The 106th SRD Annual Meeting will be held at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TAT), Fuchu, Tokyo, on September 12 −14, 2013. We are pleased to invite you to the TAT meeting, and SRD members are encouraged to present research findings in oral (10 min presentation with 5 min for discussion) and poster (2 h on the day of their presentation) sessions. The organizing members and associated program committees have planned two symposia regarding “Estrus of Domestic Animals” and “Effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals on Reproduction and Development”. In the open seminar, entitled: “Infertility Therapy and Reproductive Technologies”, active gynecologists and researchers of reproduction will talk about topics at the cutting edge of human infertility therapy to allow the public a chance to consider the importance of reproductive technology and contribution of SRD to human life. We encourage all attendees to take the fullest advantage of this opportunity to share ideas across animals and specific interests, talk with each other in person, and make new acquaintances at Fuchu in the early autumn.
