OIST Mini Symposia for April-September, 2016 (FY2016)

The category “OIST Mini Symposia” – a small-scale symposium with the duration of 2-3 days – addresses a specific scientific theme or topic, focusing on current trends and recent findings in the field of interest.  Unlike OIST Workshops, talks at the Mini Symposia can be highly technical and specific for the field of research of the organizing unit.
