Message from the host university

Welcome to ICoME2020!

We are excited to host ICoME 2020 at Konan University in Kobe, Japan. Established in 1951, Konan University is a private university that serves just over 9,000 students. The University has eight faculties, fourteen undergraduate courses in addition to various graduate programs and a professional school of law. Taking advantage of being a medium-sized university, Konan places emphasis on learning support and extracurricular activities.
ICoME 2020 is scheduled to be held in Kobe, a major city in western Japan located in Hyogo prefecture which neighbors Osaka and Kyoto. A popular tourist destination with a rich history of multicultural influences also known as economic and cultural centers in the Kansai region, Kobe is the perfect city as the backdrop for the theme of this year’s ICoME 2020 “Diversity education in ICT advanced society.”
We warmly welcome you to Konan in Kobe to discuss diversity education in ICT and its impact on current trends, contributions, and future implications for a better tomorrow.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Kobe!

This video is an introduction to Konan University from a student perspective. It was created by a group of student volunteers from Konan University. Students collaborated online to make this original video from concept to production while balancing the demands of distance learning and deadlines. Due to campus closures, students used available resources and their creativity to introduce the highlights of Konan University to the participants of ICoME2020. Students from Konan University send their best wishes from Kobe to all ICoME2020 participants.
