As the COVID-19 situation is still affecting global travel, the IRG52 annual scientific conference planned for Numazu, Japan will not take place in person this year. For the second year in a row we will certainly miss the ambient atmosphere of friendliness, friendship, scientific communication and networking. The IRG EC is working with the Japan Local Organizing Committee on future options for Japan to organize the IRG meeting in the coming years since they could not do so this year. When this is resolved we will advise the IRG membership.
In lieu of the canceled IRG52 meeting we will meet online, and we are excited to be hosting another webinar building on the successes of the previous two webinars. The IRG52 Webinar will take place during November 1-2.
The IRG52 Webinar Programme can be found at this link. Note that the PDF version of the programme is available at the link at the bottom of the HTML programme webpage.
