Update for Workshop Organizers, Guests and Visitors to OIST

In response to national guidelines on the COVID-19 coronavirus issued on Feb 26, 2020, the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) is now adopting the following measures:

International conferences and workshops organized by OIST will be canceled or postponed until April 29 and events beyond that date are under review. In addition, external organizers planning to use our facilities during this period are strongly encouraged to reconsider whether to proceed with their event in light of the request from the Japanese government.
