The 21st International Symposium on Chironomidae was originally scheduled for Tsukuba, Japan in July 2021. However, the COVID-19 pandemic is far from ending and Tokyo Summer Olympic Games were postponed to 2021. Many international conferences including the International Congress of Entomology or the Congress of the International Society of Limnology were also reported to next year. The organizing committee wishes to welcome the whole community of chironomid researchers to Tsukuba under safer and the best possible conditions. For this reason, the organizing committee decided to postpone the symposium to summer 2022. As many colleagues agreed, a physical meeting will yield more fruitful exchanges in our field rather than an online symposium. This is also one point that motivated our decision to postpone the 21st International Symposium on Chironomidae to 2022. As soon as the new dates for the Symposium are fixed, we will make a new announcements in the Chironomus Journal, on the Chironomid Home Page and in the Chironomidae list server (

We wish you all good health and look forward to welcome all of you in Tsukuba!
