IFIP Working Group 2.11, Eighteenth Meeting

This page is, obviously, incomplete. As information is completed group members and visitors will be notified.

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 Kyoto University.


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.

Jeremy 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.
