Welcome!

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), it is a pleasure to invite you to BioEM 2022, the joint annual meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), in Nagoya, Japan, from June 19th to 24th 2022.

BioEM is the world’s largest and most highly recognized international conference in the field of bioelectromagnetics. Nagoya is one of the most active areas for bioelectromagnetic research in Japan from the dawn to the present. BioEM 2022 is expected to stimulate further research through the exchange of academic information and ideas. The six-day program of BioEM 2022 will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned scientists in the field of bioelectromagnetics, as well as various special sessions, workshops and tutorials on the most pressing issues in the field of bioelectromagnetics. The program also contains a variety of technical sessions, poster sessions and social functions. Student competitions are also the focus of the conference. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in oral and poster sessions, develop their presentation skills, participate in student competitions and network with other members of the community.

In addition to scientific activities, BioEM 2022 will be your opportunity to visit historical city Nagoya, which is located 100 minutes from Tokyo, 50 min from Osaka, and 35 minutes from Kyoto by express train. It is the largest city in central Japan, the fourth largest city in Japan, and one of the nation’s most important industrial powerhouses. You can enjoy one-day trip from Nagoya to scenery with fusion of nature and tradition, such as Ise Grand Shrine, Shirakawa-go (a World Heritage site) and more.

We sincerely welcome you to the wonderful city of Nagoya to participate in and contribute to BioEM 2022. See you in Nagoya!

Venue

Venue

Aichi Industry and Labor Center (WINC AICHI)
4-4-38 Meieki, Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan

Aichi Industry and Labor Center (WINC AICHI) is conveniently just a five‐minute walk away from JR Nagoya station’s Sakura‐dori exit and a two-minute walk from Unimall underground mall exit 5. It is the only venue in such close proximity to Nagoya Station that can accommodate 801 people. WINC AICHI has large exhibition hall, a small hall, and a variety of conference rooms.

Nagoya

Nagoya is the capital and largest city of Aichi prefecture, and the fourth‐largest city in Japan. Nagoya forms the core of the Chukyo metropolitan area and is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world. As of October 1, 2019, the population of Nagoya is 2.3 million, which contributes to Chukyo metropolitan area’s overall population of 10.11 million. As the most centrally located major city, Nagoya has evolved into a major transportation hub to provide various modes of efficient connections to other cities in Japan, such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Yokohama. In addition to being a transportation hub, Nagoya is also one of the nation’s most important historical centers and industrial powerhouses. Toyota Motor Corporation, the world’s largest automotive manufacturer, which is also the largest company in Japan by market capitalization and the sixth‐largest company in the world by revenue, is headquartered in the city of Toyota in the Nagoya area. Finally, and notably, Nagoya is one of the world’s most innovative research hubs in the field of bioelectromagnetics.

Climate

The Pacific Current generates a mild climate in this part of the country. Annual rain precipitation is more abundant closer to the mountains than in the plains or peninsulas. Rainfall is more frequent from March through October, which includes the rainy season in June–July and the peak typhoon season in August–September. As Nagoya lies almost in the middle of Japan, its weather is said to be the epitome of Japanese weather, representing a very average climate with relatively mild weather. The average temperature in June is 22.7 degrees Celsius.

Transportation

As the most centrally located major city, Nagoya evolved early as a major transportation hub and offers complete infrastructure for land, sea, and air transport, making it an ideal base for businesses and tourists. Numerous major highways lead to and from Nagoya. The Shinkansen bullet train system is centered in Nagoya, as are a number of standard rail systems. There is easy access to the Central Japan International Airport, Centrair, located about 30 minutes by express train south of the city. The Port of Nagoya is Japan’s busiest port and is connected to 170 countries worldwide, handling over 197 million tons of cargo annually. Nagoya is undoubtedly Japan’s central hub that keeps Japan Inc. on track and its wheels rolling smoothly.
