JALTCALL Conference Hit by SARS

The following was posted last night on the JALTCALL web site:
"Due to a request from Ministry of Health and Labor regarding the possible spread of SARS, the President of Kinjo University has asked us to postpone the upcoming JALTCALL conference. Thus, we are sorry to have to announce that the conference cannot be held on June 7/8, and you should now take immediate action to cancel travel and accommodation plans. We are considering options now, including postponement, and hope to make an announcement as soon as things become clear. We will also be monitoring the SARS situation as it develops.

We will be contacting people who registered for the conference on an individual basis. We also welcome comments, questions, and feedback, which should be sent to the following email address:

This sudden notice came as a surprise and shock to us all, and we are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused. On behalf of the Conference Committee - Timothy Gutierrez (JALT CALL SIG Coordinator)"
