   It is our pleasure to announce that the Cryogenics and Superconductivity Society of Japan (CSSJ) will host the 10th Asian Conference on Applied Superconductivity and Cryogenics (ACASC), 2nd International Cryogenic Materials Conference in Asia (Asian-ICMC), and the CSSJ meeting as a joint conference which will be held at Okinawa, Japan, between January 6 to 9, 2020. Superconductivity school is also planned to be held on Jan. 6 as the 4th Asian Superconductivity Summer School (AS3).
   The ACASC was initiated in 2000 as a joint workshop between Japan and South Korea to enhance mutual cooperation and technical exchanges in the field of applied superconductivity and cryogenic engineering. The workshop was extended to the ACASC by joining China. The 1st ACASC was held in 2003 at Beijing, China, then India, and Turkey joined in 2007, and 2009, respectively. During that time the 2nd ACASC was held at Miyazaki, Japan in 2004, and followed by the 3rd at Busan, Korea in 2005; 4th at Xi’an, China in 2007; 5th at Matsue, Japan in 2009; 6th at Delih, India in 2011; 7th at Kappadokia, Turkey in 2013; 8th at Hangzhou, China in 2015; and 9th at Jeju, Korea in 2017.
   The Asian-ICMC started as a new series of ICMC focusing on cryogenic and superconducting materials studies emerging in Asia. The 1st Asian-ICMC was held in at Kanazawa, Japan in 2016.
   The AS3 is a series of summer school starting from the Japan-Korea Superconductivity Summer School (JKSSS) in 2015 at Fukuoka, Japan, then it was extended to the 1st AS3 in 2016 at Jeju, Korea, and followed by the 2nd at Miyazaki, Japan in 2017, and 3rd at Beijing, China in 2018. This school is supported by the IEEE CSC in cooperation with CSSJ, Korean Institute of Applied Superconductivity and Cryogenics (KIASC) and Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). This time, is the summer school on January? No problem, Okinawa is a well-known tropical island.
   We hope that we can provide good opportunities for in-depth discussion on the technical issues and international cooperation among attendees with a rich environment of nature and attractions at Okinawa.
