2021 AASVET President’s Greeting Remark by Prof. Taniguchi

As president, I would like to give a brief greeting on the occasion of this conference.

The conference, which started in 2005, will celebrate its 17th anniversary this year.
The accumulation of conferences can be said to be the history of AASVET itself.
Initially organized in East Asia, AASVET has since grown significantly with the addition of Southeast Asian countries. The annual conference, which is held around the participating countries, is the most important opportunity to solidify the identity of the organization AASVET. However, the COVID-19 disaster that has continued since last year has severely restricted our academic activities.

There is concern that academic society activities will be stagnant because members from each country cannot gather in one place to make presentations and discussions face-to-face. Like last year, this year's conference will be on the web and there are some restrictions, but I would like to see many members participate in this year's conference and make it a grand conference. I would like to express my respect and gratitude for the efforts of the members of Taiwan, the secretariat of this year's conference.

Let's overcome the crisis caused by COVID-19 and further develop AASVET.

Dr. TANIGUCHI Yuji, President of AASVET
