New Information


The 60th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Japan

  • March 5 (Tue.) – 9 (Sat.), 2013
  • Shizuoka Convention & Arts Center (Granship Shizuoka)
  • Ikeda 79-4, Suruga-ku, Shizuoka

The 60th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of Japan (ESJ60) in 2013 will be held at Shizuoka Convention & Arts Center as the venue. The last ESJ annual meeting held in Chubu district was the 53rd meeting in Niigata, in 2006, and this meeting will be the first ESJ annual meeting held in Shizuoka prefecture in the same district. Shizuoka prefecture extends wide from East to West. For those who have visited Izu, Hakone, and around Mount Fuji, it may be the first visit to Shizuoka City. Since the meeting is held to commemorate the 60th anniversary, we hope to welcome many participants and provide opportunities to have active presentations and discussions for the progress of ecological science.

The Convention venue is nicknamed Granship Shizuoka, and has the appearance of ship. It is located near JR Higashi-Shizuoka station, which is next to JR Shizuoka station and has 3 minutes distance by the Tokaido Line. You can reach the venue in a short time from the center of Shizuoka City. Since a wonderful view of Mount Fuji can be seen in a fine day from the venue and its surroundings, you will be able to have a good rest, viewing Mount Fuji in its winter garb of snow. You can also move to the city center immediately by JR train even after the workshops at the late time. We hope you can enjoy the taste of Shizuoka and activate exchanges of research topics and ideas after discussions at the venue.

All members of the organizing committee are trying to prepare a fruitful meeting in conjunction with the annual meeting planning committee. We hope that many ESJ members will be able to join the meeting.
