The 8th Asia Research Node Symposium on Humanosphere Science —jointly with —The 2nd International Conference on Environment and Sustainable Development (October 29, 2023 at Hasanuddin University, Indonesia and online)

更新日: 2023/10/29

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),  the 4th one in Nanjing, China in collaboration with Nanjing Forestry University (NFU), the 5th one as ONLINE  event due to the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and travel restrictions, and the 6th one as a joint online program of “LAPAN-Kyoto University International Symposium for Equatorial Atmosphere“. Last year, the 7th symposium was held online with the Indonesian Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) with the aim of understanding the current status of both countries in scientific activities to achieve sustainable society.

ARN serves as a hub connecting the ASEAN-Japan research network through its joint laboratory in BRIN, Indonesia, as well as an opportunity for various research institutes of Japan to access ARN’s overseas research facilities. This year, Kyoto University ASEAN Center, in collaboration with HAKU (the alumni association of former international students from Southeast Asia), will co-host the 18th Southeast Asia Network Forum (18th SEA) with the 2nd International Conference on Environment and Sustainable Development (2nd ICESD) to be held at Hasanuddin University in Makassar, Indonesia, on October 28 and 29. The 8th ARN Symposium, also jointly organized with the 2nd ICESD, will be held on October 29 at Hasanuddin University, coinciding with the 18th SEA, to further strengthen and expand the international collaborative research network in the Southeast Asia region. This ARN Symposium will provide an opportunity for face-to-face as well as online exchanges to promote academic exchange in the post-coronal era. The symposium will be divided into Session 1 (Atmosphere and Energy) and Session 2 (Materials and Environment) to discuss the latest science and technology in related scientific fields that contribute to the creation of a “Sustainable Humanosphere” will be discussed.
