Welcome to RMIH 2019 Tokyo!
Research Meeting on Institutional and Health Talk for Social Applications (RMIH)
Social contribution by research
The current trend toward vocational studies makes it difficult for researchers to sustain the significance of sociolinguistics as an academic entity even though there is no doubt about the value of this discipline to the humanities and social sciences. The domain of sociolinguistics may be benefited if scholars revisit existing methodologies and adapt theories to current social requirements. This strategy would be especially advantageous in the current circumstances in which big data analyses influence the construction of public opinion.
Circulation for benefit
In particular, this research meeting emphasizes the model of the dissemination of benefits to the patient communities within which we begin our research endeavors by collecting data or where we find our insights. Each institution should analyze the data and conduct other trials to contribute the results of research to help patient communities by developing ICT tools or assisting in the building of appropriate policies.
In this conference, scholars will discuss ways to evaluate dementia and will hold multi-dimensional discussions on medical discourse as a genre of institutional communication.
This circulation of ideas is the ideal for all members engaging in academia-industry-government cooperation, as well as for interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities-social sciences and other science fields to encourage mutual notification of new developments.
Whether or not such acts can be acknowledged to be research achievements, they must form the necessary final stage and must also embody directions for future research.
The dementia senile is not a mad, but a challenger, who is facing the final fight for their unsolved life theme, while standing up to their physical fatigue and aging attack.
