第12届汉字书法教育国际研讨会推迟召开通告

Dear All,

As COVID-19 is wreaking global havoc on humanity, we, ASSCE, hope each of you and your family remains safe and healthy.

Since the outbreak of the viral pandemic, we have been closely assessing its potential impact on the 12th International Conference on Hanzi Calligraphy Education. Through careful exchange and consultation with the host institution Shaoxing Lanting School of Calligraphy (LSC), we have decided to postpone this Conference until the summer of 2021 (The exact schedule of the postponed conference will be determined between ASSCE and LSC depending on the safety level of the environment.

We will keep accepting proposals of conference papers and calligraphy works until the extended deadline for submission, i.e., April 30th, 2020. For those registered conference participants who have made donations, we offer the following two options: a) requesting a full or partial refund via email (assce.2020@gmail.com) any time before the announcement of the new schedule of the Conference (approximately March 15, 2021); and b) letting ASSCE keep the donations.

We fully understand the inconveniences caused by the postponement of the Conference to its participants. This announcement can be used as proof of valid excuse for requesting cancellation or refunding of travel-related bookings. If you have any further questions or need any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at the following email addresses:

Huiwen Li, ASSCE President: h.li84@csuohio.edu

Daan Pan, ASSCE Executive Director and Conference U.S. Director: dpan@cpp.edu

Thank you for your understanding!

Please do stay safe and healthy!

American Society of Shufa Calligraphy Education (ASSCE)
