Identification Meeting

 For the first time, we will have an online identification meeting. If you would like to have a specimen identified, please prepare a photo or drawing and share it on ZOOM. Experts from the society will be available to give advice on identification. Until now, it has been a one-to-one correspondence between the expert and the person to be identified, but we hope that the identification process will be seen by many people and that a lot of information will be shared. We ask that you use your own judgment when presenting items that require confidentiality.

Applications for Research Presentations

 Members who wish to do an oral research presentation during the conference should follow the instructions on the website and complete the conference registration and submit abstracts by November 6. Due to the process for preparation of abstracts, we ask that the deadline be strictly observed.

 A separate manual will be prepared for presentations shared using ZOOM. To ensure smooth operation of the conference, please make sure to check how to use ZOOM and the telegraphic status of your presentation during the preview on the previous day, December 3 (pm 1 to 11). The content of your presentation will be transmitted to the participants of the previous conference through ZOOM. The conference secretariat does not permit filming or recording of presentations, but it is impossible for the secretariat to regulate presentations that include content that may require confidentiality. Please decide the content of your presentation at your own risk.
