LAPAN-Kyoto University International Symposium

for Equatorial Atmosphere

The 6th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science

(The 448th Symposium on Sustainable Humanosphere)

Date: September 20-22, 2021

Full Online Meeting

更新日: 2021/09/17


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.

In 2016, Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) launched a program called the Humanosphere Asia Research Node (ARN) to strengthen the hub functions of international collaborative research and fostering talented people who expand the field of Humanosphere Sciences internationally. ARN integrates our various facilities and human networks in ASEAN region and Japan for consolidating the international collaborative research on “Sustainable Humanosphere”. We have held a series of symposia on Humanosphere Science: the 1st ARN Symposium in Penang, Malaysia in collaboration with Universiti Sains, Malaysia (USM), the 2nd one in Uji, Japan,  the 3rd one in Taichung, Taiwan in collaboration with National Chung Hsing University (NCHU), and the 4th one in Nanjing, China in collaboration with Nanjing Forestry University (NFU). In last year, the 5th symposium was held as an ONLINE event without physical attendance due to the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and travel restrictions.

The Equatorial Atmosphere Radar (EAR) is a VHF atmospheric radar located in Kototabang, West Sumatra, Indonesia. It has been operated by collaboration between RISH and National Institute of Aeronautics and Space of Indonesia (LAPAN) since 2001. RISH has conducted a collaborative research program by using the EAR and its related facilities since 2005 to enhance scientific research activity conducted with the EAR and associated facilities. To exchange information on a wide range of research results from the EAR and related facilities during 20 years, and to further strengthen the international network, RISH planned to organize this symposium. This is a joint program of “LAPAN-Kyoto University International Symposium for Equatorial Atmosphere“, “The 6th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science”, and “INternational Conference on Radioscience, Equatorial Atmospheric Science and Environment (INCREASE)”. The symposium committee welcomes you to this symposium on September 20-22, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and travel restrictions, the symposium will be held online.

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. It will cover scientific and technological advances in the fields of Atmospheric Science, Environmental Science, Space Science, Material Science, Plant Science, Entomology, Microbiology, Ecology, Forestry, Wood Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Architecture, Electromagnetic Engineering, Agriculture and other related sciences contributing to creating “Sustainable Humanosphere”.
