Dear JAAS members,

The JAAS board members extend heartfelt condolences to JAAS members suffered from the Noto Earthquake on 1st January 2024, and decided to exempt the annual membership fee of fiscal year 2023 for such members. In case that you have not yet paid the membership fee for this fiscal year and want to receive the exemption, please fill the application, which is downloadable from the JAAS homepage, and send it to the board members for general affairs mentioned below.

As for the annual membership fee for the next year (fiscal year 2024), we will ask to continue the same measure for exemption to the next JAAS board members, because our term of office will be expired at the end of March 2024. Details on this issue will be fixed before the JAAS annual conference on 18-19 May 2024 at the Osaka University at the latest. We would ask the victims not to pay the fee before the decision of the next JAAS board members.

Another important announcement. Prof. Keiko Takemura let us know, on behalf of the secretariat of the 61st JAAS Annual Conference, the decision on the exemption from the conference registration fee for the disaster victims caused by Noto Earthquake on 1st January 2024. Details will be announced on the webpage of the annual conference. Please be careful of the announcement.
