Registration

Message to all APSS-APPOS 2021 International Attendees:

The Organizing Committee of APSS-APPOS 2021 has decided to ask all attendees located outside of Japan to only participate online (not onsite) for the upcoming APSS-APPOS 2021 meeting, since the number of COVID-19 cases in Kobe, Japan remains unpredictable, and the current policy of restricting entry of foreign visitors by the Government of Japan is so strict for us to welcome overseas attendees in-person. Thus, while disappointing, given the current pandemic circumstances and our wish to keep all attendees safe, please kindly understand our decision.

In order to participate in our hybrid meeting, you must complete your registration and payment.
