11. Concluding Remarks

 This scientific workshop was organized based on the keyword gRadio Waves and Challenge to the Shannon Limit.h As this keyword, the specialists of modulation and demodulation were invited. The meeting was very successful with 25 attendees and the discussions after each presentation were well activated. Mr. Otafs presentation especially, in which he says he can make the bandwidth half by his modulation scheme, made the discussions of everybody hot as the Spa of Yufuin is.

This workshop was held under the cosponsorship of IEEE APS, MTS, and VTS Japan Chapters.
