  • Registration

  • Reception Party


    We will hold a reception party on the evening of July 24th on campus of the University of Tokyo.

    Please register below to attend. The fee, which will be collected on the day, will be about 5000 yen. Though it is undecided yet how much, we will reduce the fee to 2000 yen for young researchers. Due to the size of the venue, we have limited seats available on a fist-come-first-served basis.


    Thank you to everyone that registered to attend the reception party.

    We are now closing registration since we are fully booked. (6/2/2017)
