hrs at allbsd.org
Wed Feb 26 00:53:56 JST 2020
Dear AsiaBSDCon 2020 attendees (and past attendees):
As you probably noticed, coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak is
becoming serious in Asian region and Japan is also suffering from it
As of February 24, 32 patients were found in Tokyo (0.00023% of the
total population in the area). Several countries issued travel
alerts, and events in February or early March were cancelled. Most
of flights via China mainland are now suspended.
At this moment, the organizing team plans to hold AsiaBSDCon as
announced because this situation will not last for a long time.
However, it can happen/already happened that the number of local and
Asian attendees is reduced because some local companies forbid
attending this kind of events in March, or speakers from overseas
cannot come to Japan due to the travel alerts from their local
governments or companies.
Given the situation, we will accept cancellation of your registration
with 50% cancel fee until March 1st. Please contact by using the
If the situation gets worse and Japense (or foreign) government
issues strict travel ban, there is still possibility to cancel the
conference. I will make an announcement with the up-to-date
information on March 2nd again by email.
