RCGeoE&RCND 2020

The 12th AUN/SEED-Net Regional Conference on Geology and Geo-resource Engineering & The 8th Regional Conference on Natural Disaster


University of Yangon is hosting the annual Regional Conference Program of ASEAN University Network/Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network (JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net). In ushering the Centenary of the University of Yangon, the Regional Conference is hosted as a synergy event on Geological and Geo-resources Engineering and Natural Disaster, aiming to share current research trends and challenges, updated technology and experiences among researchers and industry practitioners working on both fields.
We, Department of Geology, University of Yangon, invites scientists and engineers in the ASEAN region including member Institutions (MIs) and Japanese Supporting Universities (JSUs) to join this AUN/SEED-Net Regional Synergy Conference. This conference provides an opportunity to present and discuss progress and outcomes obtained from several researches of the member universities, the latest issues and solutions for sustainable development in ASEAN. Furthermore, the conference can strengthen the research network among geoscientists from ASEAN universities, government institutions, industries and communities.
