Another IEEE Computer Society sponsored conference, the International Symposium on Embedded Multicore Systems-on-chip (MCSoC-11), has also been rescheduled due to the earthquake.
Originally scheduled for 21-23 September of this year, the conference has now been postponed to September 2012. Besides the IEEE Computer Society, the conference is sponsored by IEEE, the IEEE Technical Committee on Microprocessors and Microcomputers, and the IEEE Sendai Section.
The conference was scheduled to be held at University of Aizu, Japan’s first computer science university, located in Aizu-Wakamatsu, in Fukushima prefecture, home to the stricken nuclear reactors. The university is open to its student researchers, however many are involved in earthquake relief efforts. The facilities sustained some damage in the quake, which prompted cancellation of commencement ceremonies and classes until the end of April.
