Upcoming Event: JpGU Meeting 2013

From May 19th to 24th the Japan Geoscience Union (JPGU, 日本地球惑星科学連合) will be holding their annual meeting at Makuhari Messe near Tokyo. Just like in the past two years I will also be attending and presenting there. This year I will speak in session H-TT09 “GIS”, starting from 14:15 on Monday, May 20th. There will also be presentations by other members of my lab:

  • 15:45 – 16:00
    Koko Lwin*
    Yuji Murayama
    “Smart Data Collection and Real-time Digital Cartography”
  • 16:15 – 16:30
    Halgamage Malinda Siriwardana
    “Road Network and Transportation Facilities in the Sri Pada Mountain Area – Influences on the Flow of People Along the Trails”
  • 16:45 – 17:00
    Ronald Canero Estoque*
    Yuji Murayama
    “Capturing built-up expansion patterns in the major cities of South and Southeast Asia using GIS and RS techniques”
  • 17:15 – 17:30
    Konstantin Greger
    “Spatial Methodologies for the Analysis of Vulnerability in Urban Areas – A Case Study for Terrorism in Tokyo, Japan”

All presentations in this session are in English. This is also true for many other sessions at this conference, eve though the majority of sessions will be held in Japanese. Nevertheless, at over 7,000 participants last year the JpGU Meeting is always a good place to be for Geoscientists of all trades (from planetary sciences to oceanologists).
