Universal Village exemplifies a desired future society that pursues human‐nature harmony through the wise use of technologies. The concept is an expanded & advanced version of Smart Cities, and signifies that we should follow the law of universe, protect environment/eco‐system, understand humans' need in depth, and innovate new lifestyles, thus providing sustainable happiness for humanity’s future. What makes the International Conference on Universal Village unique is that it expected to call for collective effort across multi‐disciplinary fields in order to develop a platform where researchers with different background would collaborate beyond the traditional boundaries of their research fields, and to find a systematic, coordinated, long‐term solution for the future of human and mother‐nature.The theme for UV2016 is “Expand our horizon: UV for regions at different developing phases, and for people atdifferent ages, with various technology & culture backgrounds .” Subjects for UV2016 include but are not limited to the following topics.

  • Develop systematic methodologies to advance UV technologies and to develop UV systems, including, intelligent transportation, intelligent environment & communities, intelligent healthcare, intelligent food systems, etc.
  • New life styles enabled by IT / New energy sources / New materials / Effective microorganism technology and environmental protection.
  • Address suitable paths of design, development, implementation, engineering and integration appropriate for different regions.
  • Explore how to benefit governments, companies, and universities on specific UVtopics as well as practical UV solutions.
