NII Shonan Meetings, following the well-known Dagstuhl Seminars, aim to promote informatics and informatics research at an international level, by providing yet another world's premier venue for world-class scientists, promising young researchers, and practitioners to come together in Asia to exchange their knowledge, discuss their research findings, and explore a cutting-edge informatics topics.
The meetings are held in Shonan Village Center (near Tokyo), which offers a combination of facilities for conferences, trainings, lodging in a resort-like setting. The friendly and open atmosphere is to promote a culture of communication and exchange among the meeting participants. The NII International Meetings are managed by National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Japan.
(2) Scope and Style
NII Shonan Meetings follow the style of the Dagstuhl Seminars. A meeting usually lasts for four days (Monday to Thursday) or shorter. It is initiated by at most three organizers (one from Asia), established leaders in their field, representing the different communities invited to the Seminar, preferably from different institutions. NII invites on their behalf about 25 to 35 researchers of international standing from academia and industry.
Like Dagstuhl Seminars, an NII Shonan Meeting typically does not come with a fixed program. Instead, the pace and the program are guided by topics and presentations that evolve through discussions.
All administrate work of a meeting will be supported by the NII team, so that the organizers can focus on choosing research topics and selecting active researchers for the meeting.
(3) Proposal Submissions
NII invites international standing scientists to submit proposals for international meetings on any topics of informatics. Submission is closed in June 15th, September 15th and December 15th. Notification of acceptance is made after about 40 days of each closing day.
