Poster session guidelines:
Students' explain their activities achieved through the external network of the program or professors, e.g. internships, project building, syllabus design, etc. - the challenges and outcomes.
Students’ group work guidelines:
- Let's talk frankly! Are you doing “interdisciplinary study” well? How much can you learn in the field outside your specialty? Can you break through the boundary between your own research field and others?
- It is not easy to find jobs with Ph.D. in Japanese companies. Students of leading graduate schools can break the stereotype: “Ph.D. holders are specialists in a limited area with a narrow view”?
All students from 6 universities will be divided into mixed-groups to discuss the above on Saturday and share the results with all participants on Sunday.
