Joint Science Meeting

The “Joint Science Meeting” is the central enabling activity of the partnership between the Tokyo Institute of technology and Stony Brook University as we pursue our common interests in science, engineering, technology, and especially the education and preparation of students. It is an opportunity for our faculty and students, as well as our external collaborators, to share their knowledge and passion, and to identify and develop new opportunities for collaboration. Participants from Tokyo Institute of Technology (TIT), Stony Brook University (SBU), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), the Northeast region of the United States and elsewhere in the country will come to SBU to participate in a 3-day workshop to discuss the common threads among the following topics:

  • Quantum computing
  • Physics: Small and Large Experiments
  • Materials Science Condensed matter/chemistry
  • HPC/Big data
  • Environmental science and/or engineering

The workshop will be held at the Wang Center at SBU. For a map of the campus, click here.
