Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We understand many are concerned regarding recent severe weather events that have occurred in western and northern Japan. The IFPA 2018 staff have monitored these events carefully and our thoughts and prayers are with our colleagues and the people affected by these events.

Tokyo itself was spared from any damage and we can assure everyone that the IFPA 2018 conference in Tokyo will run as scheduled. Businesses and transportation within the Tokyo area, including Narita airport, are all operating normally and preparations at the conference venue are complete. On behalf of the Jikei University and IFPA 2018 organizing staff, we extend our warmest welcome to Tokyo, Japan and are looking forward to a very successful conference.

All the Best,

IFPA 2018 Congress President
