Submission Details

The title, abstract, name of speaker, and other details of applications will be published regardless of their result.

Simultaneous Interpretation

As a new initiative, we are planning to provide simultaneous interpertation for selected sessions (Both Japanese to English and English to Japanese).
Sessions will be selected from those who have agreed to submit material early.
If your session is chosen to be interperted, we ask that you submit your talk material approximately two weeks (around Jan. 26th, 2019) prior to the conference. More information will be provided in December.
We believe that this initiative is significant in providing a more diverse conference, bringing both local and global attendees together as one community. Though we do understand that an early preparation will be a heavy burden for those selected, we kindly ask for your understanding.

Submission Limits

Each speaker may submit up to three talks. If a speaker has four or more submissions at the time of the deadline, all submissions by the speaker will be rejected.
If your talk has multiple speakers, be sure that the submission count for the owner (the submitter of the talk) does not exceed the submission limit.
As a general rule, no more than one session per speaker will be selected. This may not apply in cases where special consideration is needed (e.g. sessions with multiple speakers).
