    The International Choice Modelling Conference (ICMC) brings together leading researchers and practitioners from across the world and across different areas of study, including but not limited to transport studies, marketing decision making, environmental valuation, and health economics.

    After two UK conferences in 2009 & 2011, followed by Sydney, Australia, in 2013, Austin, Texas, USA, in 2015 and Cape Town, South Africa, in 2017, the ICMC steering committee is pleased to bring the conference to Asia in 2019. The conference will be held in Kobe, Japan and will be jointly hosted by three universities in Japan. Toshiyuki Yamamoto (Nagoya University), Junyi Zhang (Hiroshima University) and Nobuhiro Sanko (Kobe University) are pleased to organise the conference.

     

    The 2019 Conference will be held at the Kobe International Conference Center in Kobe, Japan from Monday 19 August to Wednesday 21 August 2019. Kobe is an international port city nestled below the beautiful Rokko mountain range and fronted by a tranquil blue inland sea. People from more than 130 countries live there and provide Kobe with a colourful, vibrant and cosmopolitan character. Kobe is easily reached by air and rail. Three airports are located nearby, and railway network including Shinkansen (Japanese high speed train) is excellent. This is why Kobe has hosted more than 4600 international conventions to date.
