Our Message

We convey our deepest condolences to the victims who have lost friends and family in the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake. We hope for their smooth recovery and resume for their peaceful live.

We tell the facts concerning the relationship between the earthquake and the conference. Kumamoto is located in Kyushu Island and Kobe in Mainland (Honshu). The distance between them is ca. 470km. No damages are reported in Kobe and Kansai Area. So the conference will be held as planned.
