Notice of Postponement Dates for Techno-Ocean 2020
Venue：Kobe Convention Center
Our Executive Committee has been diligently planning towards Techno-Ocean 2020. However, inevitably, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the need to ensure participant health and safety, the event has been postponed. Now,in consultation with the Techno Ocean Network Board of Directors, we have selected the new dates, namely;
December 9th ~ 11th, 2021 (Thursday ~ Saturday).
The Organizers will continue preparations towards these dates.
Although there is still no clear projection as to when COVID-19 infections will subside to safe or zero levels, it is nevertheless important to have this future date fixed so that we can plan in the present. The selected dates are intended to allow sufficient time for everyone to adjust and re-schedule. We ask for your understanding.
With the exception of the date revision, we intend to hold the event in its existing format as far as possible and without major changes to contents already planned. These will be reviewed at the soonest and, when confirmed, all details will be posted on the homepage. And, of course, our Committee will continue to monitor the status of the pandemic. In the meantime, we will proceed with preparations, trusting – as ever – in the generous and loyal cooperation of our valued supporters and participants.
So, we look forward to seeing you all in Kobe, Japan in December 2021. By then we hope and pray that this serious threat to public health will be sufficiently behind us.
We appreciate your continued understanding and cooperation.
