First of all, I would like to express my sincere sympathies to those who have got damages of the effect of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The ICS council has made a unanimous decision that the Symposium that had originally been delayed from summer of 2020 to this summer is being postponed again, this time to the summer of 2023, still at the original venue in Toyama, Japan. This is indeed difficult decision, but when we think about the world-wide pandemic situation of COVID-19, we cannot avoid this difficult decision.
Now the new dates of the Toyama International Carotenoid Symposium (ISC2023-Toayma) are
9 July (Sun) to 14 July (Fri), 2023.
We will be communicating specific information soon to those who have registered and planned to exhibit concerning the fees and finances for the conference. Our hope is that much of this can simply be kept in its current state and held for the 2023 date.
Especially, we do hope that sponsors of our meeting to keep finances to support the conference.
Finally, we do hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will be calmed down long before the ISC2023-Toyama. Everyone please continue to do what is needed to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Hideki Hashimoto – Symposium Chair of ISC2023-Toyama
