 MAXI 10 Year Workshop Postponed

MAXI 10 Year Workshop for the Time Domain Astronomy

We regret to inform you that due to concerns and uncertainties related to the novel coronavirus outbreak, we have decided to postpone the MAXI 10 Year Workshop for the Time Domain Astronomy, originally scheduled on March 10-12, 2020.
This was a difficult decision for us, but under the circumstances, we felt it better to postpone the workshop to a later date in order to provide a more scientifically fruitful event from all over the world. 
We are sorry for any inconvenience which this decision might have caused you, in particular for those who have already purchased the flights, but appreciate your understanding.

Our planned alternative date is possibly March 2021, when all the concerns about the outbreak will have hopefully been resolved.  The dates are still tentative, and we will keep you updated on any further developments.

Best wishes,

Nobuyuki Kawai, Tatehiro Mihara on behalf of the MAXI 2020 organizers
