On October 30, the 31st IFSCC Congress 2020 Yokohama (The Virtual Congress) has ended successfully after 10 days with regret of many people.
Affected by COVID-19, this Congress changed to a Virtual one for the first time ever, but over 1500 people from around the world have attended the Congress.
Participants have viewed 436 presentations (69 Podiums, 367 Posters) on-demand for 10 days and communicated with presenters using functions like the Q&A chat and Like! button.
The Congress had also been fruitful through social events like the Opening Ceremony including the Distinguished Lecture by the Nobel Prize Winner Honorary Professor Yoshinori Ohsumi, Ph.D., the President Transition Ceremony, the Award Ceremony and brilliantly summed up by the Closing Ceremony held on the final day of the Congress.
These Events had been very impressive expressing “Japaneseness” like the Japanese Traditional Performing Art Noh “Shakkyo” in the Opening Ceremony or the “sanbonjime” using wooden clappers in the Closing Ceremony.
Followed by many cosmetic research results, the following 3 presentations have been awarded.
