Mr. ZHAO received Best Discussant Award and Best Presentation Award in the 15th International Conference on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems (KICSS 2020).
Mr. ZHAO, Jing (2nd-year master's student in Nagai lab of Human Life Design Area) received Best Discussant Award（3rd position）and Best Presentation Award in the 15th International Conference on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems (KICSS 2020).
The 15th International Conference on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems aims to facilitate technology and knowledge exchange between International researchers/scholars in the field of knowledge science, information systems, and system science and creativity support systems intensively. The conference covers a broad range of research topics in the fields of knowledge engineering and science, information technology, creativity support systems and complex system modeling. The conference has so far been an important event and has attracted many scientists, engineers and researchers from academia, government laboratories, and industry internationally.
KICSS 2020 was be held at online during November 25-26, 2020.

Effects of working plane design in working space on occupant's mind concentration
Zhao Jing, Nagai Yukari, Shen Tao
The working space environment plays a crucial role in the sides of occupant's productivity and satisfaction. Not only the big range of air quality, daylighting, etc., but also the small aspect of personal working table, chair, and the other little things, can affect the occupant. Nowadays, the problem of student homework distraction during their study time is more and more concerned. To improve the students' homework efficiency, we concentrated on the working table plane in the homework environment and researched how natural things use in the working plane influence the occupant's mind concentration. Experiments of Three kinds of working table plane environment on occupant's mind concentration were completed. The first experimental environment is a single-color background table environment, the second is the natural pattern background table environment, and the last one is the indoor plant table environment. From the compared result of these three working table plane environments, the groups of natural patterns and the indoor plants had a good task result in terms of student's mind concentration compare with the single-color group. Therefore, we could get the result that natural things have a positive effect on the occupant's mind concentration.
I am greatly honored to receive the awards. Thanks to my professor Nagai Sensei for the kind instructions to me, and thanks to all the chairs and the organizers of KICSS 2020 for giving me this chance. In this research, it measured the participants' mind concentration in different table environments. Also, there are some limitations to it. I will try my best to learn more to perfect it and do more good researches in the future.
