We Hope the End of the Pandemic to Resume Our Research Activities

We begin the Japanese fiscal year 2020 under the influence of the new coronavirus COVID-19. In order to give priority to preventing the spread of the infection to our faculty and staff members, postdoc researchers, graduate students and everyone, the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research has decided to cancel or postpone various meetings and events, and to suspend some observational activities. We hope that the spread of the new coronavirus will end, and the normal research activities of our Institute can be resumed soon.
