Toru Mori,
This sounds like a great initiative from Japan.
I suggest that you touch base with the Beijing LOC and ask if you can 
have access to the list of people who have submitted presentations. You 
can then contact each of them and see if they would like to present at 
your conference.

Would you be interested in having someone present the OSGeo-Live 
presentation? It provides a comprehensive, high level description of the 
state of Open Source Geospatial Software.
(You might wish to translate this into Japanese)
