BLS8 welcomes the participation of those researchers with children. Due to logistical constraints, we cannot provide ‘creche’ at the venue, but we plan to prepare sufficient space for care (e.g., changing, nursing etc.). Many babysitting service providers in Tokyo allow communications in English, and we ask interested participants to contact directly to the companies. Below is the contact information (to be updated):
