The ICSI’2017 will be held at the Ohashi Campus of Kyushu University, which is one of five major campuses of Kyushu University and locates 4 km south from the Tenjin area, the center of the Fukuoka City. Fukuoka City is the Kyushu's largest city and locates at the northern end of the Kyushu Island and is the economical and cultural center of whole Kyushu Island. It has more than 1.5 million populations and is the 6th biggest population city in Japan. Because of its closeness to the Asian mainland, Fukuoka has been an important harbor city for many centuries. Today's Fukuoka is the product of the fusion of two cities in the year 1889, when the port city of Hakata and the former castle town of Fukuoka were united into one city called Fukuoka.
