11.    Concluding Remarks

This sixth scientific workshop was entitled "Radio Waves and Biologyh and was the first cosponsored workshop with the URSI-K group. A diverse range of applications from medical issue and standardizations were presented by the front-line researchers in the field, and there was a fruitful gathering of participants both from the medical application and communication fields. The topics included technical issues of radio waves on ubiquitous communication and medical treatment, radio waves and non-invasive biological measurements, political issues on measurement standardization and numerical techniques, and botanical measurements of fruits by radio waves. Intensive discussions on this field of radio wave applications were held with discerning questions, and the meeting was a big success.
