APPPF Kyoto, 2022

We are very pleased to announce that the Asia-Pacific Paleopathology Forum (APPPF) will be held in Kyoto from July 30 to August 1, 2022. The conference will be hosted at Doshisha University. The Asia-Pacific Paleopathology Forum (APPPF) is organized to promote academic exchanges among paleopathologists of the Asia Pacific region like PPA meetings in other continents. Organizing APPPF can thus be an intermediate step to our final goal: Asia-Pacific meetings of paleopathologists. It is our great honor to organize this meeting for the first time in Japan, and we are looking forward to greeting colleagues from around the globe working in the region. For those interested, please consult this homepage.

2022.5.13 APPPF will be held completely online

APPPF Kyoto is fast approaching. However, the relaxation of Japan's border measures associated with COVID-19 countermeasures is still unclear. The current strict regulations will impose a heavy burden on participants from overseas. In light of these circumstances, the APPPF Organizing Committee has made a tough decision to hold the event online. We deeply apologize to everyone who made various preparations for coming to Japan.
The details of the online method and new registration fees will be announced soon.
