Welcome to AIC2015
The Color Science Association of Japan (CSAJ) is pleased to invite you to Tokyo for the Midterm Meeting of the AIC. In 1997, we held the 8th AIC Congress in Kyoto, the historical Capital of Japan. Many of you might have a good memory of the AIC Kyoto. Eighteen years have passed since then, we would like invite you to Tokyo, the modern and exciting Capital of Japan.
This Meeting will provide a unique forum, bringing together researchers, academics, students, artists, architects, industrialists, engineers, designers, computer scientists, lighting experts, media types, exhibitors and business leaders. This year the 16th International Symposium on Multispectral Colour Science (MCS 2015) will be organized as part of AIC2015. We anticipate more than 300 delegates from all over the world.
The venue will be one of the International Conference Centers in the downtown of Tokyo. You can easily access to Tokyo from two International Airports: Narita Airport, which handles the majority of international flights, is located 60 km outside of central Tokyo, while Haneda Airport is located more centrally. Today, Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. The city’s history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center and within relatively short train rides at its outskirts.
May is the best month to visit Tokyo as the vegetation has become lush, the temperatures are still comfortable and tourist spots tend to be pleasantly uncrowded. Before, after and during the meeting, you will enjoy an exciting Tokyo. More updated information is available at www.aic2015.org.
