Cancellation announces of the International Symposium on the Okhotsk Sea & Polar Oceans 2021 in Mombetsu

 Dear Sir
  I should inform bad news of the cancellation of Mombetsu Symposium 2021.
The International Symposium on the Okhotsk Sea & Polar Oceans 2021 (to be held at Mombetsu in February 21-24, 2021) in Mombetsu is cancelled in the situation of the rapidly increasing of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) infection in the world.
  However, the reviewed publication of OSPOR (Okhotsk Sea and Polar Oceans Research) Vol. 5 will be published on schedule in February, 2021, though its deadline was over already. Some of the programs for the citizen will be carried out by displaying panels, and the events for children will be carried out in each elementary school separately. 
  After one year, in 2022, the 36th International Symposium on the Okhotsk Sea & Polar Oceans 2022 will be held in the following schedule:
 

   The 36th International Symposium on the Okhotsk Sea & Polar Oceans 2022
      Period: February 20 (Sun) to 24 (Thu) in 2022
      Place: Mombetsu, Hokkaido, Japan      
         Note: The fixed schedules will be appeared on the Symposium web site until June, 2021.
    Deadlines of Submission (almost same with the previous symposiums):
           General Presentations: Short Summary; Beginnings of December, 2021
      Final Manuscript: Middle of January, 2022
            OSPOR Vol. 6 Articles for cold region technology and others; 
                                                    Camera-ready Manuscript (Max 6 pages): End of September, 2022

 
   We hope the COVID-19 infection would be settled until 2022, and we can meet with each other
  at Mombetsu in February, 2022.
   Sincerely yours,
      Chairman of Executive Committee of Symposium:
                 Shuhei Takahashi
