International Conference on Economic Structures   Autumn Conference (in Japanese)

ICES 2020 canceled due to COVID-19

 We have decided to cancel ICES 2020 due to the current spread of the Covid-19 virus.
 We received an e-mail from the Dean of Graduate School of Management, Kyoto University, which ask us to cancel PAPAIOS-ICES2020.
 Canceling ICES 2020 was a difficult decision, thinking all of our speakers and abstract authors have put immense time and  energy into their presentations. The ICES 2020 General Organizing Committee wishes to thank everyone for their patience throughout this decision-making process sincerely.
 As the cancellation of the conference, all attendees will be eligible for a full refund of their registration fee. Please allow us time to process full registration fee refunds.
