We cordially invite you to attend the 82nd annual meeting of the Meteoritical Society, which will take place 7th-12th of July in 2019 in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. It will be held at the Hokkaido University conference hall.
Hokkaido University was originally founded in 1876 as Sapporo Agricultural College. It subsequently developed into the Agricultural College of Tohoku Imperial University, Hokkaido Imperial University and then Hokkaido University under Japan's new school educational system, forming the background of the institution as it exists today. Over its history of more than 140 years, Hokkaido University has been upholding a particular set of educational and research principles referred to as the Frontier Spirit, Global Perspectives, All-round Education, and Practical Learning, and has endeavored to implement them. The principles have their origins in ideals proposed by Dr. William S. Clark (the first Vice President of Sapporo Agricultural College) as lofty ambition, equality and freedom, the development of a spirit of independence and an autonomous identity, and the development of field-oriented applied skills.
