We recommend speakers to present their own work. Each talk is usually 30 minutes long including discussion. The talk is basically held in English.

We kindly ask the host researchers to do an arrangement with the speakers and announcement for the lunch seminar by themselves. The lunch seminar organizers do not host each seminar except if there is no hosting research groups in Division of Science. Follow the instruction page.

To keep the scientific fields to be broad, we basically limit this seminar to have one guest talk per month by one group. Ask the organizers for more detail if needed.

We basically recommend to have the seminar at Lecture room on Tuesday. But of course it is not a strict rule. Depending on the visitor’s schedule, please find the best date. Note that Lecture room is fully booked from Wednesday to Friday by Graduate Student Affairs Section.
