Registration & Accommodations

Due to the spread of COVID-19, we are planning to hold WOODRISE 2021 KYOTO both on-site and online (hybrid meeting). In addition, we plan to provide on-demand streaming of some programs to the participants on this official website for a certain period of time. It's required the pre-registration for all participants.
Please note that the registration fee will be the same for both on-site participation and online participation.
Furthermore, supposing the difficulty for participants from overseas to come to Japan this coming October, we have decided to carry out some programs in 2022, which we planned to have this year, and to hold what we will call WOODRISE 2021+1 (plus one) next year, so that more people can come to Japan to participate. If you have registered for WOODRISE 2021 KYOTO, you can participate in the 2022 event with no additional registration fee.
Details of the 2022 event will be announced as soon as they are ready.
