Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation 2020 in Yokohama, Japan

SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Yokohama

We are aware many in the community are concerned about the status of SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Yokohama, Japan, scheduled for 14 - 19 June 2020. We understand the difficulty everyone is having to determine how to proceed in times of such uncertainty.

SPIE is closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare. We are actively seeking feedback from our conference leadership and presenters as well as the Pacifico Yokohama Convention Center to determine how best to proceed. All authors will be receiving an email in the next few days to help us gather information on possible alternatives.

We plan on making an announcement on the status of SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Yokohama by 15 April 2020.
