Message from The ISMICT 2020 Organizing Committee

Dear ISMICT 2020 authors and attendees,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic over the world, we planned to have a combined face-to-face and virtual conference from the 20th to 22nd May 2020, but on the 7th of May 2020, the Government decided to extend emergency declaration to ask people to quarantine themselves until the end of May. We knew that the situation in Nara was not so severe as compared to other areas in Japan, but unfortunately, the Prefecture decided to follow the Government decision. Therefore, Nara Kasugano International Forum, which is the ISMICT 2020 conference venue, was scheduled to be closed until the end of May 2020. This means that we finally lost the possibility of welcoming you to the face-to-face conference in Nara. Now, we shifted to a fully virtual conference.

There is no change in the conference program from the 20th to 22nd May 2020. Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST) will host the virtual conference, and The ISMICT 2020 Technical Program Committee will inform of you how to participate in the conference with meeting ID and password soon.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
