please contact the conference committee to give the following information.

certification to entre Japan and to apply the visa (if you need a visa) .
* Your passport date(Please send a copy of the page in your passport
that has your photo, name etc. on it.)
* Your accommodation(Hotel) details in Japan (Hotel name, Address,
Tel No., Check-in/out date etc.).
Please note that you need to book a hotel first,before the
registration to the ERFS.
