An essential role of the Biophysical Society of Japan (BSJ) is to be a place for academic exchanges among members. However, there is often not enough time for a thorough discussion due to time constraints inherent to the annual meeting. In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person interaction itself has become difficult.
Furthermore, the BSJ has been making reforms that has proven inconvenient and painful for our society members, such as abolishing the booklet of the journal "SEIBUTSU BUTSURI" and raising membership fees. It is thus becoming ever more important to think about the merits of being an academic member.
In light of the above circumstances, the committee members of the BSJ have decided to establish the “subgroup" support system. The aim is to further enliven the activities of the BSJ by enabling thorough discussion through support of small- to medium-sized group activities and meetings, including those held online (up to 50,000 yen per meeting). Candidate meetings and activities include those that i) promote deep discussion on individual specialties (specialty groups), ii) promote the emergence of new academic fields (new academic field groups), or iii) promote the exchange of research ideas by young researchers who will lead the next generation (young researcher groups). Please refer to the support system regulations for details. We look forward to your applications (deadline: March 31, 2022 (Wednesday), up to 20 applications will be accepted).
