InterRad is the international association of radiolarists. The 15th InteRad meeting will be held in Japan during 22-27 October in 2017. The InterRad is returning to Japan after 23 years since the InterRad 7 was held in Osaka in October, 1994. On the occasion of this international meeting, we are planning to do something in enhancing a degree of recognition of radiolarians. It is essential for any academic associations to introduce relevant topics into society. Several items are being newly produced in relation to the InterRad 15. They include enlarged models of radiolarian shell, play cards using scanning electron microscope images of radiolarian shell, and T-shirts with radiolarian printed on. The T-shirt is produced in collaboration with an artist Mr. Moria.
