The 13th ICPS Conference - Japan has been postponed one year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We now plan to hold the conference in May 2021. However, we may need to reconsider the date depending on future world-wide medical advice.
If the conference can be held in May 2021, the location will be Himeji, Japan, and the program, including the botanic garden tour and the field trips, will be almost the same as planned for 2020. We will try to change the venue from Biz Space to the Himeji Civic Hall, which is within walking distance of Himeji station and is much more appropriate for the international conference. Alternatively, “I-Messae” Auditorium in front of Himeji Castle may be used.
We will keep everyone updated and hope to see many researchers and enthusiasts of carnivorous plants in Himeji, Japan, in May 2021.
