OSAKA — Although an advisory panel to the International Olympic Committee recommended this past weekend that IOC members be banned from traveling to candidate cities, at least 11 members are expected to visit Osaka next month for a meeting of top-level sports executives.

From Oct. 13 to 16, Osaka will play host to the general assembly of the General Association of International Sports Federations, which is based in Monaco.
