The 3rd JSCE-CCES Joint Symposium Online

★The 3rd JSCE-CCES Joint Symposium Online

On the occasion of the centennial of the founding in 2014, JSCE started a new chapter in communication with the Chinese Civil Engineering Society (CCES); both societies agreed upon jointly holding a symposium, which started in 2016. Since then, every two years, CCES and JSCE have held the symposium taking turn hosting it. The first symposium was held at the headquarter in Tokyo, hosted by JSCE, and the second one was done at Tongji University in Shanghai 2018, hosted by CCES. In view of those successful experiences, the third one will invite experts in the fields of hydraulic engineering, river engineering, and coastal engineering. They will discuss disaster risk mitigation and prevention, climate change adaptation, river maintenance, coastal conservation, remote sensing, and exchange views and ideas to tackle the challenges and issues that they are facing.

In addition, we will report the current status of flood disasters that occurred in China, Germany, the United States and other areas this summer. The series of flood disasters reminds us of the 2019 heavy rain disaster that Japan experienced and awakens a sense of crisis. These disasters occurring in around the world can be viewed from a global perspective to develop countermeasures in international cooperation. We may be better to start up preparing for next natural disasters. Let's share views and ideas with those experts.

We look forward to your participation.
