OPIC Action Plan on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 2020年02月20日

20 February 2020

OPTICS & PHOTONICS International Congress 2020 (OPIC 2020) will be held, as planned, during 20–24 April at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan.

Due to the COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus) outbreak, OPIC Organizing Committee is carefully monitoring the ongoing potential impact to our attendees. Japanese people are leading normal lives and there is no sense of urgency in Japan. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and the local governments are making every effort to isolate infected people, determine the route of infection, and reduce close physical contacts of the people.

We are fully committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide safe and healthy environment for attendees.

We will announce detailed information on OPIC2020 implementation by 20 March, 2020 at the OPIC Web site. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Yokohama!

Fumihiko Kannari, Chair, Organizing Committee
