Doodle apparently is translating the time to your timezone.
It is 10am Japan Time (Tentatively).

Full day.

We may be able to get spots on the main conference as well.

It is not public yet. The site still has the information on the last year.


It is going to be the 21st year of the event. It usually attracts around
2000 people.
The meeting is hosted by JPNIC and is supported by Ministry of
Communication, Ministry of Culture and Education, Ministry of Economy, Trade
and Industry etc.

If we do it on the Nov. 30 as the doodle poll is currently indicating, the
place is likely to be in Akihabara.
We have tentatively booked the place for approx. 200 people.
