The Cancellation of the IATSS Forum Spring Batch (May to July 2020)

We regret to announce that the 63rd IATSS Forum, scheduled from May to July 2020, has been canceled for the following reasons.

  1. The number of COVID-19 infections in Japan still continues to increase at this moment, and it seems that this trend may continue for a while.
  2. Under these uncertain circumstances, we cannot guarantee a safe and healthy environment for participants and people concerned at the IATSS Forum.
  3. Travel to Japan may be restricted by the governments of respective countries.
  4. Upon the completion of the program in Japan, there is a risk of traveling restrictions back to respective countries from Japan. Even if participants are able to go back to their respective countries, they may be requested to engage in self-isolation for 14 days.

Voice before the participation

Hello from Thailand, My name is Tipanun Upanisakorn. I’m currently working at Land Development Department as a Soil Scientist. While I’m writing this massage I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I just cannot believe that I’m the one of participant in IATSS Forum 59th batch and represent Thailand as well. I am excited because I am going to meet with other participants from ASEAN who come from different work field. Sharing and learning with them would be amazing. Especially, Japan; the host country, I am so passionate learning about culture. Japan has a very strong culture and tradition. I am Thai and I grew up with Japanese cartoon. Can you imagine that? I wish I could use scientific knowledge or create a tool bringing science to people in daily life like Japanese cartoon. Two heads are better than one head! Working as a team would help me get closer to my dream.
However, as I mentioned before I am feeling nervous because I wanted to contribute something base on my knowledge and experience to our group as well. So, I hope I can give my best. I believe the program and activities you provided definitely level up our skill and knowledge to achieve our goals. Looking forward to meet you all in Suzuka.
