The ISAJ Annual Symposium is an interdisciplinary symposium encompassing all areas of science and technology, organized by the ISAJ. This year it will be the 12th annual event.

To celebrate the first year of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). we will begin on the first day afternoon with the inaugural session followed by a plenary session dealing exclusively with the themes related to ocean science and technology. We will have the full second day for interdisciplinary sessions (as in previous years) encompassing all fields of science and technology, and this will include plenary and invited talks.

A major objective of the symposium is to create an opportunity for students and young scientists in Japan, irrespective of nationality, to showcase their research, exchange ideas, and foster collaborations, through face-to-face presentations (Oral, Poster, and Online presentations). The hybrid format will offer the opportunity to make presentations before a larger audience. ISAJ invites abstracts for poster and oral presentations in all disciplines of S&T.

Sessions will be designed around dedicated topics. Besides keynote and plenary talks by eminent scientists and researchers from both Japan and India, oral presentations and thesis challenge for student participants will also be organized.
