Prof Chihiro Yoshimura

Topic: Enhancing Sustainability and Resilience: Case of a Shallow Tropical Lake

Dr. Yoshimura received his doctoral degree of engineering from Tohoku University, Japan in 2002. After graduation, he had been employed as a postdoctoral researcher atSwiss Federal Institute for Environmental Science and Technology, Switzerland (2002–2004), the University of Tokyo, Japan (2004–2005) and University of Yamanashi, Japan (2005-2006). Currently, he is an associate professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology. His research field mainly is related to water quality engineering, aquatic environmental management, and biogeochemistry. In these fields, He has over 15 years of research experiences in Asia, Australia, Africa, and Europe, and he is also one of the leading scientists in the world in water environment management as he has published over 100 publications in peer-reviewed international journals. As a project coordinator, he currently leads international researchers in aiming to develop a water environment analytical tool and establishing an environmental conservation platform for Tonle Sap Lake, the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia. 

Dr Hul Seignheng

Topic: Outreach of Scientific Research Outputs through establishment of Environmental Conservation Platforms: Case study of SATREPS Project

Dr. HUL has a strong motivation in doing research on water quality under the current pressure of human and climate change. His interest site of research is mainly in Tonle Sap lake of Cambodia and the Mekong River. His current challenges are to outreach the research outputs to policy makers and the simple public. For this reasons, he is interested very much in learning more and more on the science communication. He has been trained in many workshop and events, however share and continuous learning remain always his motivation. For instance, the project, which he is working on ‘establishment of environmental conservation platform for Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia’, is one the biggest project he has been doing and he has learnt a lot from the activities and the partners of Tokyo University. His main task in the project as coordinator is to assist and help researchers to collect a correct understanding of the lake and outreach to policy makers such as Tonle Sap Lake authority, Ministry of environment, Ministry of water resources and Meteorology, and the public and generals.

Prof Shigeo FUJII

Topic: Water Management Practices Comparison in Several Developing Countries

Dr. Shigeo Fujii is a professor at Graduate School of Global Environmental Studies, Kyoto University. He is also a distinguished adjunct professor of Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), and an IWA fellow.  He obtained B. Eng. in 1978, Ms. Eng in 1980, and D. Eng. in 1990 from the Department of Sanitary Engineering, Kyoto University. His professional carrier started in 1980 at Faculty of Engineering, Kyoto University, and worked at AIT during 1991 – 1993, and at Ritsumeikan University during 1993 – 1998. In 1998, he came back to Kyoto University as an associate professor, and was promoted to a professor in 2001. His research field is environmental engineering such as sanitation studies in Asian developing countries, behavior analysis of Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) in environment and development of their treatment methods, restoration of littoral areas by macrophytes, water pollution mechanism analysis of lake and their management design, water quantity and quality management in river watersheds.

Prof Marc BIDAN

Topic: The role and impact of information technologies in the preservation of tropical lakes: the case of collaborative platforms

Marc Bidan is full Professor at the engineering School of the University of Nantes (Polytech). He is working on Digital transformation, IT management, Risk management and IT environmental impact such as Green IT approachs. He is member of lab Lemna, of AIM and AIS association (past president). http://www.univ-nantes.fr/site-de-l-universite-de-nantes/m-marc-bidan--518355.kjsp

Prof Satoshi TAKIZAWA

Topic: The current issues on intermittent water supply in Asian countries

Prof. Satoshi TAKIZAWA obtained B. Eng. in 1983 from the department of Urban Engineering, the University of Tokyo. He then obtained his Ms. Eng in 1985 and Dr. Eng from Graduate School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo. He began his professional career as a research associate at the Department of Civil Engineering, Nagaoka University of Technology, then moved to the Public Works Research Institute, MOC as a senior sesearcher.  In 1992, he became an associate professor in graduate school of engineering, University of Tokyo, and was promoted to a full professor in 2006. Between 1997 and 1999, he had been seconded to Asian Institute of Technology.

His main research and contribution are in the field of Urban Water Systems and Urban Water Management, and Groundwater Resource Management in Urban Areas which assesses the contaminant of groundwater like arsenic, iron, ammonia, and organic matter; Water Treatment Technologies, the removal of nitrogen and organic matters, etc, using Membrane Filtration, and Water Management in Asian Cities. In addition, he is also the editor of the book Groundwater Management in Asian Cities
