Announcement of extension of deadline for PSJ General Meeting held online

July 30th, 2020

Dear Members of the Phonetics Society of Japan

The 34th General Meeting of PSJ scheduled to be held at Kobe Gakuin University on September 25th and 26th has been decided to be held online, due to the unpredictable future conditions related to the spread of the coronavirus infection. We will ask all participants to make a real-time presentation using Zoom. In addition, the presentation will be recorded and made available to PSJ members only for a certain period after the event.

In this way, you will also be able to participate from overseas or from remote areas if you can access the network on the days of the Meeting. Therefore, the deadline for presentation applications will be extended until Friday, July 10. It is a good opportunity for more members as well as non-members to participate than if it were held as a regular national convention. The 35th General Meeting in 2021 will be held at Kobe Gakuin University.

Chair of PSJ Planning Committee, Ryoko Hayashi

Cancellation of the next regular meeting

April 5th, 2020
The 341st regular meeting, which was announced to be held on May 30th, 2020, at the University of Tokyo, has been canceled due to the context surrounding the novel coronavirus. By the end of April, we will provide information about the general meeting, which is planned to be held on September 26th and 27th, 2020, at Kobe Gakuin University.

Planning Committee

The meeting of the councilors, which is usually held after a regular meeting, has been postponed. We expect that the first meeting of this academic year will be held at the general meeting. The exact date of this meeting will be announced at a later time.
