IISW 2011 Announcement

Eric Fossum posted in comments on Japan earthquake disaster:

"Regarding 2011 IISW:
We are delaying registration payments until we understand the magnitude of the evolving nuclear catastrophe. As a precautionary step, we have started to investiagte alternate locations elsewhere in Japan and to consider neighboring countries in Asia.
(from N. Teranishi and J. Nakamura)

  4. Japan offered/offering and inspiring us in image technologies. I will recommend opening a donation account as image world or via the IISW to donate as a community.

  5. Japan has amazing people and the ability to recover quickly with more strength than before. They don't need the help.

    Sorry, I have absolutely no experience with opening and managing donation accounts. If somebody can do it, I'd gladly post a link. Meanwhile, you can donate on one of already opened accounts, such as these:
