Post-congress Message

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the SHSR and the JSCHR, we thank all of you for participating in the 10th WCHR at the Kyoto ICC. Thanks to your attendance and many fine contributions, the success of this meeting far exceeded our expectations; because we hadn’t counted on so many of our colleagues coming, we ran short of conference bags and lunch boxes. For this we sincerely apologize! The conference was also very productive in that some 380 abstracts were submitted for this conference and each room was filled with an eager audience during the scientific sessions, which were followed by many an intense discussion.

We hope that you enjoyed the various social events that we prepared for you and had the opportunity to sample some Japanese food and culture during your stay in Kyoto. Above all, we hope that you were able to deepen your ties with your colleagues from the world over.

We trust that you have now all returned home safely with many lovely memories of your experiences in Japan. We will inform the pre-registered guests later by e-mail about how to download the official photographs of the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you at the next WCHR meeting in Barcelona in April 2019. Until then, our best wishes to everyone for a productive and happy time ahead.

Best regards,
