Visiting Program Section

OIST's Visiting Programs are handled by the TSVP Team, however, we frequently get support from other members of OIST, especially the Office of the Dean of Research to which the Visiting Program section belongs. If you have questions about the program or the application process, please contact us via email: tsvp [at]
Note that the abbreviation TSVP is often used to refer to all OIST's Visiting Programs, not just the parts of the programs focused on theoretical projects.
