About the conference
[Conference Cancellation] First of all, we need to apologize for the fact that the refunds have not been transferred yet. The pandemic situation in Poland has been changing quickly and we had to take several measures to balance the budget before we proceed the refund. In view of the recent pandemic developments in Poland and the current mandatory twoweek quarantine requirement for the internationals coming from abroad, it is highly unlikely that the conference could take place in July. For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 10th International Conference on Han Characters Education and Research in Poznań. After careful discussion with conference co-hosting parties, an alternative time and place is being considered. The preliminary proposal is to hold the 10th ICHER in summer 2021 in China. Adam Mickiewicz University at Poznań will be honored to organize the 11th ICHER in 2022. (Postponement Notice).
Conference Date: 20 ~ 22 February 2020 (Fri ~ Sun)
Conference Venue: Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland
