From the end of August to the early September, I will chair a scientific seminar in Nagano.
Many Asian researchers decided to come, fewer Americans and Europeans. Japanese researchers and students are much fewer than last year, partly because of the earthquake.
My colleagues and I called and sent e-mails, and today the number of the participant from the outside of our university raised up to 43.
I hope there will be more than 50 people.
It was less hot today. I have been doing without an air conditioner in my office this summer. I think I am getting used to it.
