French Research Day in Japan 2019 (J·FR 2019)*

Sciencescope, the organization for french-speaking researchers and student in Japan, the French Embassy in Japan, CNRS – Tokyo Office North Asia, and the Institut français de Recherche sur le Japon (MFJ, UMIFRE 19, MEAE-CNRS) are organizing the 23rd French Research Day in Japan (Journée Francophone de la Recherche – J·FR 2019).

J·FR 2019 is part of the celebration in Japan of the 80th anniversary of CNRS.

J·FR 2019 is open and free to access to everyone (free-of charge) and the program will be built on several research presentation, posters, and invited keynotes for celebrating the 80th anniversary of CNRS.

Since 1997, the French Research Day is gathering yearly the community of researchers and students in Japan from all disciplines and citizenships. This event intends to promote research discussions among researchers, students, engineers, officials, company representatives or any interested person and to present their research activities in Japan.

You are kindly invited to submit your research work or to register as an attendee to participate to J·FR 2019.

The registration is free and open to all, but it is mandatory and can be made online through the J·FR 2019 form at the end of this page until:

  • *Monday, September 16th, 2019* (EXTENDED DEADLINE) Monday, September 09th 2019 (contributions)
  • Tuesday, October 1st 2019 (attendees)

The main objectives of J·FR 2019 are to create a social event about Research in any fields (Sciences, Applied Sciences, SHS, etc) and Technologies, and to enforce discussions among the audience.
This is an opportunity for all actors in research and development in Japan (companies, researchers, students, institutional, etc.), to meet community of French-speaking scientist in order to initiate discussions, future projects or collaborations.

Call for communications

J·FR 2019 offers three main kinds of contributions:

  1. presentation ( 20min including questions);
  2. poster (A0 size, portrait);
  3. flash-talk (short presentation – 5min)

When submitting a contribution, it is possible to choose a type of contributions (presentation, poster or flash-talk). The Organizing Committee will therefore select the contributions to be presented as presentations or posters according to research topics. J·FR 2019 could also propose flash talks for some presentation proposals, depending on topics and progress of work (preliminary research work, etc.). An initial choice could therefore be changed from a presentation to a poster or flash-talk, but not the opposite.

For flash-talks, the authors *may* also add a poster to their presentation for more information (upon own preferences).

Long format (optional)
Since 2018, we also offer contributors to publish an extended version of their presentation on a dedicated webpage of Sciencescope website (20,000 characters maximum including references).


The main language at J·FR 2019 for presentations and discussions is French.
Research Material such as presentation slides or printed posters can however be written in French or in English.

For non-native speakers or non-fluent in French that are interested by presenting at J·FR 2019, it is still possible to present your research work in English upon requests to the Organizing Committee and its approval. Indeed, the rationale is that J·FR 2019 is also aiming to welcome french-speaking Researchers whatever their level in French, or Researchers that have some background with French Research (e.g., those having collaborations with French Institutions -past/present/future-, or having received (or are interested by) Grants or Scholarships from France (BGF, ANR, etc.)

The Organizing Committee is encouraging Researchers, whose level in French is sufficient enough, to prefer French language for submitting documents (Research Summary, Biography) and for their talk.
