Welcome to ICoME 2013!

You are cordially invited to ICoME 2013 (International Conference for Media in Education) in Nagoya, Japan, held on August 9-11, 2013. The ICoME 2013 is the 11th joint conference supported by Japan Association for Educational Media Study (JAMES) and Korean Association for Educational Information and Media (KAEIM) since 2003. After the big success of the 10th Anniversary of ICoME, first time held in Peking, China, thanks to Prof. Chen Li who organized ICoME 2012, we are back to Japan for this year. It is our first time to have ICoME in Nagoya, Japan, which is located in between Tokyo and Osaka, with an easy access to Chubu Centrair International Airport, Nagoya.

Since Nagoya is a historical city with such 16th Century warlords as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, the Nagoya Castle is a must for the first time visitors. As a part of its 400 year anniversary, Honmaru Palace of the Nagoya Castle will be open to public in coming May, as the result of a long renovation project (just in time for ICoME 2013 visitors!). Nagoya is Japan’s third biggest city and is also famous for more contemporary matters such as professional baseball team “Chunichi Dragons,” and headquarter of Toyota. Among my favorites is Nagoya City Science Musium, which is famous for experience-based displays and the world-biggest planetarium.

So, there are a lot of reasons why you should come to ICoME 2013. Not only sightseeing, but also re-joining the long-time colleagues living far apart, and meeting with new ones, strengthening our friendships, and exploring new ideas, experiences, research, and more! With a big support from Hoso Bunka Fundation, Japan, we will explore our way to strengthening international connections through media, with the theme "Media Driven International Collaboration –Breaking through! Gaining Insight! Broadening connections!–"

Hope to see you again in Nagoya. Bring your friends and students to continue our tradition of the warm and fruitful international collaboration this year in Japan, toward our 12th ICoME 2014 to celebrate the completion of one Chinese zodiac next year in Korea!

Katsuaki Suzuki, Ph. D
President of Japan Association for Educational Media Study
