[3] WWW Links on IISEE website has been renewed

Last July we asked to let us know your organization's website, if it was
possible to link with ours. In response to our request, many ex-participants
informed us their websites. We renewed this page as soon as we received new
information and the renewal was finished. We greatly appreciate your
cooperation.
Now we are asking again to visit http://iisee.kenken.go.jp/?p=links.
If you can add your organization in this page, please inform us the URL.
