STF Sendai 2022 opens to optional virtual participation!
In response to considering the possible COVID-19 travel restrictions, the Organizing Committee has decided to allow optional online participation as well as an in-person meeting. Participants will be asked to select their participation format, either in-person or online, during registration. We hope this in-person/online hybrid format would allow our friends and colleagues to participate with minimal interference from the effect of the pandemic.
We’re excited to announce the plenary speakers who will be presenting at STF 2022 in Sendai.
