Japan Society on Water Environment


JSWE hosts a JSWE Symposium every autumn on top of the Annual JSWE Conference in the spring so as to provide opportunities to promote research development in a wide range of fields concerning water environments and encourage communication among members. Unlike the Annual Conference, the Symposium mainly consists of sessions organized by research committees. In addition, a young researchers' session (Organo session) is conducted so as to encourage research and to foster human resources by giving doctoral research promotion awards (Organo Award), targeting students enrolled in doctoral programs.
