The International Symposium on Earthquake -induced Landslides will be held in Kiryu, Japan, on November 7-9, 2012. This symposium is being organized by the Japan Landslide Society (JLS).
The 2011 disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake was at the greatest scale that we have ever experienced. We have to learn about the experiences and adopt them to our future disaster managements. During the symposium, the scientific reports on the recent activities by the Earthquake-induced Landslides Research Project in the JLS will also be made, and it will provide us fruitful information on the related topics.

ABSTRACT: The Niigata region is known in Japan for landsliding at high frequency. Recently, slope failures were taking place at different places in the region as a result of heavy rainfall, rapid snow melting and other factors. This paper introduces some of these landslides and gives a brief discussion on what has been done subsequently.
