About OPODIS 2023

OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge concerning distributed computing and distributed computer systems. All aspects of distributed systems are within the scope of OPODIS, including theory, specification, design, performance, and system building. With strong roots in the theory of distributed systems, OPODIS now covers the whole range between the theoretical aspects and practical implementations of distributed systems, as well as experimentation and quantitative assessments.

Travel and accommodation information for conference attendees.

By train

From within Japan, it is easy to reach Tokyo by bullet train (shinkansen). Google maps provides reasonably good advice for connections. Coming from Western Japan, the easiest is to leave the shinkansen at Shin-Yokohama Station and change to the newly opened Tōkyū Shin-yokohama Line.

By plane

Tokyo has two major international airports: Narita and Haneda.

  • Haneda airport (HND) is the larger of the two airports and better connected for local transport (e.g., Keikyū line). Most domestic flights and multiple flights to Europe and Asia land at Haneda airport.
  • Narita airport (NRT) is farther away but this is aleviated by the Narita Express train that stops at "Musashi-Kosugi", as well as the Keikyu lines that run between the two airports and stop at Shinagawa station. Most flights to North America land at Narita airport leaving less choice.


Tokyo offers a large variety of accommodations for all budgets and preferences. We recommend booking a hotel close to one of the stops on the Meguro line, Oimachi line, Ikegami line, or Toyoko line. Areas convenient for commuting to the venue are near the following stations: Oimachi, Meguro, Jiyugaoka, Musashi-Kosugi, Futako-Tamagawa. Other alternatives include: Shibuya, Ebisu, Shinagawa, Gotanda, JR Kamata. The OPODIS banquet will be located near Meguro station
