THE 6TH IASPEI / IAEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM:
THE EFFECTS OF SURFACE GEOLOGY ON SEISMIC MOTION
AUGUST 2021, KYOTO, JAPAN

IMPORTANT NOTICE – CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the ESG6 Symposium Organizing Committee has reevaluated the holding of the ESG6 symposium. We have decided to postpone the ESG6 symposium and hold it from August 30, 2021 at KYOTO TERRSA, in Kyoto, Japan. The duration of the postponed ESG6 symposium will be between 3 and 4 days. We are planning to enable online presentations in addition to face-to-face presentations. Details of symposium will be announced on a later date.
The deadline of extended abstract is also postponed until January 31, 2021. The web page for submission of extended abstract will be opened by late August, 2020, while the web page for online registration on a later date. We are planning to make a new announcement regarding the opening of these two pages.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused due to these changes and we would appreciate your cooperation for the ESG6 symposium.
