It is with great regret that – owing to the global situation – the Chairs of HCC14 have decided to cancel this year’s conference.

The Proceedings of HCC14 will still be completed – reviewing is currently underway and if you are a reviewer please complete your review on time. Notifications may be slightly delayed, but accepted authors should endeavour to return their revised manuscripts within the deadline – and properly formatted. Springer will then publish the Proceedings of HCC14 as an eBook only, in January 2021.

The hosts of HCC14, at Chuo University, Tokyo, have, however, already expressed interest in hosting HCC15, in September 2022. Full details and a new Call for Papers will be posted here in due course.

HCC14 Conference Chairs


In response to requests for a little more time, the Conference Chairs have agreed to extend the deadline for submissions to 21st February 2020. There will be no further extensions. We hope this will give more time to ensure the widest possible engagement with the conference from participants from around the world.
