Venue

ICOTOM 19 will be held in Japan for the first time in 39 years. The conference venue is in Osaka Prefecture University, which is located in Sakai city close to Osaka city, the biggest economic city in Japan. Sakai city is famous for Mozu cluster of burial mounds with the largest keyhole-shaped Daisenryo-kofun tumulus, also famous for hammer-forged cutting tools and so on. There is a smaller ancient mound, the so-called Nisanzai-kofun near the university. Sakai city thus is a historical and exciting town in Japan. We invite you to ICOTOM 19.
