JSPS-DST Asian Academic Seminar 2008 has been held to provide young scientists from Asian countries with chances to exchange information of scientific research under the support of Japan Society for Promotion of Science of Japanese Government.
In collaboration with Department of Science and Technology (DST) of India, the JSPS-DST Asian Academic Seminar 2008 will be held at Jawaharal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bangalore, India from December 26, Friday to December 30, Tuesday, 2008.
This year meeting will cover the impact of the recent genomic revolution with special focus on four subjects, genome regulation (subject 1), manobiology and biophysics (subject 2), stress response (subject 3), and pathogenesis expression (subuject 4). A total of 25 leading scientists will be invited to give the series of lectures. During the meeting, an open forum will be held, in which all the participants are requested to present their own research to encourage the mutual interaction and future collaboration between the participants.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible participate in the JSPS-DST Asian Academic Seminar 2008 and take the benefit from this meeting.
A total of about 50 young participants from Asian countries will be invited to this year seminar.
JSPS (Japan Society for Promotion of Science) will support, at least partially, the international travel for participants from countries other than India while DST (Department of Science and Technology) of India will cover their staying expenses within India.
DST also supports the domestic travel for Indian participants. We strongly encourage young researchers from Asian countries to participate in this meeting.
