1. Apology for abstract submission web system trouble

We, Japan Geoscience Union have updated our web system since last year.
We’ve individually corresponded to everyone who could not make credit card settlements. We really took this situation seriously and we’re going to thoroughly investigate the causes of this system error and try to cash in on this experience next year. Please be sure to make JpGU Meeting registration as early as possibble. Please be in a hurry to make JpGU Meeting registration 2010.
