    This conference focuses on Mixed Methods Research (MMR), which is a hybrid of quantitative and qualitative research approaches. MMR is rapidly spreading in practical research fields such as medical care, nursing, and education. 
    This is the 4th Asian Regional Conference of the Mixed Methods International Research Association (MMIRA), and the 7th Annual Conference of the Japan Society for Mixed Methods Research (JSMMR). It aims at sharing the knowledge required to develop, design, and construct MMR among the researchers and practitioners not only in Japan but also in Asian regions.
    Distinguished speakers in the field of MMR will be invited to deliver keynote speeches, workshops, and presentations. We encourage researchers and practitioners in a variety of fields to join this conference!
