Takigawa Memorial Hall, Kobe University

This is a meeting of researchers and students in Japan who are working in various fields of mathematics related to hypergeometric functions and hypergeometric equations. This workshop is going to be held every year on the first week of December. The main idea of this workshop is to activate communication among researchers who are interested in the same subject, but come from different research fields.
