User Meeting 2022


The 12th MECHANICAL FINDER User Meeting 2022 aims to provide on-site participation and presentations with sufficient infection control taken care of. We are planning to hold the meeting in a hybrid following the previous one, but we would be happy if you could join us on site.
This year, we are considering a session in the morning that will be limited to on-site sessions to allow for more exciting discussions. In the afternoon, as in previous years, we will have a session where you can present your research.
Regarding language, in principle, on-site and online language of this User Meeting will be Japanese. Presentations by overseas will be available to on-site and online participants as English video presentations. Presentations available in English on demand are marked “English“. Some presentations are yet to be determined for English video (marked with English TBD).
