Ask for your registration (Invitation to be a member)

Inter-University Research Institute Corporation, Research Organization of Information and Systems(ROIS) has been developing the plan to publish the list of Women Researchers. Now we are able to release the List of Women Researchers “Challenging Women Researchers in Japan”.
This list of Women Researchers is based on Reserchmap which Prof. Noriko Arai of National Institute of Informatics played a central role in its development. We made the list limited to women researchers' data (both of English and Japanese) from the Researchmap, and released it on the web site. This search engine makes it possible to realize Visualization for Woman Researchers. 
In addition, having the cooperation of JST, we establish the gender box on Researchmap in order to make it easier to collect women researchers' data. Using the automatic classification according to research fields, it shows the list of women researchers who allow us to release her research data with her gender. Which enable us to release and share these research data given by “Women Researchers in every field, and is the first event . 
In years to come, this list may generate many opportunities such as the expansion of collaborative research beyond their specialized fields, or the chance to be a mentor for young generation. Transmitting these information of women researchers who play active role in every field toward the rest of the world, and then making the best use of their potential capability, we hope that they can be the one who implement collaborative research beyond the field with competent researchers in the world and who play active role not only in Japan but also all over the world. We are strongly looking forward to having a lot of registration from all of you.
