a chairman of IAAI (International Association on Agro Industry) and a chairman of APTA (Association of Agro Industry in Indonesia). He was honored research fellowship from Japan Alumni Society and Science Organization (JASSO) and research fellowship from Japan Society for Promotion Sciences (JSPS).
He will talk on "The importance of color in the field of agroindustry" Color is a natural gift given to humans through various ways among them as an indicator of whether vegetables and fruits ready for consumption or not. The development of color is now very much developed where colors also have an effect that can affect consumers to buy agricultural products or not, and in the field of agro-industry now have to take into account the influence of colors and combinations that will provide additional value for the product itself. Agroindustry products come in two forms: fresh and processed (preserved). For fresh products a lot of effort is emphasized on the effort to keep the color from fading, wilt, dull, etc. As for the color processed products are more emphasized in the combination of the product itself and the accompanying packaging.

Dr. Ichiro Kuriki (Japan)

"Study on color category in Japanese by using a clustering analysis"

Dr. Kuriki received his Ph.D. from Tokyo Institute of Technology (1996), worked at Tokyo Institute of Technology (1996-99), University of Tokyo (1999-2001), and NTT Communication Science Laboratory (2001-05), before joining Tohoku University as an Associate Professor (2006-present). He investigates the mechanisms of human color vision by using psychophysics and functional brain imaging techniques. Recent works also revealed the presence of hue selective mechanisms in human visual cortex by fMRI (Cerebral Cortex, 2015), cortical responses to color category in prelingual infants by brain activity measured with NIRS (PNAS, 2016). He led a research group composed ot USA, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan to compare color categories among different countries.

Dr. Chanprapha Phuangsuwan (Thailand)

"Color constancy on 2D photographic images"

It is said that the color constancy does not take place on a 2D photograph. The concept of the recognized visual space of illumination RVSI developped by Ikeda asserts the color constancy occurs for a space for which the illumination can be recognized by the observer. Dr. Phuangsuwan confirmed the concept by demonstrating the color constancy on a 2D photographs. She received a Ph.D. at the Faculty of Science, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand in 2012 and returned to Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT) as a lecturer, presently an assistant professor. Her research interest is to investigate the color appearance of objects in relation to the space recognition. She serves the director of Color Research Center CRC of RMUTT.
