The major themes of counter measure, simulation and monitoring, environmental issues, risk evaluation, mapping, education and case studies were discussed through 40 oral presentations and 42 poster presentations. In particular, the Country Report Session presented clear strategies by exchanging and sharing technological knowledge, and obtaining a scientific understanding of landslide phenomena and hazards not only locally but also on a global scale. Representatives from Japan, China, Nepal, Pakistan, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia made presentations. The field trip was also very valuable because of the individual epochs and fine weather.
