100th Commemorative Symposium of Shonan Meetings

In October 2017, NII finally reached the 100th seminar of the Shonan Meetings. In commemoration of this, NII is holding Shonan Meetings 100th Commemorative Symposium in Tokyo on June 22nd, 2018. 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.
