The Mathematical Society of Japan, Seasonal Institute
Our idea is to obtain an overview of the significant recent developments in the subject, and to present it especially to young researchers in Japan, as well as Asian countries. The subject will be chosen by the Scientific Committee of the Mathematical Society of Japan every year. This is a succession of our conference series MSJ-IRI (Math. Soc. of Japan, International Research Institute). We had 15 successful conferences, and our idea is to continue the conference in the same spirit, but also to contribute mathematical communities outside Japan.
