**Mathematical Society of Japan International Research Institute**was inaugurated in 1993 and one or two were held most years until 2006 when its scope was expanded and it was renamed the

**Mathematical Society of Japan Seasonal Institute**and held annually. A topic for each Institute is chosen and mathematicians are invited from throughout the world. The aim is that Asian mathematicians and promising young Asian students are given the opportunity to interact with world-leading exerts in their field.
