Important Announcements

Dear all concerned of NICOGRAPH International 2020,

After careful consideration on the epidemic of COVID-19, we have decided to change the venue to Tokyo University of Technology, Hachioji Campus, and to make it possible to participate online without coming to the venue. The session of the conference will not be changed. 

Many events around the world have been cancelled or postponed, and this situation is unacceptable for an international conference, where many participants may be at risk upon their return. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to see you at Tokyo University of Technology, Hachioji Campus or online in June 2020. 

23th March, 2020 

Tsukasa Kikuchi , Conference Chairman, (Tokyo University of Technology)
