Separately, the Conference Bursary Competition remains open with the deadline for applications extended until February 25, 2021.

Furthermore, considering the widespread impact COVID-19, except for main events such as Keynote Speeches and Plenary Sessions, all individual presentations (Individual Paper Presentations and Pre-arranged Thematic Panel Sessions) will, in principle, be held online.
Nevertheless, for those for whom it is possible to present in-person at Ryukoku University during the conference, please indicate this at the time of submitting your abstract application.
We plan to inform those who have submitted abstracts whether they have been accepted or rejected on March 31, with the Conference Program being announced at the beginning of April.

In hosting the 12th Annual ACS Conference, the Conference Organizers – Ryukoku University - will continue to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of participants and minimize the risks posed by COVID-19.

We look forward to hosting the 12th Annual ACS Conference in June 2021.
