Welcome Message from Local Host:

Dear scholars and friends,

On behalf of Higher Education Forum I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of you to the Kyoto Joint Conference which will be held on 22-24 November, 2016 in Kyoto, Japan. The conference will bring together scientists from all over the world to exchange new ideas, recent results, and future perspectives in all aspects of science and engineering. The program will include keynote lectures by distinguished researchers as well as ample space for young researchers to present their works.
Kyoto is a very fitting venue to host “Kyoto Joint Conference”, being of course the spiritual and cultural capital of Japan. Kyoto is the heart of Japan and a city with over a millennium of history. More than one million tourists visit Kyoto each year. There are 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Kyoto, which was the former capital for 1000 years (794 to 1869) during which time many major temples, important shrines and imperial palaces were built there. Thus, attendees of this joint conference will be able to enjoy a very unique blend of tradition and culture in this city along with the hospitality of its citizens in a safe, comfortable environment, all of which make it a very appealing destination.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy your stay in Kyoto and bring home lots of experiences and knowledge from this conference.

Yours Sincerely,

Hooman Farzaneh
