Message from Chairmen

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the "International Workshop on Lifetime Engineering of Civil Infrastructure", taking place in Yamaguchi University, Japan, from November 9th(Wed) to 11th(Fri), 2005.

The workshop will provide a focused international forum to discuss how civil infrastructure systems such as bridges, highway networks and sewer networks can be maintained in good condition during their whole lifetime. The first two days of the workshop will take place at the Conference Hall in the Faculty of Engineering of Yamaguchi University, in Ube City. On the third day there will be a technical excursion to the historical samurai town Hagi in Yamaguchi Prefecture.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Ube in November.

Yours sincerely,

Ayaho Miyamoto
