Arriving at NGO airport (Central Japan Intl. Airport or “Centrair”), the fastest way to reach Nagoya city center is by using the μSky Limited Express train. A 25-min trip brings you to Kanayama station (convenient if you are coming to the conference venue directly) or Meitetsu Nagoya (namely, Nagoya central train station; “Meitetsu” is just the name of the private railway that operates the μSky). Notice that you need some cash to buy the tickets. Currency exchange offices and ATM machines are available all throughout the airport.
Once in Kanayama station, get out through the ticket gate and search for the signs “Subway”. Follow the signs and get on the circle line (purple color, or “Meijo line”), counter-clockwise direction. The conference venue is at “Nagoya Daigaku” station. Exit 2 is the closest to the conference venue (see the embedded Google map below).

No meals are provided, a part from the lunch box and the dinner on the 10th. However, there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops around the campus. Some of them, at walking distance from the conference venue, are highlighted in the map above. A convenience store, open 24/7 and selling all sorts of things, is also highlighted above.
