Theme Utilization of new technology for reduction and disaster prevention of frequent slope disasters
On Friday, June 14, 2019 at 11:00 – 17:00
          at 10:00 – 10:50 General meeting of members
          at 11:00 – 16:50 Symposium
          at 17:00 – 19:00 Party
Venue Hitotsubashi University, Hitotsubashi Lecture Hall
c/o National Center of Sciences (National Institute of Informatics)
Address: 2-1-2, Hitotsubashi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo Tel: +81-3-4212-3900

(1) 4 minutes on foot from Jimbocho station on Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line,
     Metropolitan Mita Line, or Metropolitan Shinjuku Line (Exits A8 / A9)
(2) 4 minutes on foot from Takehashi station on Tokyo Metro Tozai Line (Exit 1b)
Purpose  The advancement of ICT technology is outstanding, and it is being used in various fields and is about to bring about a major change in the social environment, such as the elimination of the labor shortage accompanying the aging population combined with the diminishing number of children and the creation of new businesses. Such a situation is no exception in the construction field, and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism is aiming to create and promote an attractive construction site through i-Construction, aiming to improve the productivity of the entire construction production system through the full utilization of ICT technology.

   On the other hand, also in terms of natural environment, it is required to deal with disasters that occur over a wide area frequently and simultaneously due to extreme weather phenomena such as heavy rain disasters and frequent earthquakes.

   Even in the field related to slope disaster prevention, creating a topographical map by laser profiler has become common since about ten years ago at the time of disaster and observations of slope changes using satellites have also been conducted. In addition, in recent years, progress has been made in technology, such as the interpretation of landslide topography using AI technology.

   In this symposium, we would like to be able to respond quickly to frequent slope disasters, and for that purpose we would like to proceed with discussions in order to achieve early restoration, reconstruction, and disaster reduction, leading to further technological innovation, productivity improvement, and damage mitigation. Accordingly, we would like to ask you to provide topics such as examples of relatively recent technologies such as design, methods of construction, and even enlightenment activities to residents during normal times from understanding of the current situation at the time of disaster. And we would like to share the future issues such as speeding up, upgrading and rationalization of slope disaster response.
