IFIP Working Group 2.11, Eighteenth Meeting

June 4-7, 2018 in Kyoto, Japan.

The meeting will be held in Kyoto, Japan, hosted by Atsushi Igarashi.

The meeting will last 3.5 days; the first three days (June 4-6) will be full-day, whereas the last day (June 7) will be a half-day session.


The meeting will be held at Room 221, Research Build. #8, Kyoto University. (Research Build. #8 is the building numbered 59 in this campus map.) If you stay in the Hearton Hotel Kyoto, you can take a rapid bus to Kyoto Univ. at Karasuma-Oike. Get off at either Kyoto Univ. Main Gate or Hyakumanben, which is shown on the campus map. Or, you can walk. It takes about 40 minutes.

On Monday, Atsushi will stop by at the Hearton Hotel Kyoto at 8am (sharp!:-) to pick up some of you to ride the 8:07 bus. (We can arrive at the meeting room before 8:40.)


Kansai International Airport, located south of Osaka, is the natural access route to Kyoto. From there you can reach Kyoto Station in 1 hour 15 minutes, using the Limited Express HARUKA (runs twice an hour). Another option is to use a shared taxi (shuttle), which you should book in advance, operated either by Yasaka Taxi or MK Taxi. You can also fly first to Narita International Airport or Haneda International Airport in Tokyo, and then connect to Osaka Airport (ITM) from which you can take a limousine bus or a shared taxi to Kyoto. (If you are a train fan, it may be a good idea to take Shinkansen (superexpress train) from Tokyo to Kyoto, although it's an expensive choice.) The Central Japan International Airport, nearby Nagoya, provides an alternative access route. The Mu-Sky limited express to Nagoya runs every 30mn (and takes 30mn), and from there to Kyoto is just 35mn by Shinkansen (albeit a bit expensive).

The organizer will conduct a survey for those who would like to use the shuttle bus from the airport.

You can check timetables for trains inside Japan on Jorudan's Norikae-Annai or on Google Maps.

Joint trips before/after the meeting

People arriving before the meeting: Ulrik and Christoph (arriving Saturday, will be in Kyoto Sunday), Kevin (in Kyoto Sunday, my wife will be joining me), Jacques (arriving Saturday evening via Osaka), Jeremy (arriving Saturday), Tony (arriving Saturday evening Osaka).

People staying after the meeting: Ulrik (staying until Saturday, considering Osaka), Ken (leaving via Osaka on Friday), Julia (probably staying until Saturday, flying out of Osaka), Kevin (leaving Monday, from Osaka), Christoph (leaving Friday, from Osaka), Jacques (leaving Saturday, from Osaka), Tony (leaving Saturday evening via Osaka).

Places to go: on June 7 (Thursday), Ken suggests Kyoto Railway Museum in the afternoon, followed by Kyoto Butoh Kan at 8pm. The Butoh performance seats 8, and is now sold out after 7 of us bought tickets. (Doors open 20 minutes in advance; the performance runs 45 minutes.)

I (Jeremy G) can recommend a trip to Arashiyama, if you have a free day or even half-day; I did this on Sunday. This is a suburb on the western edge of Kyoto, accessible by various routes (eg Tozai subway line from Karasuma Oike station to the end, then the very cute Keifuku Randen tram). There are many temples and gardens, and the famous Bamboo Grove. I particularly recommend Tenryu-ji, a huge temple complex, and Okochi Sanso strolling garden, established by the silent samurai-movie star Okochi Denjiro. The short walk between the two inevitably takes you through the Bamboo Grove. I've just noticed (too late for me) that there is a Michelin-starred eel restaurant there too; book ahead! If you take the tram back, consider getting off at Arisugawa to walk 3 minutes to Tenzan-no-yu onsen.


Jeremy G suggests the following: I thought it would be helpful - for those like myself, arriving early in the morning but not able to check in to a hotel in the afternoon - to point out that that it is easy to get a nice hot bath cheaply in Japan, in a public facility called a sento. You have to be comfortable being naked with strangers (of the same sex); but there is no better way to relax after a long flight. However, note that tattoos are not welcome. As it happens, there is a basic sento in the basement of Kyoto Tower, which is just across the road from Kyoto Station where people are likely to arrive in the city, open from early to late: Kyoto Tower Daiyokujo Yuu 07:00-22:00 (basement 3F). But Atsushi has recommended a "super-sento" (a fancier place, with several different pools, masseurs, restaurant, a bit more expensive) called Hana-no-yu はなの湯, one station away from Kyoto Station, which is open from 10:00.
