Annual meeting of the JSP, Sapporo(大学院生が日本藻類学会第36回大会に参加)

Nearly couples weeks ago, the 36th annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Phycology (JSP) was held at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, and three MS students of our lab attended.

For two of the three students, it was the first attendance to the academic conference. However, they didn't looks so nervous.


Cladophora aegagropila
Just at the university museum, there was also the the special exhibition regarding the algae. This is the living Cladophora aegagropila.

It is interesting. This is the former entrance plate of the "old" Institute of Algological Research, Hokkaido University, Muroran branch. This old building was closed just a month ago, and the institution was moved to newly constructed building. Plate was transported to the museum as the new heritage.


Climate of Sapporo was pretty good with comfortable temperature and humidity. Next annual meeting will be held in Kofu City of Yamanashi Prefecture near Tokyo.
