My research group has consistently published ~20 papers per year for 15 years, and most of these papers were published in the top 25% of journals (CiteScores) with an average citation of > 100. How did we manage to do this? There are several reasons. In this interactive talk session, I will share one core secret: how to write a lot and well. If you can do it, you are invincible in academia or elsewhere. But how do you do this? You should consider writing a review to transform you into an amazing writer.
This interactive workshop is intended for those starting or considering a systematic review-like project. I will provide a quick overview of the systematic review process. The focus will be on the most common traps you may encounter and ways to avoid them. The interactive presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. For example, you may want to ask: "What are the types of reviews and what are they good for?", "What is a great topic for a systematic-like review?", "How long will it take?" etc.
Our presenter Dr. Hie Lim Kim and Dr. Gouki Okazawa will discuss how to build a career in global Academia. Since Dr. Kim completed her Ph.D. at SOKENDAI, she has developed her career in U.S. and then Singapore. Dr. Okazawa also completer his Ph.D. at SOKENDAI in 2013, he worked as postdoc at New York University and then is currently a PI in China. They will show how to develop a personal career blueprint and devise contingency plans. Their talks include selection process they experienced in each country. You will learn how early-career scientists can best prepare for success in a career. OIST(Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University) students will join in lecture and then breakout session for interaction with SOKENDAI students.

OIST Café is a casual science information session to introduce the OIST PhD program, Research Internship, and other workshops. What do cutting-edge research and education look like? What are the qualification and criteria to get into Graduate School? What are the career options after the graduation? OIST members such as PhD students and admissions officers will meet you to answer all your questions!
Are you interested in making your presentations more memorable? Would you like to participate in a global event and give a speech on the big stage?
The Falling Walls Lab events and similar 3min pitch competitions give young researchers the chance to impress the world with their work.
In this briefing session Moe Atwa (recent OIST Graduate; Falling Walls Lab Sendai 2023 winner and global finalist) and Jonas Fischer (Academic Coordinator for Visiting Programs; Falling Walls 2020 Top 10 Winner) will talk about their experiences at the Falling Walls Lab Sendai and the global finals in Berlin. In addition, Izabela Porebska and Theodoros Bouloumis of OIST’s Orators Club will share their experiences from Falling Walls, “3 Minute Thesis”, and similar events.
The main part of the session will be on general methods and tips to make your presentations more engaging.
Finally, we will explain how to apply for the Falling Walls Lab Tokyo 2023 on July 25th, which will be co-hosted by OIST, and the planned practice sessions in June and July.
However, there is no need to apply for the actual Falling Walls Lab in order to join this briefing session. Feel free to join if you are interested in the topic in general, or thinking about joining the Falling Walls Lab competition or a similar event in the future. Open to all students, postdocs, and employees at OIST.
**This event has been canceled.**

This Mini Course will provide participants with a better understanding of tools and techniques used for gathering, understanding and using geographical data. Although the focus is on human mobility data, principles and practices are relevant to much broader fields. We hope many of you will be able to join and consider potential applications in your own research. Each session is independent, so feel free to attend just one or both!
