International Conference Manual

This manual is intended to assist faculty and staff members who wish to organize and conduct international conferences. The manual focuses mainly on the Tokyo Tech procedures that must be completed by event organizers. It answers:


Tokyo Tech Research Repository (T2R2)

T2R2 is a system for storage and access to research papers, books, patents, and other works written and registered by researchers of Tokyo Tech. Equipped with a data input support function for registering publications with ease, T2R2 can also be used for managing research achievements. Based on their registered data, users can generate a list of their research achievements for Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research application and reports. The accumulated data on T2R2 will be open to external organizations such as Google and National Institute of Informatics, further increasing the visibility of Tokyo Tech research.


STAR Search

STAR Search is a system which allows for comprehensive searching of information on researchers at Tokyo Tech. Content includes profiles, research results, education activities and social activities. STAR Search can be accessed from all over the world as long as the user can access the Internet. By disseminating information through STAR Search, researchers can expand their networks in academia and industry, gain increased recognition for their publications, and present their abilities as a researcher.



The Institute Library owns a collection of around 800,000 works between its Ookayama and Suzukakedai libraries and offers access to around 41,000 electronic journals and books for devices connected to the campus network. By using the interlibrary loan service, users can access books and other materials the library at your affiliated campus does not own. The Institute Library also subscribes to databases useful for literature searching. You can get support from the library staff members either from the information desk at each of the libraries or through the inquiry form on the Institute Library website.


Gender Equality Section

The Gender Equality Section at Tokyo Tech works to support Institute members by creating an environment in which faculty, staff and students can achieve their full potential in an environment of mutual respect, regardless of gender. In order to help faculty and staff balance their responsibilities at work and at home, the section provides various support programs such as Tokyo Tech Babysitting Support Service and Assistant Staffing Program.
