Annual Meetings of CSJ

The Chemical Society of Japan

The Spring Meetings are held every year at the end of March, which is the end of the academic/fiscal year in Japan. Over a three year period, these meetings are held twice in the Tokyo area and once in the Osaka area. The presentations at these meetings address approximately 30 scientific fields.The Meetings consist of general presentations, lectures planned by the Organizing Committee, open-to-the-public seminars, special events designed by members, awardees lectures for various CSJ awards, and satellite symposia organized by Subcommittees. These meetings attract more than 8,000 participants each year, and are among the largest scientific meetings in Japan. The number of venues can exceed 50. Large universities in and around Tokyo and Osaka provide the necessary facilities.
The Fall Meetings were held in September/October except for the years when the Pacifichem conferences was scheduled. They were organized as joint meetings of the Japanese Chemical Societies Council and Divisions of the CSJ. Each of the 7 CSJ Branches hosted the Meetings in turn. The Fall Meetings were organized to address about 20 topics, with presentations and Division/Branch symposia invited to fit these topics.
The Board of Directors decided to discontinue the Fall Meetings after the 82nd, and instead support regional fall meetings by suggesting strategically important issues and measures for promoting research and development.
