The executive committee of the 22nd Spring Conference regrets to announce that. in view of the current surge of Covid-19 cases in Japan and the announcement and extension of the State of Emergency by the central and local governments, the conference is going to be totally ON LINE by Zoom. It is inevitable to reduce the risk of infection by making it ON LINE, as JASID is aiming to become part of the global solution, not part of the global problem.
The basic concept as well as the program will not be changed, except some minor changes in the detail of the program. The program is schedule to be released to the participants around 17th of May.
The executive committee will continue to do our best to make the conference highly valuable event to you. Your kind understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.
