Welcome to the Conference and Workshop Section

OIST Workshops” are used as a vehicle to provide training in advanced scientific techniques and to share new discoveries at the cutting edge of science. One of the main goals is to expose participants at OIST Workshops to a wide range of scientific approaches and a broad overview of the field of research. By inviting some of the most prominent researchers from around the world, and offering eager workshop participants the unique opportunity to observe the latest advances in science, OIST Workshops strive to become a hub for scientific exchange between Asia and the rest of the world.

OIST Mini Symposia” – a small-scale symposium with the duration of 2-3 days – offer OIST faculty members the opportunity to organize meetings on a short notice, providing them with support to conduct meetings to discuss new developments in their field of research, to share new discoveries at the cutting edge of science with researchers from other institutions from Japan and abroad, and provide them with support for starting up new research collaborations.

The role of the Conference and Workshop Section is to support all aspects of the “OIST Workshops” and “OIST Mini Symposia” organized by OIST Faculty.

Apart from the “OIST Workshops” and “OIST Mini Symposia”, OIST hosts various types of international workshops to enhance cooperation with Japanese and overseas research and academic institutions in order to pursue world-class research and education in science and technology in Okinawa. Another objective of OIST is to actively contribute to the sustainable development of the region. To facilitate these objectives, OIST offers state-of-the-art facilities for research, comfortable and convenient lodging for visiting professors and exchange students, and attractive and functional venues for international symposia, workshops, and industrial-related and community-related events. For information on how to apply for the usage of OIST facilities, please see our conference venue website.
