This is a forwarded message from the organizers of the 22nd Annual Conference of the Japan Language Testing Association.

We have decided to cancel the 22nd Annual Conference of the Japan Language Testing Association scheduled to be held at Hokkai-Gakuen University in Sapporo from September 8th to 9th, 2018 due to the earthquake that hit Hokkaido early in the morning of September 6th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause on your part, but we hope you will understand the difficult circumstances we are working under. We will keep you posted on further updates on this site. In the meantime, we express our deepest condolences to those in the affected area, and pray for speedy recovery.
