At the end of this month, I will go to San Francisco for a conference for a week. I will be taking three students with me, who go to a conference out of Japan for the first time. Therefore, I need to take care of them. I check all the figures and manuscripts. I hope that they will enjoy this opportunity.
From the early morning, I have been carrying out experiments with a student of mine and a researcher from Panasonic. By our side, a professor from Keio University was doing his with my colleague. When I had time, I was writing a paper, too. Students came to me once in a while to ask me how to submit their abstracts and register themselves with the conference (actually, the registration procedure was very complicated). I got so tired after these three day. When I came home, Katya started talking with her parents on Skype. Mariya was on a new foam-plastic matress we bought at Babies “R” Us in Odaiba. Katya … Continue reading
Today is Monday. I had to check e-mails to answer to the requests. Besides, three of my students sent me abstracts for a conference in San Francisco scheduled at the end of October. I discussed with them and they finished writing. The submission deadline is Friday. I came back home and watched Columbo on TV. Columbo is always nice to watch. I do not like CSI in which too many murders happen to show dead bodies.
Several years ago, I received a fund from an engineering association. I had been asked to give a talk at a conference about the research performed by using the fund , but I was not able to do so because of the schedules. Today, Sunday, I managed to attend Tokyo Institute of Technology where the conference was held. My talk was scheduled from 2:35 PM, so I arrived at the building before 2 PM. I gave a 15-minute talk. I hope it interested the attendees, although the field might not be exactly of theirs. After my talk, I left the conference venue to take trains, which I changed at Maguro. … Continue reading
I checked out “Sun Members Kobe” in the morning. I took breakfast at UESHIMA coffee shop located under the monorail station in Sannomiya. After taking a monorail, I arrived at the conference center at 9:30 AM. I gave a 20-minute talk from 10:20 AM and quickly left the conference hall and took a monorail back to Sannomiya. From Osaka, I took a plane back again to Haneda. There were vacant seats inside. After arriving at Haneda Airport, I moved to Kawasaki for a research report meeting of our institute. After the meeting in Kawasaki, I headed for Shinjuku this time for a real-estate meeting. After the meeting in Shinjuku, I … Continue reading
Yesterday, I went on a one-day business trip to Osaka. In the morning, I took Maya-san out for a walk, and went to Kofu station; I was going to Kobe today as I was asked to give a 20-minute talk in Kobe University tomorrow morning. This time, I took a plane using JAL miles. I charged two computers that I brought with me in a lounge in Haneda Airport. On the plane, the seat was by the left wing. It was full inside. The flight lasted for 45 min. A cup of coffee was served. A monorail stopped in front of the conference hall of Kobe University at 2 … Continue reading
The conference was held in Hilton Hawaiian Village and Hawaii Convention Center. Today, I mostly stayed at the convention center. For lunch, I stepped by a restaurant by Ala Wai Canal In the evening, there was a poster presentation, at which three students presented their posters. I think they did well. I came back to Hilton at 8PM. My presentation will be in the tomorrow afternoon. I am working on it with having an ice-cream bar and a salad for dinner. I will stay up late. .
I want to submit a paper before going to a conference in Hawaii, so I am working on it. The paper is being prepared with a collaboration of an American professor. Working with him makes me recognize that I am not a native English speaker, anyway. I can make my researches understood in English accurately enough, but it is more like a manual (and it is important, too). His English is vivid. Probably, this would not be learned any more. Anyway, after an evening nap, I will go to my office and work overnight.
Whenever I leave my legless chair, Maya-san comes quickly on the chair. I have to use a different one. The snails in the sea-water tank are fine. I am working before the conference in Hawaii.
After lunch, I walked around the conference hall. From 3:30 PM, I gave a 30-min invited talk. I think I did it OK, but there were not so many questions. After the conference, I walked around the COEX mall. I did not buy anything. I will buy souvenirs at the airport tomorrow. Banquet started at 6:30 PM. Since I knew nobody, I picked some foods and went back to the hotel. Tomorrow morning, I am leaving early for Japan.
