Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Konnichiwa (Hello)! As a local host 2019, I cordially welcome you to the joint conference of the 6th Annual Conference on Engineering and Information Technology (ACEAIT), the 5th Asia-Pacific Conference on Life Science and Biological Engineering (APLSBE), and the 7th International Conference on Business and Social Science (ICBASS) to be held on March 26-28, 2019 in Kyoto, Japan.
It is my great pleasure to welcome you in this academic cultural city. Kyoto has been the center of Japanese tradition, religion and culture as the capital before Tokyo for more than 1,000 years (794-1868). It is worldly renowned as a popular travel destination, which possesses abundant national treasures as well as 17 temples and shrines, registered as World Heritage sites.
While Kyoto is known for its fine arts, crafts, textile, food and beverage (such as sake and green tea), it has numerous innovative leading companies, worldly known in the fields of electronics, ceramics, game software, medical and health equipment, etc. You will find the city fascinating with the successful fusion of ancient and modern aspects.
Kyoto Research Park (KRP), the venue of this joint conference, opened in 1989 as the nation's first privately-operated Research Park under the cooperation with Kyoto prefecture, City, and the local industries. Not too far from JR (Japanese Railways) Kyoto station, it is located in the heart of “Kyoto Innovation Belt” (of Katsura Innovation Park—southern part of Kyoto City—Keihanna Science City), serving as an innovation hub (iHub) to connect people, information and science & technology.
On such a unique venue, you will certainly get acquainted with the attendees through discussions and exchanges among one another. This joint conference will provide you with the opportunity to meet and interact with active researchers, friends and colleagues as well as exhibitors and organizers. I hope you will gain new inspiration for your research and enhance your network through new encounters.
I hope you will find time to explore some hidden part of Kyoto during your stay and discover new image of the country. You could time slip and sense the feeling of people of the ancient time. For your culinary experience and networking, the joint conference has organized a Gala Dinner for you to join and enjoy, preparing a quaint Japanese cuisine in the evening of March 26th at a Japanese restaurant in the heart of the city.
I am especially delighted that this joint conference will be held at the end of March, which usually coincides with the best cherry blossom season in this area. You will be welcomed by the beautiful scenery along with our attentive staff. Please don’t miss this wonderful opportunity from March 26 to 28, 2019, and make the most of this academic conference in this ancient capital of deep tradition, inspiration and innovation.
We sincerely look forward to seeing you at the joint conference of ACEAIT, APLSBE and ICBASS 2019 in Kyoto!
