About Dr Hosako
Iwao Hosako received his PhD from the University of Tokyo in 1993. After two years at ULSI Laboratory of NKK Corp. from 1993 to 1994, he joined Communications Research Laboratory (former name of NICT). He is currently the Executive Director of the Beyond 5G Research and Development Promotion Unit and Director General of the Terahertz Research Center at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Japan. His research focuses on terahertz semiconductor devices, cameras, wireless systems, standards, and regulations. He has served as Vice Chair of the IEEE 802.15.3d Task Group and is currently Vice Chair of the IEEE 802.15 Standing Committee on Terahertz (SC-THz) and IEEE 802.15.3mb. He served as a working group member of the Beyond 5G (6G) Promotion Strategy Roundtable of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan from January 2020 to June 2020.
How to use terahertz wireless communications at 6GIn the next generation of mobile communication systems (beyond 5G or 6G), terahertz radio communication is expected to be introduced, enabling ultra-high speed of over 100 Gbps using the frequency band above 100 GHz. The attractiveness of terahertz radio, the use cases, the current status of R&D, etc. will be discussed.

Prof Nenad Naumovski
About Dr Nenad Naumovski
Dr Nenad Naumovski (PhD, MAIFST) is a Chef, Food Scientist and Molecular Nutritionist and works at the University of Canberra (ACT, Australia) as a Professor in Food Science and Human Nutrition. He leads a Functional Foods and Nutrition Research Laboratory (FFNR Laboratory) and holds academic conjoint positions as the Visiting Professor at the Harokopio University of Athens (Athens, Greece), Abertay University (Scotland) and University of Newcastle (Australia). Nenad has a strong research interest in the development of functional foods and the effects of food and nutrients on psycho-cardiometabolic markers associated with healthy ageing.
The role of food science and human nutrition on development of functional foods for the management of stress, anxiety and sleepThere is strong evidence that supports the importance of adhering to adequate dietary patterns in the overall human health. The rise in technological advancements, convenience of quick and easy meals to prepare, accessibility and overindulgence in ultra-processed foods were seen as the hallmarks for majority of the health issues currently seen in the world. With the global population on increase and consequences of recent pandemic (economical, physical and psychosocial) it is a no surprise that the levels of stress and anxiety in the population are also on the rise. Furthermore, poor dietary choices and some aspects of mental health are directly related, allowing for the continuation of vicious cycle of this two-way relationship. This presentation will include the findings from current studies relating to some of the functional foods and nutraceuticals as well as adhering to different dietary approaches that may be used in coping with stress, management of anxiety and improvements in the quality of sleep. Some of the most common functional foods and beverages of animal and plant origin including their active functional groups will also be presented.
