This paper summarizes the activity for drawing up new long-term academic roadmaps which were undertaken by the Transdisciplinary Federation of Science and Technology (TRAFST) during the fiscal 2008 year, following with the previous year. The new roadmaps for the transdisciplinary science and technology focused on three basic themes associated with the activity of TRAFST, the knowledge integration (sometimes referred to as consilience); modeling and simulation of social systems, and supporting technology of human and social life, which were discussed and completed by the designated working groups.
