The 58th Annual Meeting of Carcinological Society of Japan (CSJ)

The 58th Annual Meeting of Carcinological Society of Japan (CSJ)

To whom it may concern,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our country is pursuing measures against possible second wave of COVID-19 spread. A number of academic societies have therefore decided to cancel their meetings and conferences scheduled in this autumn.

The board of Carcinological Society of Japan (CSJ) discussed on this matter and has made the difficult decision to cancel its face-to-face annual meeting. Instead, an online meeting for student presentations will be held as notified below. Further detailed information will be released through our society website.
