Invitation to the 8th SEAWE

A series of international symposia on Southeast Asian Water Environment has been successfully organized since 2003. These symposia have 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.

We are pleased to announce the Eighth International Symposium on Southeast Asian Water Environment, scheduled to be held at Phuket, Thailand from October 24 to 26, 2010. This symposium is organized by Research Center for Water Environment Technology (RECWET) in the University of Tokyo (UT) and Southeast Asian Center for Water Environment Technology (SACWET) in Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), in cooperation with the Prince of Songkla University (PSU). Cooperation with several relevant research projects is attempted so that this event is more attractive with a lot of integrated idea and hot information.

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 Asian Region and to promote interaction among researchers from Asia-Pacific countries, Japan and other parts of the world. In addition, an interesting technical tour is specially prepared by PSU on the first day of the symposium, which is expected to promote intercommunion among participants as well as introduction of local situation of water environment management.

We do hope that, through the Symposium, a strong network and partnership with active local agents will be established, and our colleagues in Southeast Asia will learn more from the experts of other countries to manage the water environment of the region. In the last symposium, “Award for Asian Young Professional on Water Research” was established with a support from the Ohgaki Memorial Scholarship. The Award is given to distinguished young professionals who demonstrate the most outstanding and promising performance in the symposium.

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.
