Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere

The 5th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science

(The 436th Symposium on Sustainable Humanosphere)

Date: December 22-23, 2020

Venue: Symposium goes Online

The environment surrounding humans is rapidly changing with complicated interlinkages, threatening sustainable development and healthy living. There has been an increasing demand for reliable future projections based on an accurate understanding of current conditions of Humanosphere, and for the presentation of measures for solving the problems. To establish the Sustainable Humanosphere, international collaboration and expansion of Humanosphere Science on a global scale is important.

Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) launched a program called the Humanosphere Asia Research Node (ARN) in 2016. This program aims to strengthen its function as a hub for international collaborative research and foster innovation in the field of humanosphere science, with the ultimate goal of delivering solutions to global-scale problems. ARN integrates our various facilities and human networks in ASEAN region and Japan for consolidating the international collaborative research on “Sustainable Humanosphere”. To further strengthen the international network, RISH planned to organize this symposium.

The symposium committee welcomes you to “The 5th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science” on December 22-23, 2020. Due to the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and travel restrictions, the symposium will be held as an ONLINE event, without physical attendance. The symposium aims to share the concept and recent advances of Humanosphere Science, thereby fostering students and young researchers who will sustain and expand the new science.

The ARN Symposium will cover scientific and technological advances in the fields of material science, plant science, entomology, microbiology, ecology, forestry, wood science, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, architecture, space science, atmospheric science, environmental science, electromagnetic engineering, agriculture and other related sciences contributing to creating “Sustainable Humanosphere”.
