    Dear colleagues and friends,

    It is our great pleasure to welcome you to attend the 13th SEGJ International Symposium being held from 12 to 14 November, 2018 in Tokyo. Since 1990, the SEGJ International Symposium has provided unique opportunities to share fundamental ideas and the latest advances in applied geophysics, and to expand and deepen interdisciplinary networks.
    The theme of the 13th symposium encompasses the role of applied geophysics in the sustainable development of human societies. All interested scientists and engineers are invited to join a diverse group of specialists for stimulating discussions in face-to-face meetings. We welcome the contribution of younger colleagues.
