ICGST2023 Lectures and Poster Sessions

ICGST2023 Lectures and Poster Sessions Participants from Shizuoka University posing with Professor Hesham, the chairperson

A total of 19 individuals from Shizuoka University, including 8 faculty members and 11 students, participated in the event. It was the first time in a while for such a large group from the university to travel abroad for an event, and despite the natural tension that comes with large group travel. Fortunately, there were no significant issues, and everyone returned safely.

The lectures covered cutting-edge topics in green science and technology, drawing considerable interest and numerous questions from the audience. Despite the limited time, there was an effective sharing of knowledge.

In the poster sessions, many students experienced their first face-to-face international sessions, and while language barriers were evident, the interaction with researchers from various countries led to the discovery of new challenges and valuable insights for future research.
