Message from Program Committee
We would like to ask you to make two considerations for your session proposal. The first
one is to consider proposing an interdisciplinary session. The topics in the
Earth and Planetary Sciences are intricately connected in various
fields, and there must be still many new seeds of research in boundary
and interdisciplinary fields. The second is to continue the JpGU
theme of “For a Borderless World of Geoscience.” In order to provide
a forum for interactive discussion with all participants, we would
appreciate your continued support for the proposals in the English

#3. 2021 JpGU Fellowship Program
