Dear All,

First of all, we, the Organizing Committee of CIGRE-AORC Technical Meeting 2020, would like to express sincere appreciation for the submission of 123 papers in total.

The Committee has been working on the premise of holding the meeting in April as scheduled. However, due to the rapid spread of the new type of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, we have no choice but to decide the postponement of the meeting as follows:

New Dates:
8th (Sun) to 10th (Tue) November 2020

Welcome Reception: 8th November 2020
Technical and Administrative Council Meetings: 9th to 10th November 2020

11th (Wed) November 2020
Site Tour in Kanazawa
Kanazawa Bunka Hall (same as original)

1. Handling of full papers submitted
The Organizing Committee will promptly reconsider the processes, deadlines, etc. taking into account not only the corrections based on our comments but also the opportunity to update and withdrawal of submitted papers, and the handling of expected requests from those who have accepted their abstracts but have not submitted full papers. New processes and deadlines will be notified via e-mail and Official Website.

2. Registration and payment already processed
Applications that have already been registered through the registration system will be invalidated, and payment will be refunded once. The registration process for the next meeting will restart from the appropriate date.

3. Others
As the spread of the COVID-19 infection still remains unpredictable, we will proceed with careful attention to actions and decisions related to the 2020 Paris Session by the Paris Central Office or the Steering Committee, such as expansion of the early-bird registration deadline, cancellation/postponement of the Session, and so on.

The details of the next meeting will be announced on the Official Website, and important notices will be made by e-mail.
