Only standard PC-style XGA connections to the LCD projector will be supplied. 25 min talk + 5 min discussion are allotted to invited talks, and 10 min talk + 5 min discussion to contributed talks.


Authors should set up their materials at least before 10:00. Authors are encouraged to stay by their posters to answer questions and must be by their posters from 13:30 − 14:30. During these times, if the Session Chair finds a poster that is not represented by an author, the poster will be designated as a “No Show” and the conference paper will not be considered for publication. The surface area available for posters is approximately 1.2 m (width) * 1.8 m (height). Posters should be shown until the end of oral sessions in the afternoon (Posters presented on Friday should be removed at 15:00). Authors are reminded to remove all of their materials within each day. The Conference staff will discard materials that are not removed, in order to prepare for the next poster session.

There will be two awards made for each day. Nature of the Award: This award consists of JPY5,000 certificate. Ribbons will also be attached to the successful posters.
