Due to the effects of the coronavirus, the Annual Meeting was held online on March 15 this year, but about 100 people from Japan and overseas attended.
The plenary meeting and flash talks of research results were held via WebEx, and poster presentations were held using Remo, which allowed us to discuss the results in an atmosphere closer to face-to-face.
This year, there were 122 poster presentations from Japan and overseas.
Even though it has been 10 years since the earthquake, there are still many issues that need to be resolved, and despite the difficulties caused by the coronavirus, researchers from Japan and abroad were able to present 122 research projects in collaboration with the research institutes associated with ERAN, which is truly a great testament to the research activities of the researchers.
We will continue to work with the network and related institutions to further develop our research in a cross-field perspective.
