Next-Generation Panel Presentation

  • As in past conferences, we will actively support presentations by doctoral students and young scholars (less than eight years after receiving their degrees).
    *In consideration of the region, theme, etc., the "Next-Generation Panel Presenters" selected from the "Next-Generation" applicants will be exempted from the registration fee and provided with a partial subsidy (fixed amount) for travel expenses.
  • Each panel will basically consist of a moderator, presenter, and discussant, with a total of 4 to 7 members. Including about three graduate students in the doctoral course among the presenters is desirable.
  • Panels are limited to 1 hour and 30 minutes per panel.
  • Panels are to be organized freely by the participating group/organization. The panel will be responsible for the preparation of all the presentation materials.
