・All events are held online through Zoom. The meeting URL will be sent to the participants by email. Research discussions, group work, and the reception are held by using “Breakout Rooms” in the Zoom meeting. Students are required to set his/her name in the Zoom meeting to “the presentation number, his/her name” such as “X-1, Taro Kyodai”.

・Research discussions: Each student gives an oral presentation on his/her research to the other members in the group (from A to J). The presentation time for each student is limited to 10 minutes. After each presentation, questions and answers are exchanged within the same group for another 5 to 10 minutes.

・Group work: Students propose a collaborative research plan through group discussion. The research plan must be interdisciplinary, spanning multiple (at least two) research fields. Students discuss the objective, methods, expected results, and social impacts of the proposed research. Students summarize their research plan in a short PowerPoint presentation (1 to 3 slides) during the group work, and the group leader submits these slides by email.

・During the rump session and the succeeding reception, participants may freely eat and drink.

・Presentation titles and presenter names are listed below in groups for the research discussions and group work.
