The WIDE Project is made up of more than 100 loosely bound organizations including various corporations and universities. In recent years working groups have been set up under various research themes. Our work carried out by over 730 researchers in Japan, collaborating with foreign researchers from all over the world. This is the "WIDE Internet", a shared research base that brings distant project members together. Operated through repeated experimentation and demonstration, the WIDE Internet provides a connection between members for sharing and discussion of information on a daily basis.

Host City - Hiroshima

Hiroshima, the host city for the 76th IETF Meeting, is a center of peace, industry and culture in Western Japan. A modern city of roughly 1.2 million people, Hiroshima is one of only three Japanese cities (the others being Tokyo and Kyoto) to be included in "The Cities Book", the Lonely Planet's guide to the world's top 200 cities.

Wikipedia and Wikitravel both provide useful outlines of the city as a starting point.

The following video offers a short introduction to the city.
