The 54th ISJ Annual Meeting (Web Meeting), 31 October–1 November, 2020
As announced on 12 May, the ISJ Annual Meeting in Nagasaki, 2020, was unfortunately canceled due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. However, alternatively, we have decided to hold the meeting online. We will do our best to keep the activities for advancement of ichthyology by sharing this opportunity with the society members to present your papers and interact each other under these difficult circumstances. The online meeting will take place during 31 October (Sat)–1 November (Sun), 2020, in Japanese (primary) and English. Only the society members have the privilege of attending the meeting.
Registration to present papers (oral or poster)
The presenter must be an honorary member or an individual member (regular, student, foreign and sustaining) of ISJ, having paid a membership fee of the 2020 fiscal year (from 1 August 2020 to 31 July 2021).

If you are a foreign student living in Japan and having difficulty in registering in our website (in Japanese) https://sites.google.com/view/isj2020/, then you might want to ask for your supervisor’s help to navigate the system. In this case, make sure to type in the supervisor’s name in the designated area in the system.

If you are an individual foreign member and unable to fill in the web form in Japanese by any means, then you can still download a form by clicking here, fill it in, and send it to the representative of the organizing committee (Dr. Katsutoshi Watanabe, email address: isj_mtg2020_info@fish-isj.jp) by e-mail.

The registration is due by 31 August 2020, 17:00 (JST, GMT+9:00). Bare in your mind this deadline is for presenters only, and if you do not present papers but just like to participate in the meeting, then there is no need to register.
Abstract submission
The participants who wish to present papers must prepare for abstracts in English or Japanese and send it to the organizing committee (Email address: isj_mtg2020_abst@fish-isj.jp). Abstracts for all oral and poster presentations must be received by 17:00 on 30 September, 2020 (JST, GMT+9:00). All of the abstracts will be included in the 2020 Annual Meeting Abstracts, which can be downloaded from the ISJ webpage for member only in the middle of October.
Abstract preparation
Type in the title of paper followed by author(s) and affiliations. If your paper has co-author(s), then you must mark the presenter by an asterisk. Type in the affiliation in the parentheses after the name of the author. Also, insert a single-line space between the title and name of the author, and then another single-line space before the body of the abstract.

The following tags can be used when necessary:
a. italic: <I>character</I>
b. superscript: <SUP>character</SUP>
c. subscript: <SUB>character</SUB>

The abstract, including the title and name of the author (and affiliation), should not exceed more than 1504 characters (NOT words) (94 characters by 16 lines). Please note that all of the spaces between lines and words are also counted as the number of characters.
Registration is free of charge.
