Application for Presentation and Creation of Lecture Synopsis and its Contribution

  The application for presentation and the contribution of the synopsis are performed through the dedicated participation application system.
  The collections of papers will be distributed by CD’s and be viewed on the website (logged in with passwords and the limited viewing period).
  Color manuscripts are possible to be placed. Please understand that the contributed manuscripts are copied on CD’s and placed on the website (password management). Therefore the release date of the content of research publication especially related to patents, etc. is the one when opened on the website (scheduled at the latter half of July), not the very convention day.
  Notice: The copyright of the contributed lecture synopsis belongs to The Japan Landslide Society.
