You are kindly requested to book your accommodation by yourself. There are a lot of hotels, hostels and "ryokan" (Japanese style inns) in Kyoto. "Sanjo" and "Okazaki" areas in Kyoto are the most closest to the venue.
However, we have booked a block of rooms at some hotels. These are available at a discounted rate until April 30, 2017. Please send your request from the hotel request page at http://ieic5.org/registration/hotel-request.
