Recent Research and Educational Activities in BMS

Updated on 2015 November 4

To know the results of our recent studies, you can see the "special issues" in the Society journal, the titles of "special seminars" and "special sessions", the themes of the Symposium of Behaviormetrics, and others. One characteristic is that the authors and presenters include a number of those who are affiliated with companies in addition to those who are affiliated with universities.

Themes of Spring Camp-style Seminar

Since 1998, this seminar has been held annually in March to learn various behaviormetric methods in a camp style. Along with leading speakers who are involved in the latest metric methods and the applications to give lectures, the question and answer section is actively conducted in a seminar style, which is well-received.

Study Group Meeting

To vitalize research activities, the Society established study group meetings and subsidized the activities. The study group meetings include a "Regional Group" having the main purpose of promoting and disseminating studies in a specific region and a "Study Group" with the aim of achieving research results with a high degree of originality.

The following groups were active in 2013.
