Dear colleagues,

This is a pre-announcement for the 21st International Symposium on Chironomidae that will be held in Tsukuba, Japan.

Due to the coincidence with the Summer Olympic Games of Tokyo in 2020, the 21st International Symposium on Chironomidae will be irregularly postponed to 2021.

We expect to organize the symposium between the 4th and the 10th of July, 2021.

This period usually coincides with the end of the rainy season, but before the hottest heatwave of Japanese summer. So we would like to welcome a large number of Chironomid researchers in relatively comfortable conditions.

Tsukuba is a science city located at 1 hour from Tokyo-Narita international airport and about 2 hours from Tokyo-Haneda international airport, by bus.

We will provide more information in the future, but please note the dates of the Symposium in your agenda.
