Background

The SPARC General Assembly 2018 will be held in Kyoto 1 – 5 October 2018, back to back iCACGP-IGAC 2018.

iCACGP, IGAC and SPARC have agreed to make use of this opportunity to maximize the mutual benefit to the iCACGP, IGAC, and SPARC communities to promote collaboration toward the “One Atmosphere” approach.

Hence, the iCACGP-IGAC 2018 and SPARC GA 2018 LOCs will set up a discount registration rate. The iCACGP-IGAC 2018 LOC will offer a discount rate for the SPARC GA 2018 participants who also wish to partially (last 1.5 days) attend the iCACGP-IGAC 2018, and vice versa. This would enable interested participants to combine the two trips (thus saving money and reducing their carbon footprint!).

We strongly encourage all the participants, particularly early career scientists, to attend both the iCACGP-IGAC 2018 and SPARC GA 2018. This is also an opportunity to hold a side meeting for the jointly sponsored activities by IGAC and SPARC.

The distance from Takamatsu to Kyoto is approximately 200 km, and it takes two hours by bullet train (Shinkansen) with a reasonable fare (8,610 JPY). Long-distance bus is also available, also at a reasonable cost (4,950 JPY).
