Postponement of 3rd GLP Asia Conference (4th May 2021)

We decided to postpone the 3rd GLP Asia Conference due to the continued global spread of COVID-19. New tentative dates are 14th to 17th September 2021. We will inform you about the details soon. With regard to your registrations, you can rollover your registration to apply to the postponed 3rd conference to be held in Sapporo (14th-17th September 2021) or request a refund. We will individually contact to those who have already paid the registration fee.

Welcome, Again (4th May 2021)

3rd GLP Asia Conference 2021
Hazards, Disasters and Land Science: Towards Asian and Global SDGs for Land Systems
Sapporo, Japan
14th–17th September 2021

Once again, on behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to participate in the 3rd Global Land Progamme (GLP) Asia Conference that will take place in Sapporo, Japan, from 14th to 17th September 2021, exactly one year later from our initial plan.

We do hope that the difficult situations will be settled by September 2021. In case of continuation of the situation, we will have the 3rd GLP Asia Conference online. We encourage young scientists to prepare full paper to be submitted to Young Scientist Awards by using this extra time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are carefully observing the ongoing situations of the coronavirus (COVID-19) to minimize the impact on our conference. So far, there is no governmental guidance for large-scale gathering to be conducted in September.  We are not going to cancel the conference. However, conference style might be changed (online conference) or dates might be postponed. We will update the information on our website.

Welcome (Initial Statement)

3rd GLP Asia Conference 2020
Hazards, Disasters and Land Science: Towards Asian and Global SDGs for Land Systems
Sapporo, Japan
15th–18th September 2020

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to participate in the 3rd Global Land Progamme (GLP) Asia Conference that will take place in Sapporo, Japan, from 15th to 18th September 2020.

GLP is an interdisciplinary community of science and practice fostering the study of land systems and the co-design of solutions for global sustainability. The GLP also takes a role of a leading research programme under the Future Earth which is a global network of scientists, researchers, and innovators collaborating for a more sustainable planet.

The 3rd GLP Asia Conference will be hosted by GLP Japan Nodal Office and Taipei Nodal Office, which will provide opportunities for sharing and exchanging state-of-art knowledge and experiences in land science with colleagues from various background. The conference will highlight issues of a wide range of land change researches with special attention to hazards and disasters from geological, hydrological, atmospheric and biological events/incidents to agricultural, ecological, industrial, and technological malfunctions. The conference will cover  natural and anthropogenic hazards, sustainability, vulnerability, risk management, adaptation and mitigation, awareness, education, monitoring and modeling of various land systems.
Topics of interests include, but not limited to:

  • Disaster risk assessment, management, adaptation and reduction for climate-sensitive sectors such as forestry and agriculture
  • Community-based disaster management
  • Connectivity and feedback of land systems across multiple temporal and spatial scales
  • Ecosystem and biodiversity under various natural and anthropogenic pressures and hazards
  • Urban risk, built management, and infrastructure design
  • Policy framework of environment and disaster management
  • Disaster mitigation and risk reduction using natural (green) infrastructure
  • Monitoring and evaluation of climate-related risk management
  • Climate extreme on land processes, biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Foods, water, nutrients and energy securities on changing land system under disaster risk environment
  • Post disaster recovery issues
  • Sustainable resource use and protection/conservation
  • Assessment of environmental hazards to both humans and ecological systems
  • Statistical models, methods, databases, GIS, remote sensing, early warning systems, and monitoring technologies related to hazards and disasters
  • Discussion and development of effective warning and educational systems for risk management
  • Resilience against disasters
  • Management of landslide, liquefaction, tsunamis, storms, floods, and other types of hazards
  • Climatological hazards, hydrological hazards, earthquake hazards, volcanic hazards, glacial and snow hazards
  • Dissemination, education, outreach, and teaching related to hazards and disasters

We invite the submission of session proposals (until 31st January 2020), which will be reviewed by experts. The submission deadline of high-quality abstracts will follow the session acceptance. We encourage session proposals by young scientists.

We look forward to welcoming you to the city of Sapporo, Hokkaido, in September 2020.
