1: He is leading a small group of researchers.

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

2: You can identify him with a photo. But the above is closer to reality, and sometimes, he becomes a Shochu man.

3: If you are interested in his uninteresting curriculum vitae, please click here.

4: His general thoughts on game theory are found in his book: Game Theory and Mutual Misunderstanding (Springer, 2004).

5: The SAET 2014 conference will be held at Waseda University for 19-21, August 2014. You can find the conference homepage: http://www.saet.uiowa.edu/event-14.shtml  Also, you can see its beautiful poster.
