Joint Conferences

The TJYoung2 conference will be operated as one of a series of academic meetings on bioinformatics, named the Bioinformatics Week in Odaiba 2008 (BiWO2008; 4-7 Nov). Thus, after TJYoung2, you can also join the succeeding events [the 1st Japan-India Bilateral Symposium on Bioinformatics (JIBS; 6 Nov afternoon), 39th Meeting of the Special Interest Group on Molecular Biology Informatics, the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence (SIG_MBI (Japanese page); 6 Nov afternoon), and the Annual Meeting of Computational Biology Research Center 2008 (CBRC2008 (Japanese page); 7 Nov)], all of which will be held at CBRC, the same place.


Invitation to Lecturers and Supported Presenters

The invited lecturers and supported presenters will be invited to local tours (Nov 6 and Nov 7). These local tours will be organized to further enhance communication among students, young researchers, and professors from different countries.
