Urban safety and environmental management are challenges for any country in the world today. Scientists, researchers, academics and politicians from universities, institutions, governments and societies are working together to find new solutions to these global issues. Recognizing the importance, International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) at Tohoku University, and International Center for Urban Safety Engineering (ICUS) at Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo (UTokyo) are co-organizing “The 16th International Symposium on New Technologies for Urban Safety of Mega Cities in Asia (USMCA2017)” during November 26-28, 2017 in Sendai, Japan, as a side event of International Disaster and Risk Conference 2017 “World Bosai Forum.” The USMCA has been held for 15 times in different cities in Asia, and this will be a good opportunity to see current conditions of the coastal areas affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
