2017 Workshop



Our 2017 workshop for this project will be held in Nagasaki Japan, January 20-22, 2017. (Participation is by invite-only.)



Schedule of events:

January 19: Participants arrive

Upon Arrival at the Nagasaki Airport, take the Prefecture bus (approximately 45 minutes) to the end of the line (Nagasaki Station).
