Venue/City info

Dear friends,

We will inform you some news.

ICoMST2022 will be held on schedule, August 22-25.

But we decided to conduct ICoMST2022 online due to COVID-19 infection spreading over the world.
It is really unfortunate that we will not provide you hospitality, Omotenashi, in Japan.

We will call for ePoster presentations, because we would like to allow time for peer-review and editing of the abstract book. The submission site will be opened in March on schedule.

Registration will be opened in April.

We will inform the latest information on this web site and SNS (Facebook and Twitter). Please check them.

Please join ICoMST2022.

Best regards,

Organizing Committee Chair, Ryoichi Sakata
