The 11th Advanced Mechanism Control Symposium and the 11th YNOYT Lab Reunion

Date: 2/17-18/2012 (Fri.-Sat.)
Location:The University of Tokyo Hongo Campus, Tokyo Japan Engineering 2 Building and the Gotenshita Memorial Arena

The 11th Advanced Mechanism Control Symposium and the 11th YNOYT Lab Reunion are organized, for the first time, with the Robotics Laboratory of Seoul National University. The first joint robotics workshop between Robotics, Dynamics, and Control Laboratory (Prof. Y. Nakamura and Prof. W. Takano) of the University of Tokyo and Robotics Laboratory (Prof. F.C. Park) of Seoul National University was planned to exchange the most updated research results in the informal and friendly style to stimulate discussions of all the participants, in particular, of students of the both universities. The whole program welcomes the members of the both laboratories and the alumni of the laboratory of the University of Tokyo. All the participants are requested to sign NDA. The program includes the sports workshop for the participants at the Gotenshita Gymnasium of the University of Tokyo on February 17th and the full-day technical workshop on February 18th. The banquet and the YNOYT lab reunion is on February 18th at Brasserie Paul Bocuse le Musee, inside the National Art Center, Tokyo.

Arrangement of accounts for alumni and alumnae

Dear alumni & alumnae,

At present, we are planning to tidy accounts that alumni and alumnae used.
Following is keynote:
1. As a general rule, all the accounts and e-mails that alumni and alumnae used are removed.
2. If you would like us to preserve e-mails or accounts, please send us e-mail to admin@(ynl domain) until 30th November.
3. We can configure as e-mails that are sent to your account are forwarded to a e-mail address even though your account is removed.
If you want us to configure that setup, please send us e-mail to admin@(ynl domain) until 30th November.
4. Until one year passes since you graduated, we preserve your e-mails and account.
After that, we will remove those.

Sincerely yours,
