This is an opportunity for all actors in research and development in Japan (companies, researchers, students, institutional, etc.), to meet community of French-speaking scientist in order to initiate discussions, future projects or collaborations.

Call for Contributions

Two kinds of contributions are proposed:

(1) presentations (about 20min of talk including questions)
(2) posters (A0 size, portrait)

When submitting a contribution, it is possible to choose a  type of contributions (presentation or poster).
The Organizing Committee will therefore select the contributions to be presented as presentations or posters according to research topics.
An initial choice could therefore be changed from a presentation to a poster (not the opposite).

The main language at JFR'16 is French. However, text contributions (e.g.: posters or slides) can be written in French or English. 
Researchers not fluent in French but interested by this event can also present their work in english.

Important Dates

Deadline for submission (presentations or posters) is: October 31th 2016 Monday, November 07th, 2016 (extended deadline)
