JST Week is Coming!!

Jointly organized by JST, IEEE VR2011, and Singapore Science Centre Held in conjunction with IEEE VR2011

Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) is an integrated organization to promote research activities in science and technology in Japan. Also one of the missions of JST is to promote joint research collaboration between Singapore and Japan. We have tried to plan for a long time to organize an event here in Singapore to introduce the recent research activities in the virtual reality (VR) and related areas and also several research collaborations going on between Singapore and Japan.

Fortunately IEEE Virtual Reality 2011 (VR2011), the most prestigious conference in VR will be held in Singapore on 19 – 23 March 2011 at SUNTEC Convention Centre. We are proud to inform that we will organize JST Week in conjunction with this conference.

We plan to organize various events including lectures to experts, talks to Singapore public, demonstrations, etc. We hope you would join the event, observe the recent research development in VR area, and would understand that VR technologies would give strong impact to the future of our life.
