VENUE

The symposium will be held in Muroran city in Hokkaido, Japan. The symposium venue is the Muroran City Lifelong Learning Center "Kiran". The word “Muroran” is derived from the Ainu word “Mo - Luerani” and means “small, downstream”.

This city has a mortar-like topography centered on the port of Muroran, and as the name implies, it is a town with many slopes. The city has a population of 84,727 and a group of plants such as Nippon Steel Co., Ltd. and Japan Steel Works Co., Ltd. are located around the port, making it a representative of Hokkaido's heavy chemical industry and port city. In addition, recently, the scenery of the factory group at night has attracted attention as a "factory night view", and with the light up of the Swan Ohashi over the Muroran port, it creates a night view as if it is inside a jewelry box.
