The development of information network systems enables us to
communicate with people in remote places "anytime and anywhere",
enriching human knowledge, affection and sensibility. However, there
are various barriers which stand in our way to using these systems
freely and flexibly.  In order to discuss how to overcome these
barriers and create a more human-centered communication environment,
in 2007 the first International Symposium on Universal Communication
was held in Kyoto, Japan featuring discussions with well-known
researchers from around the world. Following its success, the Second
International Symposium on Universal Communication (ISUC 2008) will be
held at the Osaka International Convention Center, 5-3-51, Nakanoshima
Kita-ku, Osaka 530-0005 Japan on December 15-16, 2008.
