Postponing Interfinish 2020 for the COVID-19 pandemic

March 12, 2020

Dear colleagues,

  WHO announced the coronavirus disease COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, 2020. More than 100 countries, including Japan, China, Korea, and Italy, face COVID-19. Japanese organization and IUFS committees determined to postpone Interfinish 2020. The new date is September 6 to 8, 2021. We will update the further information on the new dates for abstract submission opening, abstract submission due, notification for acceptance, early registration, VISA documents application, exhibition registration, and partnership registration.
  We hope we govern this pandemic by the cooperation of all countries and all peoples and will be able to assemble in Interfinish under a peaceful environment.
