4 September 2023: News from the WVCC2024 in Tokyo

Dear All,

The deadline for oral and poster presentations for WVCC2024 was August31, and 83 abstracts were submitted.
Of these, more than half were submitted from Japan, giving the impression that there were few submissions from Europe, the U.S., and
other foreign countries.
Our committee members said that since we are holding an international conference, we expect submissions from the U.S., Europe, Brazil,
Mexico, and other countries.

We have decided to extend the deadline by two weeks. Therefor, the deadline for submissions has been
extended to Sunday, September 17th (Japan time).

Thank you for your cooperation.
