The French National Research Agency (ANR) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) launched together a call for proposals in 2010 in the field of Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies and their usages. In this framework, they co-financed 4 large-scale French-Japanese projects. Two years after the launching of the programme, the ANR and the JST organized on March 13-14, 2012 in Kobe, Japan, a mid-term review workshop for the funded projects. The event gathered more than 80 French and Japanese academic and industrial participants around broad topics such as security evaluation, wireless communication with Terahertz, the exposure of wireless network on fetus and high performance computing. The workshop participants were invited to visit the K computer, one of the worldâ€™s most powerful supercomputers which can reach up to 10,51 petaFLOPS.
