The third International Student Workshop, sponsored by the NAIST Global COE Program, was held at I&I Land in Shijonawate from November 8 to 11, 2009. A total of 34 graduate students (10 from the University of California, Davis, 10 from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and 14 from the Graduate School of Biological Sciences, NAIST) participated in the Workshop. Students presented their studies in English and eagerly discussed each otherfs research results. The three groups interacted strongly with each other, both academically and culturally. Students from the US, China, and Japan were mixed together, sleeping in Japanese-style rooms in groups of six or seven, eating at the same table, and bathing together in large public baths. During these four days in a closed environment, the students were able to establish intimate and friendly relationships and to enjoy stimulating cultural exchanges.
