      IGU Kyoto Regional Conference 2013: Call for abstracts
      http://www.igu-kyoto2013.org/

      Dear Colleagues,

      On behalf of the geographic community in Japan, it is our great pleasure to
      invite you to participate in the IGU (International Geographical Union)
      Kyoto Regional Conference, which will be held from August 4-9, 2013. The
      main theme of the conference is "Traditional Wisdom and Modern Knowledge for
      the Earth's Future."
      The ancient capital of Japan, Kyoto is globally recognized in association
      with the Kyoto Protocol, which was concluded in December 1997 at the Kyoto
      International Conference Center, where the Conference is scheduled to be
      held. We hope the Conference adds a new page in the history of this
      memorable venue and succeeds in enhancing global understanding, especially
      in the light of the global environmental challenges the world now faces.
      The Organizing Committee of the conference has already started to receive
      various applications, including abstract submissions, registrations, and
