Reception, Banquet, and Excursion

Welcome Reception

The welcome reception with drinks/snacks will be organized near the conference venue on November 6 (Mon) at 18:00. Please visit the registration first.

Banquet

Banquet will be held in the evening of Nov. 9 (Thu) at a Japanese restaurant “Ganko Takasegawa Nijoen” at 18:30-21:00.

  • Tel: 075-223-3456
  • Fee: 7,000 yen.

Excursion

Excursion to Kwasan Observatory will be planned in the afternoon of Nov 9 (Thu). The number of the seats of buses is limited (40), and therefore, we cannot accept online registration for the excursion.

The buses will leave the conference venue at 14:00 on 9 Nov after taking group photo. So please be sure to stay the venue of group photo. On the 9 Nov, the passenger lists for each bus will be displayed at the reception desk. Please check the list to confirm on which bus you will be riding and be sure to get on that bus.

At Kwasan Observatory, participants will be divided into TWO groups and be taken on a tour around telescopes. All the passengers on the same bus will be treated as a single group. There will be NO space to put large luggage on the buses for the excursion. In addition, after the excursion, the buses will go directly to the banquet venue ”Ganko Takasegawa Nijoen”, without returning to the conference venue. Please do not bring large luggage to the conference venue on that day.
