We have focused on our objective to find the best way to bring our community safely together for a successful symposium. However, considering the current situation of the spread of the new coronavirus, it has become clear a face-to-face symposium in May 2021 will not be possible. Considering our safety as the most important thing,we decided to postpone the 18JKSC to November 23-25, 2021.

Upon the postponement of the symposium,the deadline for abstract submission is extended to July 31st, 2021, and we will continue to invite you to join us.

Because we are anxious about the suspension of international friendship exchange between Korea and Japan, we will not postpone the 18JKSC symposium again. Although we schedule to have a face-to-face symposium in November, there is a possibility that the symposium in November will be held through a virtual system due to the unpredictable situation.We will decide the format (face-to-face or virtual) in early August, and notify the community members via e-mail and website.

For the participants who have already sent abstracts, the submitted abstracts will be kept as they are. In case you need to make modification on your availability, abstract, presentation style, please send an E-mail to the 18JKSC secretary office.

Due to such sensitive situation, please make your own judgment and watch the situation carefully when arranging hotel and planes. We recommend the participants to arrange hotel and planes after the final meeting form/schedule is decided. The updated information will be announced through this website when available.

We appreciate your understanding in this sensitive matter.
