The 52nd Naito Conference

Outline

The Naito Conference is an international academic conference that has been held since 1991 for the purpose of promoting basic research in the natural sciences, and the 50th conference was held in the present year. This conference is a closed international conference that will be held through four days. It consists of about 25 leading researchers in the thematic areas invited from around the world and about 60 poster presenters selected by organizing committee from the public applicants.
