We provide opportunities for former international student members who have returned to their home countries to present their research and introducing activities of forestry societies in Asian countries at annual meeting
Specifically, poster presentations will be made available on-demand during the annual meeting for former international student members who have returned to their home countries to follow up on their research after receiving their degrees, to provide them with opportunities to present at annual meeting, and to foster international collaborative research among the former international student members and with Japanese members. In addition, an online exchange meeting will be held in real-time format during the annual meeting, providing an opportunity for participants to communicate directly with each other and exchange opinions for future collaborations. At the same time, we also provide poster presentations introducing the activities of forestry societies from Asian countries and others.
These activities are going to be planned also at the 134th Annual Meeting held in March 2023. Click here for more details.
Relevant event in the 134th Annual Meeting
Online Reunion of Ex-Overseas Student Members and International Networking Forum among Forest Societies in Asia
Coordinator: OHKUBO Tatsuhiro (Director of International Exchange, JFS, Utsunomiya University) and OTA Masahiko (Nagasaki University)
Aim of this event
There are many active international student members in The Japan Forest Society. However, due to the burden of membership fees and other factors, many of them withdraw from the Society after returning to their home countries, and the relationship with the Society often becomes estranged. The purpose of this project is to provide an opportunity for former international students who have already returned to their home countries to participate in the conference and make presentations, taking advantage of the merits of the online conference. The purpose of this event is to follow up their research after obtaining their degrees, to provide them with an opportunity to present their research at academic conferences, and to form the seeds of international joint research among former international student members and with Japanese members.
The poster presentations submitted in advance by the participants will be opened to the public in an asynchronous (on-demand) format during the entire meeting. In addition to this, we plan to hold an exchange meeting in a synchronous (real-time) format to provide an opportunity for participants to communicate directly with each other and exchange opinions for future exchanges. And also we plan to include an introduction of activities from forestry societies in Asian countries (South Korea and China). We hope that international and Japanese members who currently belong to Japanese universities will actively participate in the meeting.
If you would like to participate in the networking meeting in a synchronous (real-time) format, please send the required information (participant’s name, status, affiliation, and e-mail address) to Dr. Ota Masahiko (email@example.com) by the deadline (see below). We will send you the web meeting (Zoom) address.
