As being reported, hazardous torrential rainfall and landslides caused serious damage in Asaminami and Asakita Wards in Hiroshima. The JACET convention venue, Hiroshima City University (HCU), is also located in Asaminami Ward. Concerning about the possibility of holding the convention, we have been repeatedly contacting the associate chair of the conference at HCU. Consequently, the following has been reported:
- The university is located in the southwest side of the Ward, and there's no serious damage in and around the university.
- The public transportation is on business as usual.
- Currently, it is possible to have the conference held.
Based on these, the JACET convention is going to be held with no schedule change. If, however, any unexpected situations occur, we will send you updated information on this JACET Website.
Regarding this, we have a request to all JACET members. there seem to be direct inquires to the HCU office by phone or e-mail about the upcoming conference. Under such circumstances in Hiroshima, the university office has been keeping themselves busy, so please refrain yourself from calling or e-mailing the university office. We'd like to thank you in advance for your understanding.
