The Record of Electrical and Communication Engineering
Conversazione Tohoku University

This journal aims at providing an opportunity to publish research results of the Institute as well as the result of the Graduate Schools of Engineering, Information Sciences, Biomedical Engineering. Since the journal also aims at publishing general research activities of the Institute and of the Graduate Schools such as records of the final lectures of retiring professors, records of the Institute Symposium, and reviews.
The name of the Journal `Conversazione´ is attributable to the `Tuesday Conversazione´ at the Department of Electrical Engineering, which had been held once a week on Tuesday since around 1920. Minutes of the meetings had been distributed to researchers outside of the University via various routes and therefore some of them had been referred to as `Records of Tuesday Electrical Engineering Conversazione Tohoku University´ with the result that they came to be treated as official publications. Though the meeting was once interrupted by World War Two, it was restarted in 1947. In 1952, the publication of the records was succeeded by the Institute and the records have been published as periodicals, two times a year recently, since No. 1 Vol. 21 was published in July, 1952.
