The 17th Annual Meeting of the STS forum goes Live online
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, STS forum has decided to hold this year's 17th Annual Meeting Live ONLINE from a base studio in Kyoto. We will surely miss the scenes of face-to-face networking at the Kyoto International Conference Center this year, but we will do our best to offer a very stimulating, lively and unique platform in a virtual setting.
Taking into account different time zones around the world, we had to make some changes in the dates and time of the Annual Meeting Agenda in order to accommodate as many speakers and participants as possible. Please see the new tentative program below.
