I was planning to attend the 11th International Conference on Computer Science and Education (ICCSE2016), 23-25 August 2016 at Nagoya University, Japan (Satellite site, 23 August 2016, University of Fukui, Koyoto City). If anyone knows of any start-up, higher education or IT conferences in Japan or nearby I could attend at the same time (or anyone who would like a seminar or workshop), that would be good. Last year I attended ICOFE 2015 in Hong Kong on the way to ICCSE 2015, but this year ICOFE 2016 is earlier and ICCSE later. Flights from Sydney to Osaka (ITM), Kansai (KIX) and Central Japan (NGO) go via Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, Cairns, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Brisbane, Nouméa and Shanghai.
It is very frustrating to go though the many lists of conferences looking for suitable dates and locations. as an example, the International Conference on E-Learning and E-Technologies in Education (ICEEE), in Kuala Lumpur, September 6-8, 2016 looks interesting, but what are the flights like from Japan?
