Celebration of Life for Osamu Fujimura (Tokyo, 29 August 1927 – Waimea, Hawaii, 13 March 2017)

We want to celebrate the memory of Osamu. Also we want to set aside this time to encourage one another, young researchers as well as older researchers, to continue exploring the many aspects of speech science, just as Osamu encouraged so many of us.

Please come join us in a Celebration of Life for Professor Osamu Fujimura. All are invited to come, those who personally knew Professor Fujimura and those who have only heard about him or would like to know more!
Note: After 2:00 PM, the automatic door will be closed, but you can still enter by calling the number displayed on the front door.
