img_shonanmtg100.png

NII launched the NII Shonan Meeting as the first Dagstuhl-style seminar in Asia in February 2011. This international seminar series consist of a small group of 25-35 participants, the top-level researchers in the discipline of informatics from all over the world and they focus on discussing intensively on the particular themes, by staying together at the Shonan Village Center. And now the seminars have gained high reputation as the effective and useful venue for the research discussion from the participants.

As commemorating the NII Shonan Meeting's 100th milestone starting from the first seminar, NII is holding Shonan Meetings 100th Commemorative Symposium on June 22nd. We are aiming at building up more advanced and enhanced series of seminar through discussing the announced achievements from the last seminars and the problems to be solved from now on.

The symposium will have two distinguished keynote speakers. Professor Raimund Seidel at Saarland University, a director at Dagstuhl and an authority in Computational Geometry, will talk about the essence of Dagstuhl meetings, and Professor Pierre Casteran at University of Bordeaux, a recipient of the ACM Software System Award for the Coq proof assistant system (a proof assistant system for the first mechanical proof of the four-color theorem), will talk about principles and applications of Coq.

We are looking forward to having many researchers from universities and industries.
