Guideline of Annual Meeting 2020 of Keio SFC Academic Society (Keio SAS2020)

We have held presentations based on oral and poster presentations at the Open Research Forum (ORF) in November every year.

This year, we decided to move the place of the presentation to the website in consideration of the influence of the Covid-19 Corona crisis. Then, we will hold the Fall Meeting in November 2020 and the Spring Meeting in March 2021 in this fiscal year 2020. For details, refer to the following explanation and FAQ.
