The staff of the Department of Urban Studies and Management has participated in all the three sub-committees of the conference. In particular Dr. Doan attended the Urban Environment subcommittee with a presentation on "The impact of Golf Course on the Natural Environment of Megacities in Vietnam".

MSc. Dang Nguyen Thien Huong participated in the Urban Health subcommittee and simultaneously joined the Japanese Student Union in the local research program (study tour).

The Vietnamese team members were highly appreciated by the organizers for the quality of their workshop papers, responsible engagement in scientific activities as well as external foreign affairs on the sidelines of the conference, especially the useful contribution of the Vietnamese delegation in consolidating, developing, and expanding the urban research network between cities in Southeast Asia and Japan. From this cooperation MSc. Dang Thien Huong Nguyen was invited to Yokohama City University to join a research practice in one year, and other lecturers of the Department of Urban Studies and Management will participate in this research practice in the following years.
