The108th SRD Meeting Organizing Members are pleased to invite you to the SRD annual meeting. The main meeting will be held at University of Miyazaki from 17 to 20 September 2015. At the Miyazaki Meeting we ensure enough time for oral and poster presentations to guarantee the opportunities for the sufficient discussion as we did in the past meetings. We would like to encourage young scientists and students, who should serve as important driving forces in our society of the next generation, to submit abstracts for SRD Outstanding Presentation Award and to participate actively in the Meeting. We also would like to encourage all attendees to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity to share ideas and insights with one another, and make new acquaintances in Miyazaki, the city known for its fine beach and scenic beauty.
