In the past five years, we have successfully organized a series of international symposia on Southeast Asian Water Environment. These symposia attracted numbers of researchers, policy makers, NGO workers, and graduate students in the world, where the participants exchanged impressive and invaluable body of knowledge concerning environmental issues in Southeast Asia.

Research Center for Water Environment Technology (RECWET) in the University of Tokyo (UT) and Southeast Asian Center for Water Environment Technology (SACWET), joint center of Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and UT, in cooperation with the Faculty of Industrial Technology, Institut Teknologi Bandung and Centre for Environmental Studies, Institut Teknologi Bandung(ITB), are pleased to announce the Sixth International Symposium on Southeast Asian Water Environment, scheduled to be held in Bandung, Indonesia from 29-31 October 2008. The purpose of this Symposium is to provide a forum for discussion and exchange among researchers/practitioners in Environmental Technology and Management and related areas from the Asian Region and to promote interaction among researchers from Asia-Pacific countries, Japan and other parts of the world. We do hope that, through the Symposium, a strong network or partnership with active local agents will be established, and our colleagues in Southeast Asia will learn more from the experts of other countries to protect the environment of the region.

On behalf of the Symposium organizing committee, we would like to invite interested researchers/experts to send their contributions/papers to the Symposium and actively disseminate this announcement to potentially interested people/organization.
