2008: Conference venue and accommodation
The conference will be held on June 21-22, 2008, on the Ikebukuro campus of Rikkyo
University in Tokyo. The location of campus can be seen on transport maps in English and Japanese. The maps give directions and times from major points in Tokyo. The university site also offers a map of access to the campus with
link to a PDF for printing. This gives directions on how to walk
to the the campus from the nearest major station. (Nearer the date of
the conference we will provide details of the campus buildings used for
the conference sessions.)
The Ikebukuro Campus of Rikkyo University is a short walk from Ikebukuro Station (池
袋駅), a major terminus on the "Yamanote" Line, with many options for JR
trains or subways. There are some hotels in or near Ikebukuro itself.
One of the main areas in Tokyo for hotels is Shinjuku, just five
minutes from Ikebukuro by train. Shinjuku is home to hotels at a wide
range of prices. Shinjuku hotels can easily be found on
internet hotel guides such as Asiarooms, Expedia,

hotels within a
short subway or train ride away. Many sites list the hotels in terms of
