“The International Symposium on Multidisciplinary Sciences on the Earth" is to be held on Nov.18 (Tue.) and 19 (Wed.), 2014, at Takeda Hall on the Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo, Japan, under the auspice of Research Center for Science Systems (RCSS), Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS). The symposium covers a wide area of natural sciences related to the Earth such as physics, geophysics, geochemistry, geology, environmental science and life science. The goal of the symposium is to give a general overview of the recent research status of these Earth-related sciences from a wider perspective, with emphasis on its interdisciplinary aspect and the inter-relationship between different areas, eventually to give a prospect for future development in a broad context. During the two days of the symposium, we wish to consider with the audience where we, the human beings, are now and where we are going.

This symposium is the second round of the JSPS symposium of the similar style, but on a bit different topic. Last year, we held "The International Symposium on Research Frontiers on Physics, Earth and Space Science". The homepage of the last year's symposium is available at "International Symposium on Research Frontiers on Physics, Earth and Space Science."

Oral talks consist of about 12 invited talks, each of 50 min., which are given by distinguished researchers of international reputation. The topics are selected from various areas of the Earth-related sciences including seismology, volcanology, meteorology, life science, environmental science and disaster prevention, etc. The talks are of general interest, not intended for experts of a special field. The expected audience is researchers and graduate students primarily from physics, chemistry, geophysics, geology and environmental science.
