Twelve abstracts will be selected by the Scientific Program Committee, and an Oral Concurrent Session is also planned. We encourage you to apply HERE.
“I would like to explain why I designed Korin’s “Red-and-White Plum Blossoms” for the announcement of Call for the Late-Breaking Abstract.
Michizane Sugawara (845-903), known as a God of Learning, has a famous poem: “When the east wind blows, my dear plum blossoms, remember spring coming even if your master won’t be here”.
At this very moment, plum blossoms are in full bloom in Japan. I hope that the fragrance of plum blossoms will remind you that the call for Late-Breaking Abstracts is now open.
We look forward to your visit to Japan and hope that your attractive abstracts will make our meeting a success.”
Korin’s “The Red and White Plum Blossoms” is owned by the MOA Museum of Art, located in Atami, a city known for its scenic hot springs.
The distance from Shinjuku, where ISID 2023 will be held, to Atami is only one and a half hours by JR train, transferring to the Shinkansen bullet train at Shinagawa Station.
Unfortunately, this folding screen is currently on display in time for the plum season, and another exhibition is scheduled during ISID 2023.
Still, I think Atami is a town worth visiting in the sense that you can enjoy a hot spring resort close to Tokyo.
