 For the purpose of enhancing Tokyo Tech research, the Office of Research and Innovation will hold the Beginner's Workshop for Journal Authors. The workshop is supported by the MEXT Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities.
 The workshop is intended to help researchers improve their scientific writing skills in English. Through this interactive workshop, native English-speaking lecturers will provide knowledge on submitting articles to academic journals and hands-on training in writing papers in English.
