We have acquired a lot of patents thanks to it. In addition, we have started High-performance computing on cloud® service with the aim of the utilization of HPC (High Performance Computer) as typified by "K". The laboratory was established in FOCUS (Foundation for Computational Science) next to "K", and our service has been selected as the business for industry use of "K".

As a main event, we held a big 30th anniversary memorial special lecture and party.
