    General information

    Meeting Venue

    The meeting will be held at:
    Kyoto ICC
    Takaragaike, Sakyo-ku
    Kyoto 606-0001 Japan

    The Kyoto International Conference Center (Kyoto ICC) has staged over 16,000 conferences since it opened in 1966 in this mecca of Japanese culture, as Japan's first state-sponsored international conference center.

    Kyoto ICC has not only played a key role in the history of international conferences in Japan but is a flagship platform for large-scale conventions in Asia as well.

    All visitors are impressed by Kyoto's 1100 years of history as the capital of Japan: 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites are situated in a cityscape dominated by 2000 temples and shrines. Japan is renowned for its safety and the compactness of Kyoto makes for wonderful strolling during free time. From the moment of arrival at Kansai International Airport - just 75 minutes from the center - guests of Kyoto are pampered with clear multilingual signs and clean efficient transport choices.

    Kyoto, Japan, has nurtured a unique culture over more than 1200 years since the glory of Heiankyo. This culture revels in beauty of the four seasons and forms the heart of Japanese hospitality. These historical buildings and places are integrated with diverse facets of culture, including tea ceremony, flower arrangement and Noh.
