We have been carefully monitoring news and updates from the Japanese government on coronavirus, and tried our best to make the conference happen. However, following the latest recommendations from the government, OIST just announced that we should suspend all public events, including workshops and conferences, until at least April 29.

As a result I decided to cancel the ECogS conference this year. Financial restrictions unfortunately prevent us from postponing this conference to a later date.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this difficult decision. It would be fantastic if we could host you here at OIST on some other occasion, and we thank you for always providing us with your kind support during these difficult times.
