[1] The 6th edition of the International Conference on COUPLED PROBLEMS 2015

        By Mr. Mizuo Inukai, Chief Research Engineer, IISEE

I participated in the sixth edition of the International Conference on Computational Methods for Coupled Problems in Science and Engineering (COUPLED PROBLEMS 2015) in May 18 through 20, 2015.  The Conference is one of the Scientific Conferences and took place once in 2 years since 2005. This time it was held on the Conference Center, San Servolo Island, Venice City, Italy.

                                       Please see the Newsletter attached on page 1.

[2] Latin American E. E. Course - Reports on Kansai Study Trip

          (1) Mr. Francisco Javier VALLES UROQUILLA (El Salvador)

I am very pleased to have had this opportunity to participate in this Latin American Earthquake Engineering Course since I’ve been learning varuable things from  each expert’s experiences in related fields.  Especially, it was very impressive that we could visit many places in Japan including Kobe.

                                       Please see the Newsletter attached on page 2.

          (2) Ms. Yolanda Elizabeth VAQURAQNO CATIVO (El Salvador)

In our visit to Kobe on last June 4th, I found it very impressive the level of awareness of municipal authorities about the topic of the constructions in the city; they count with laws and professionals, to ensure that buildings are safe against the possibility of any disaster.

                                       Please see the Newsletter attached on page 2.
 
          (3) Mr. Mauricio Rene CHORRO (El Salvador)

The past June 3rd to June 8th of this year the Latin American Earthquake Engineering Course had chance to make a trip to Nagoya, Kobe, Kyoto and Tokyo.

                                       Please see the Newsletter attached on pages 2&3.

 
          (4) Mr. Nilton Reynaldo FERREL ZEBALLOS (Peru)

Five-day study trip to Kansai (Nagoya, Kobe, Kyoto and Tokyo) enabled us to understand many things:
We learned the tenacity, strength and perseverance of a man like Professor Nobuo Fukuwa of Disaster Mitigation Research Building of Nagoya University, and the dissemination of experiences and lessons learned in the disaster at the Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation in Kobe.

                                       Please see the Newsletter attached on page 3.

[3] Colloquium, General Meeting & Friendship Party

        By Mr. Takashi Yamashita, Head of IISEE Administration Division

The third colloquium, which is a seminar consists of presentations by the training participants, took place in IISEE for two days on Thursday, May 28 and on Friday, May 29.  On the first day the participants of the Earthquake Engineering Course presented the outline of their individual study reports, and on the following day the participants of Seismology Course and Tsunami Disaster Mitigation Course followed suit.
