Notice regarding the postponement of the 3rd&4th Joint Sapporo Conference for Palliative and Supportive Care in Cancer (SCPSC)

The 3rd & 4th Joint SCPSC was scheduled to be held for 3 days from July 21, 2022; however, due to the current global situation, we are sorry to inform you of its postponement.
The COVID-19 pandemic, which was a great concern, is now falling worldwide, and we were preparing to issue speakers and participants with an update on the conditions for admission to Japan (the need for a 3rd vaccination and an invitation from the secretariat) and arrange flights when Russia began its invasion of Ukraine.
We are now afraid that the invasion will expand to involve the rest of the world, with many predicting the current situation may lead to World War III and endanger the world.
In such a situation, the executive committee has decided to postpone the conference until the spring of 2023 (next year) after conferring with several senior advisory committee members. Thank you for your understanding in relation to the difficulties facing the executive committee.
We will inform you of a new schedule as soon as possible, and would like to preserve the contents of the program as currently set. In addition, we will inform you regarding the handling of those already registered to participate.
We are well aware of your busy schedule, but would appreciate your joining the conference after adjusting your plans.
