(Note: This is a narration of my recent trip to Japan, from 7/17/07 to 7/30/07)

Day 4. July 20, 2007. Friday.

Today is the opening day of the 26th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Association for Medical Imaging Technology (JAMIT 2007). From AIST Guest House (Sakura-san) we transferred to the Tsukuba International Congress Center (and later, we checked in at Hotel Okura which is just adjacent to the International Congress Center). My talks were scheduled in the session C2 (Grid) from 10:40 - 11:20 a.m. This is an English session (Note: not all sessions were in English. Many sessions were in Japanese.)

The titles of my research paper presentations are: (1) Image Segmentation of Digital Mammogram Using the Watershed Algorithm for Cancer Detection, and (2) Computer-Aided Retrieval of Knee Menisci Magnetic Resonance Images Using Latent Semantic Indexing.

In the afternoon, I participated in the International Symposium on Grid Computing, where my colleagues in the ONCO-MEDIA project ( ) were the speakers.

In the evening I met my batchmate from Philippine Science High School ( PSHS Class of 1977 ), Irene Mendoza-Abe who lives in Tskukuba together with her Japanese husband and two kids. We had dinner in a restaurant near the hotel.
