Prior to the poster session, we have a poster preview session, in which each poster presenter gives a three-minutes talk to advertise his/her poster, overview main results or ideas, and so on.

The poster session will take place in the salon (P01-P05) and in the room Y206 (P07-P18; 2nd floor). The session consists of two core times: those assigned an odd/even poster number are strongly advised to present their work in the first/last half of the session. Information for presenters (poster format, etc.) is explained here.


Banquet will be held on August 21st (2nd day), from 18:30. Participation will cost 5,000 yens.
