Dear UCARE Conference participants,

Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, the organizing committee wants to issue the following statement:

The UCARE Meeting will continue to be a hybrid event with sessions to take place both on-site in Hiroshima, Japan and online.

Participants who will be able to and want to join the conference on-site are more than welcome to do so. We know that this might be difficult for some of us and may be connected to a lengthy quarantine process.

We encourage those of you who are not traveling to Japan but who can and want to come together in local UCARE Conference meetings, to attend the conference together in small viewing groups. Please make sure that the health and safety requirements are met.

We are looking forward to seeing you – whether on-site or online.
