Important Notice

Dear AVEC community,
dear friends and colleagues worldwide,

We would like to express our sincere thanks to your contribution to AVEC’20.

We all are facing an extremely serious situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, and there are lots of influence on all our private and professional lives. Therefore, AVEC Board and AVEC’20 organizing committee have decided to postpone AVEC’20 as below:

  • ・AVEC’20 symposium postponed to the year 2022 (avoiding conflict with IAVSD symposium)
  • ・The conference venue, concept and others are kept the same as AVEC’20

We will inform you the detailed schedule of 2022 separately. Among such concern, the first priority of our activities is your health and safety. To our sponsors, exhibition planning staff, technical visit organizing teams, all participants as well as relevant organizations, we apologize for any inconvenience that may cause. And we appreciate your understanding.

We have been preparing for AVEC’20 under the theme of “developing new ideas based on learning from the past”. We are grateful for your cooperation and we are going to strengthen this theme again in 2022. As similar to the abovementioned concept, it is very important to carefully handle the problem of COVID-19 around the world, so that we will realize an affluent society in the future.

Up to now in the history, human beings were overcoming several global-scale crisis such as viruses, plagues and an economic crisis by our intelligence, a number of innovative studies and challenge of technical development. We strongly believe that we will be able to overcome such crisis by gathering our wisdom and effort, and then start to step up again into the new prosperous future.

Thank you very much for your understanding that we take a plenty of time to make a tough decision of postponing the event. We are going to serve for the attractive and fruitful conference at Kanagawa Institute of Technology 2 years later.

We look forward to seeing you again at AVEC’22.

Best wishes to all AVEC community members and stay healthy always,

April 3rd. 2020.
AVEC’20 General Chair
Prof. Hideo Inoue
