See you again at the next Localisation conference!
deadline for abstract submission: June 5th ( Sun ), 202 2 deadline for application of the summer schools : June 7th(Tue), 2022, 5:00 p.m. (Japan time). notice of acceptance (contributed presentations) : June 24th (Fri), 2022 deadline for registration (on-site participation) : July 8th (Fri), 2022 notice of acceptance (on-site participation) : July 11th (Mon), 2022 deadline for registration (on line participation) : August 17th(Wed) , 2022
Localisation 2022 is a satellite conference of 29th International conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT29) which will be held as a hybrid format on August 18th to 24th, 2022. The on-site place is Sapporo Convention Center in Sapporo.
“Localisation” is a series of conferences which dates back to 1984 when “Localization, Interaction, and Transport Phenomena” was held in PTB Braunschweig, West Germany. It is often held as a satellite conference of LT every 3 years. The last one was in 2020, which was originally planed to be held in Sapporo but, due to the COVID pandemic, held online instead. (Its proceedings have been published as a special issue of Annals of Physics, see https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/annals-of-physics/vol/435/part/P1) The topics covered in Localisation 2022 include
Anderson localization and transition in disordered systems (electronic, photonic, phononic, random graphs and others)
Effects of disorder in topological insulators, semimetals, and graphene
Quantum Hall transitions
Localization and topology in disordered non-Hermitian systems
Machine learning approach to disordered quantum systems
Localization phenomena in artificial quantum systems such as cold atoms and spin ices
Date : August 25 - 30, 2022
August 25th (Wed) is only for registration.
August 28th (Sun) : All the university facilities including the lecture hall are unavailable due to an even "Hokkaido marathon".
morning and evening: online poster session
Format : Hybrid (On-site & Online)
Online participants : free
On-site participants those who are neither students nor postdocs : 10,000 Japanese yen * you need to pay the fee by cash at the on-site registration desk.
On-site participants those who are students or postdocs : free

Venue & General Information:
From Sapporo city centre (Odori & Susukino area) :
The Nanboku subway line is convenient. Get off at Kita 12-jo station. Exit the station and enter Hokkaido University through the Kita 13-jo gate. It is then about 10 minutes walk to the Frontier Research in Applied Sciences building.
From Sapporo Station on foot:
It will take approximately 20 minutes.
From New Chitose airport (the main airport in Hokkaido) to Sapporo:
There are several hotels near Hokkaido University and many hotels in Sapporo city centre. Since many tourists visit Sapporo during the summer months, we highly recommend that you book a hotel at your earliest convenience upon you don't have a problem on VISA.
For practical information about visiting Japan, see the "General Information" page on the LT29 website.
Information below based on the status as of June 25th, 2022. It may be changed in future depending on the situation of COVID-19.
1.Conditions for entry to Japan
Everyone is required to present a negative result of a pre-departure COVID test, taken within 72 hours of the departure time of your flight, before boarding a flight to Japan.If the country you are staying in before travelling to Japan belongs to the Blue or Yellow groups (see links below) neither on-arrival COVID test or quarantine will be required. Otherwise, an on-arrival COVID test and a quarantine of 3 days will be required.Please check carefully the conditions for entry, accepted types of tests, required documents, and all other conditions, using the links below
Please read carefully the following pages:
Those who do not live in Japan and do not have a Japanese passport are currently required to obtain a VISA. With the assistance of a travel agency, we will help you to prepare the documents that are necessary for your visa application with the purpose of entry being restricted to on-site participation in Localisation 2022 in Sapporo. you are required to pay a fee of 11,000 Japanese yen, in addition to the registration fee, in cash at the on-site registration desk.
The organizers emphasize that Japan is not yet granting tourist visas to individuals. Please refrain from planning activities unrelated with scientific and or academic purposes during your visit. For example, if you include sightseeing in your itinerary, there is a possibility that your visa application will be rejected. We will take no responsibility in such cases.
Relating to the above, it is very difficult to obtain visas for accompanying persons. So, regretfully, we have decided not to accept any accompanying persons.
3.During your stay in Japan
The organizers have to ask you to wear a mask. We also have to check your temperature, and we have to ask you to use a hand sanitizer, before entering the conference hall and poster room every day. We note that in Japan, currently, most people wear a mask not only inside but also outside.
Two summer schools (hybrid format) on disordered systems will be held before and after the main conference with participants of Localisation 2022 as lecturers.
