Press Releases

In 2021 Yokohama will be the first city in Japan to host the IEEE NSS-MIC.

26 September, 2018, Yokohama, JAPAN:

We are pleased to announce that the IEEE NSS-MIC (Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference) will be held in October of 2021 at the new PACIFICO YOKOHAMA NORTH facility, which is scheduled to open in the spring of 2020. The forum is a joint conference that encompasses the two fields of nuclear science and medical imaging. The host organization is the 186th Committee on Radiation Science and its Applications, a division of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. The committee is chaired by Kyoto University Prof. Ikuo Kanno (Department of Nuclear Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering).

On July 3, 2018 Yokohama was chosen by majority vote of the IEEE committee as the conference site from four finalist cities that also included Chiba, Kyoto and Vancouver, Canada. It’s the first time this conference will be held in Japan. About 2,000 participants are expected to attend with the majority (about 1,850) coming from abroad.

Through the collaborative efforts of the YCVB (Yokohama Convention & Visitors Bureau), the city of Yokohama and PACIFICO Yokohama, and working in unison with JNTO (Japan National Tourism Organization), a convincing case was made for Yokohama to act as host city. Dr. Taiga Yamaya, Ph.D (National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology) was the central figure in the promotional campaign. Dr. Yamaya was appointed as the MICE Ambassador by JNTO.

The enduring enthusiasm and future vision of the Yokohama contingent, which included professors belonging to the IEEE, was key in influencing the vote of the committee assigned to choosing the conference site. Intense research efforts in related fields in Japan recently also played an important role.

According to the committee, the city of Yokohama received high merits in many significant areas. The central location of the city’s facilities, such as the international conference hall, hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, and more, played a critical factor in the decision. Yokohama’s cosmopolitan atmosphere was also cited as a major attraction. Another determinant was the convenient access by public transportation to Tokyo and the attractiveness of the PACIFICO YOKOHAMA NORTH venue itself.

The IEEE labels itself as “the world's largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology.” The organization is heavily involved in innovation and research in electrical engineering-based fields, such as communications, electronics, and information engineering, for the benefit of humanity. It is made up of 39 sectional committees each specialized in certain fields.

WCCM2022 to be held in Yokohama, drawing around 3500 scholars.

26 September, 2018, Yokohama, JAPAN:

We are excited to report that Yokohama has been chosen as the host city for the 15th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM). At the 13th WCCM, which took place this year in New York from July 22nd through 27th, it was officially announced that the new PACIFICO YOKOHAMA NORTH facility would be the venue for the 2022 conference.

This is the second time for the congress to be held in Japan. It was previously held in Chiba in 1994. About 3500 researchers and experts in the fields of computational engineering and computational mechanics from around the globe are expected to participate. Of those, roughly 2,000 will be coming from abroad.

To help promote Japan as a venue, the former president of JSCES (The Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science), Prof. Kenjiro Terada (Tohoku University, International Research Institute of Disaster Science) was officially appointed as a "MICE Ambassador" by JNTO in March of 2017. Prof. Seiichi Koshizuka (University of Tokyo, School of Engineering, Department of Systems Innovation) was elected as chairperson for the WCCM2022.

In cooperation with JNTO (Japan National Tourism Organization) and the Japan Tourism Agency, YCVB (Yokohama Convention & Visitors Bureau), the city of Yokohama and PACIFICO Yokohama worked in unison to successfully convince the organizations responsible for making the decision–JSCES and JACM (Japan Association for Computational Mechanics)–that Yokohama was the optimal choice.

The local organizing committee established “Pursuing the Infinite Potential of Computational Mechanics” as its vision statement. The committee members see this field as one that transcends the scope of traditional engineering disciplines by exploring the potential of new concepts and technologies to address societal needs. Additionally, they have proposed an initiative to train the next generation of students. The wealth of academic achievements and enthusiasm of the professors on this committee were key factors in the choice of Yokohama as host.

In the spring of 2020, a new MICE facility will open at PACIFICO Yokohama, Minato Mirai, featuring Japan's largest multipurpose hall

The Minato Mirai Convention Center (tentative name, referred to below as "new facility"),

Japan's largest MICE complex*1 will open adjacent to PACIFICO Yokohama (official name:Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama, location: Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan) in the spring of 2020.

The new facility will be built adjacent to the PACIFICO Yokohama Exhibition Hall, and plans include 42 large, medium, and small conference rooms in addition to the largest multipurpose hall in the country*2. This multipurpose hall, which can be divided into as many as 8 sections depending on the required size and application, is an ideal space for hosting major corporate conventions. It is also suitable for ceremonies, incentive travel events (training and incentive travel), trade fairs and exhibitions, new product launches, and large scale parties. The added facility, in combination with the current facilities, will allow the concurrent hosting of two large scale international meetings or academic conferences of up to 3,000 people.

In addition, Resorttrust, Inc. (location: Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan) is scheduled to open The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama, a 146 room luxury resort hotel, next to the new facility in the summer of 2020*3. Our company leads Japan*4 in hosting international conferences. Meanwhile, with the rapid economic progress of the Asia-Pacific region, large-scale MICE facilities are being built in a variety of places, and the competition to attract international conferences and large-scale incentive travel is ever intensifying. The facility soon to be completed is similar to large banquet halls at advanced MICE facilities overseas. We expect that this facility will help create a new market.

We aim to provide our customers with the same high quality service at our new facility as they receive at our current facilities.
