[Important Notice] Call for Papers Submission Period and How to Present General Abstracts (April 6)

Call for Papers
The deadline for submissions has been extended to April 8 at noon JST.
We will call for late-breaking abstracts thereafter during the period below:
Submission period: April 22 at noon JST – May 14 at noon JST

Please note that late-breaking abstracts will be called for virtual poster presentations only.
If you wish to present your work on-site in Kobe, please be sure to submit an abstract before April 8.

How to Present your Abstract
Valuing in-person oral presentations and discussions of general abstracts, we have decided that oral presentations should be delivered only on-site in Kobe.
It is difficult for international travelers to enter Japan to participate in the meeting on-site as we have previously indicated, overseas researchers are asked to opt for poster presentations, which can be made remotely.
How to make remote poster presentations and discussions (use of slides, live streaming, etc.) will be considered later.
We will prepare a platform where presenters and audience will be able to fully engage in discussions whether the presentation type is oral or poster.
Details will be announced once they are determined.
