The 7th Annual RSCI Meeting in San Diego

Studio East and Executive Studio
ANdAZ San Diego
600 F Street
San Diego, CA 92101, USA

April 25th-28th, 2017

Our meeting was held in San Diego this year the convention center, at ANdAS San Diego. It was the Japanese members’ turn to help with the meeting preparation. On behalf of the members, I would like to thank Dr. Kazumi Ikeda and his secretary Kei Miyazaki for all their efforts in helping make this a successful meeting! This year, we had a special one-day program immediately before the meeting, with lectures from three instructors for the two-year Roth Philosophy course in Japan: Drs. Satoshi Adachi, Kazumi Ikeda, and Masaru Sakai. Their passionate talks seem to have resonated with the attendees, and we even later received requests from Europe for video recording of the course. It was a truly fruitful day, catching up with old friends, making new friends, and bonding over our shared passion.

The San Diego meeting that followed marked the 7th year for RSCI. The circle of discussion surrounding case files have grown internationally. Oral presentations, as always, were followed by ample discussion time. The two-way communication between the presenter and the attendees with the help of the Japanese and Spanish translators, makes our group a one of a kind, truly international meeting. Thank you so much to every single one of you for yet another successful meeting, and see you again soon in Washington DC!
