Program of Symposium on Representation Theory 2016



It takes approximately 40 minutes from Naha Airport to Okinawa Grand Mer Resort by shuttle bus. There is no public transpotasion which directly connect Naha airport and the conference place. The conference will not provide a transpotation between the airport and the conference. But the hotel provides free shuttle busbetween Naha airport and the hotel. The one who want to take this free shuttle have to make a reservation by calling the hotel 098-931-1500 . You can find the timetable of the free shuttles in the hotel webpage.

For recreation we suggest American Village, Aeon Mall Okinawa Rycom. If you rent a car, we suggest Sea Bridge, Life Salt, and Nakagusuku Castle Ruins (World Heritage). The hotel is equipped with swimming pool and sauna.

We expect the accommodation costs almost similar rate as the last year. We appoligize the hotel has no hot spring nor public bath. If you want to swim at the pool, please do not forget to bring your swimming wear. This hotel is a resort hotel in the middle part of Okinawa which provides nice facilities, excellent meals and a relaxing time to do mathematics.

The following is the participant list of Symposium on Representation Theory 2016. (It may take several days to reflect your rgistration.) If your name is not in the list, please contact the organizer.

If you take lunch in Naha Airport, we reccommend Airport Restaurant, which serves local foods and is quite popular among local people. However, the taste and quntaty are typically in Okinawa style, so that it will be a bit challange for you.


The hotel stuff told us that you may swim at the Sunset Beach near the American Village.

The hotel is equiped with indoor swimming poor and sports gym, which are free of charge for hotel guests. We expect strong UV in Okinawa even in this season. You may bring sun block cream and sun glasses. Don't forget your swimming suit if you want to swim.

However, the afternoon sessions and night sessions will be in 2nd floor of the hotel. We reccommend to walk to the Hineya community center, but, if you need, the hotel provides a shuttle.
