Each session slot will include presentations on two or three topics. The sessions will include a short presentation followed by a question period.

Participants will be asked to sign up for the specific presentations ahead of time. They will be allowed to attend whatever parts of the schedule interest them. Long-term residents of Tsukuba and Japan are encouraged to attend the Meet and Greet, even if they do not attend the main orientation.

Attendance is FREE.
