8:30-21:30 Post-conference Excursion
The ICT98 will have a plenary session and single technical session with invited and contributed talks, and two poster sessions with contributed papers. 187 abstracts in total were accepted for presentation by the Organizing Committee. As a rule, papers the Organizing Committee expects to be of common interest are scheduled for oral presentation, whereas papers felt to stimulate detailed discussion are classified for poster presentation.
A welcome party will be held at the Conference Venue on Sunday evening, May 24, starting 5:30 pm. On Monday evening we will leave the Conference Venue at 5:30 pm by bus for the Mixer at Nagoya Port, to enjoy night cruising on KINKO or HEISEI-1. The conference banquet will be held at the Nagoya International Hotel on Wednesday, May 27, from 7:30 pm. On Thursday evening, we will have a farewell party at the Conference Venue starting at 6:30 pm. Sightseeing tours were not arranged for accompanying persons, owing to lack of interest.
We will have an exhibition by 12 companies from Canada, Israel, Russia, Ukraine and Japan, featuring their latest thermoelectric devices and products, as well as products and equipment related to thermoelectricity, from Monday through Thursday on the 9F of the Conference Venue.
Participants in the Post-Conference Excursion will visit the National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS), and traditional workshops for Japanese Paper (Washi) in Mino City and Tempering Japanese Swords in Seki City; and enjoy cormorant-fishing on a boat. The course and fee are shown below. If you wish to participate in the Excursion, please apply to the Secretariat using the Registration Form enclosed with the 2nd Announcement.
Note: The Registration Form is not avialable online and but may be requested from the conference Secretariat.
Schedule : May 29 (Friday) 1998, 8:30 - 21:30
Fee : 10,000¥ (Bus transportation, Lunch and Dinner included)
Capacity: 45 seats (Seat reservation on a first-come-first-served basis)
Evening Seminar --- Past, Present, and Future of Thermoelectrics will be held on Tuesday night, with four distinguished scientists who will talk about their experiences to encourage young scientists and engineers for the future of thermoelectric science and technology. Not only young scientists but those with longer experience are welcome.
Place: Sakae Gas Hall at the Sakae Gas Building
Instructions for preparing full-length papers for the Conference Proceedings were sent to all speakers. The authors were asked to submit their manuscripts at the conference site during the ICT98. Deadline is May 26, 1998. Only presented contributions will be refereed for inclusion in the proceedings.
There will be a best-paper award for both oral and poster contributions presented by
young scientists. The awards will be given at the end of the
conference, during the farewell party.
This is a very new idea for ICT.
Before the official poster session begins each day, the authors are given one minute
each to briefly summarize their papers in the Main Hall, using one viewgraph, to help
participants quickly understand the key points of their presentations. Authors
wishing to make this quick oral presentation are required to
contact the Secretariat by FAX or e-mail before April 30, as we notified in the previous letter.
