About face-to-face or virtual meeting

MRM2021 will take place as a face-to-face meeting, and all events will be held at the venue in Yokohama. Oral presentation will be organized in the Hybrid system. Therefore, authors who will deliver an oral presentation will be asked to deliver in-person presentations of the work if you can travel to the venue. Otherwise, authors can present online if they cannot travel in December due to COVID-19.

On the other hand, poster presentations will be organized in both real and online systems. Authors who can come to the venue will be asked to deliver in-person presentations of the work at the real poster slot. If authors cannot travel to the venue, they can present online at a different slot from the real poster presentation. The real poster presenters will be asked to present twice at the venue and virtual poster presentations according to the principle of this meeting that all meeting attendees will be able to participate in the meeting in-person and online.
