Thank you for using DICE and MatNavi service.

In principle, MatNavi of DICE service provides services to individuals belonging to organizations, and we utilize the user identification based on the domain of e-mail address.
But as a temporary measure, MatNavi service has been available to those who identify themselves with passport. However, we are going to end this temporary solution from the following dates.

  • End of application for MatNavi service with passport-based DICE account: January 31, 2024 [Application has been closed.]
  • End of service for MatNavi user with passport-based DICE account: March 29, 2024
  • Deletion of information on users with passport-based DICE accounts: March 29, 2024
Shift to your identity verification with mail domain name identification
If you wish to use MatNavi service, it is necessary to switch to the identity verification based on the e-mail address domain name following the procedure described next.
Notice: Your DICE account will be deleted if you don't switch your user verification method by the date mentioned above.

(1)Please get a DICE account with email domain name identification. The domain name must be the one you are using with email in your organization. (for every users.)
If you have registered a DICE account using an e-mail address that you are handling in your organization, you can skip this step.
(2) Please do the registration of the domain name of your email address with us. (The application must be submitted by domain administrator of your email address.)
When (2) is completed, the transition of your personal identification will be completed automatically.

Your DICE account will be deleted if you don't switch your account by the date mentioned above. Please keep in mind.

Due to the increasing number of exhaustive data extractions (web scraping, etc.) from free email addresses of unknown affiliation even though we prohibit, we had no choice but to modify user verification of registration procedures.
In order to protect our data assets, we must unavoidably adopt the new method.
We would like any user to act immediately, then again it will be possible to link with DICE as well as with other DICE services.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.
