Decision to hold the conference in Tokyo:
Tokyo only received limited physical damages from the earthquake. However, the organizing and steering committees are monitoring the evolution of the situation at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. While there does not currently seem to be any indication that the conference may not be held safely in Tokyo in December, the committees are aware of the concerns, and ready to take appropriate actions if necessary.

In early May, the organizing committee surveyed recent CoNEXT attendees on the subject of the situation in Japan. Results are here. Based on community feedback along with assessments by various authorities, the organizing and steering committees have decided that the conference will go on as planned in Tokyo. Thanks to all who participated in the survey for their feedback.
