WHO SHOULD ATTEND
SPECIAL visit to the Kyoto imperial palace is planned for the YRM. The imperial palace located at the center of Kyoto city preserves the look and ambiance of the Palace as it had been in the time of Japan's ancient imperial dynasties. A special arrangement is planned for the attendees to visit INSIDE the walls of the palace and to enjoy 1 hour guided tour in English through the Shisinden, the Seiryoden, the Kogosyo, the Ogakumonjyo, and the Otsunegoten that reflect the architectural styles of various periods. The current Palace was rebuilt in 1855, but you will be able to experience one of the most magnificent, valuable, and historical atmosphere in Japan. This tour is specially arranged, and is not normally served in other tours and courses. We will need to ask for your passport number prior to inform the Imperial Household Agency Kyoto Office and reserve the tour for you.
The dinner party will be held at Kyoto international community house. The fabulous special conference room, numbers of Japanese sake, delicious foods will welcome you. Let us all enjoy the moment talking and discussing our research works, the future and issues of the fields of thermal science and engineering, exchanging knowledge not only for scientific stuffs but also culture and academia ones. Let us create a new network, first small but that which connects to further meetings in other conferences, visiting others, and building friendship.
NETWORKING is the main purpose of this meeting. The YRM is intended to promote networking and friendship among young scientists active in the field of thermal science and engineering through communications and discussions of their interests in a young, dynamic and international context, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The coordinators of the event hope that small international groups of young researchers will come up and initiate firm collaborations and an active network through this event.
