Lab Retreat 2018

Date: Aug 7 (Tue) - 9 (Thu), 2018

Venue: Hotel Gujo-Hachiman, Gifu Prefecture

Purpose: Share our knowledge and exchange our ideas within/outside of our laboratory.

Attendees: MI Lab @ NAIST-IS, Sakumura Lab @ NAIST-BS, Sakumura Lab @ Aichi PU, Maruno Lab @ Kyoto WU


Some give a tutorial lecture on a topic related to his/her research.

Each of the other attendees gives a lecture presentation on his/her own research.

If you are assigned to one of the poster sessions, please prepare your poster in B1 size.

Every student is required to submit a report on your/others' presentation to the supervisor after the lab retreat.

Travel Information:

A bus will pick up attendees at NAIST, Gakken-Kitaikoma Sta., Takanohara Sta., and Kyoto Sta.

An attendee can take trains at your own risk and payment. See
