Conference Site

The APMC 2010 will be held from December 7 to 10 at the Conference Center in Pacifico Yokohama. Pacifico Yokohama is one of the largest convention centers in the world, consisting of the Conference Center, the Exhibition Hall, a hotel and a big national hall, and is located in the Minato Mirai 21 (MM21) area of Yokohama (see the map on the back cover). Its beautiful shell?and?sail?shaped appearance is impressive when viewed from sea and from land as well.

The conference will be held in the Conference Center: 2nd Floor Entrance Hall for Registration; 3rd Floor Meeting Rooms for Technical Sessions, Workshops and Short Courses; and 5th Floor Meeting Rooms for the Opening Ceremony and Keynote Address.


Opened in 1859, Yokohama is celebrating its 150-year tradition of being the largest trading port of Japan. It is conveniently located 30 kilometers south of downtown Tokyo. The conference venue is in the MINATO MIRAI district, a collection of hotels, shopping malls, and restaurants.

You may find pop Japanese culture in Akihabara, a town famous for electronics and animations, and historical Japanese flavor in Asakusa in downtown Tokyo.

In Kamakura and Nikko, which are just day-time trips from Yokohama, you will be impressed by Japanese historical shrines, traditional temples and beautiful natural scenery.

Japanese scenic spots are very comfortable since they were laid out for walking at leisure.
