Language The Workshop will be conducted in English.

This workshop started as the RIAM (Research Institute for Applied Mechanics) Symposium which had been held for more than 10 years at Kyushu University, and after Professor Masashi Kashiwagi moved to Osaka University, this workshop was modified a little and held at Osaka University in 2012 and 2013 as International SOE (Ship and Ocean Engineering) Meeting for students and young researchers in Japan, Korea, and China. From 2015, we decided that this workshop will be hosted in turn among Korea, China, and Japan, and thus Seoul National University hosted this workshop in 2015 and Shanghai Jia Tong University hosted last year. Through this workshop, we can expect the cultivation of intercultural competencies and sensitivities to other cultures among students, young researchers, and faculty members. Any student and faculty in Chinese, Japanese and Korean universities (but not limited) can participate in this international event.

The objective of this workshop is basically the same as that of the previous RIAM Symposia, providing a forum to discuss the progress of the research in detail, exchange information and know-hows in computations or experiments, and get acquainted with participants each other. As a principle, the meeting must be rather small in size but will be informal and friendly. Thus younger researchers (especially students) are highly encouraged to participate and the organizer wishes they will be inspired to study more and to be international, particularly through friendly but competitive interactions with students in other countries.

If you are concerned with the technical program and the presentation materials (Power Points) in the past, please visit the home page for the SOE Meeting in 2013 (See the link at the top of the homepage for 2013).

Support This Workshop will be financially supported by Osaka University, but the total budget is rather limited. If the financial support is a must for your participation, please consult the organizer in advance.

Accommodation There are some accommodation facilities available in or near the campus, but normally we have difficulty in the reservation of enough number of reasonable rooms. As a result, participants (especially from Seoul National University) stayed at a hotel in the past. If you need support or help for the accommodation, please contact the organizer at your earlier convenience.

Application Please send an email to Professor Masashi Kashiwagi, with the following information:
1) Title of your talk

4) Do you need travel support?
5) Other requests; e.g. hotel, the date of presentation, invitation letter for VISA application

Note: Just attending will also be welcome.
Note: No need to prepare a written paper, Power Point presentation is preferable.
