About ICLEE Conference

About ICLEE Conferene

The International Consortium of Landscape and Ecological Engineering (ICLEE) was established in 2004 to publish “Landscape and Ecological Engineering” through collaboration among societies primarily in East Asia in the fields of environmental conservation, management, and restoration, with the goal of contributing to the development of related disciplines and human communities living in harmony with the natural environment.

Since 2005, ICLEE has published the international journal “Landscape and Ecological Engineering” with the aim of protecting and improving the environment in the face of biodiversity loss, desertification, global climate change, and other environmental conditions. The journal presents original papers, reports, reviews, and technical notes on all aspects of conservation, restoration, and management of ecosystems. Its scope is not limited to purely scientific approaches, but welcomes technological and design approaches that provide useful and practical solutions to today's environmental problems. The coverage is relevant to students and researchers at universities and institutes, while its emphasis on the practical application of research will interest all decision makers dealing with landscape planning and management problems. Thanks to the efforts of ICLEE, the journal has been marked in the SCI-E (Science Citation Index Expanded) list since 2010. 

ICLEE conferences have been held to promote the exchange of academic outcomes among ICLEE members and the communities. The 14th ICLEE conference will be held in Kitakyushu-shi, Japan from October 4 to 6, 2024, commemorating ICLEE’s 20th anniversary, with the theme of “Progress in Landscape and Ecological Engineering — Perspectives of the Next 20 Years of ICLEE”. We are looking forward to the participation and cooperation of researchers from the fields of landscape ecology, landscape planning, ecological engineering, and all of the related studies.

Abstract Submission


ICLEE 2024 offers an excursion, including a visit to the Hibikinada Biotope and nature restoration fields along the Ongagawa River, near Kitakyushu City, on the afternoon of October 4th. 

The Hibikinada Biotope, one of the largest in Japan, spans 41 hectares and was designated as one of 'OECMs' in 2024. It was developed on a former waste disposal site in the Hibikinada area. The uneven terrain from the waste landfill has fostered various environments, such as wetlands, freshwater ponds, and grasslands, supporting diverse organisms. Visitors can observe a range of aquatic insects and plants in the wetlands from an observation deck.

We will also visit two nature restoration sites near the Ongagawa River. The first site is the Ongagawa Fish Passage Park, which has received the Good Design Award and the JSCE (Japan Society of Civil Engineers) Civil Engineering Design Prize. The park was designed to improve the fishway and surrounding environments at the estuary weir of the Ongagawa River through workshops with residents, researchers, consultants, and government officials. The once monotonous, concrete-covered space has been transformed into a diverse environment featuring waterfront, grassland, and tidal flats. The second site is 'Nakashima,' an island-like topography in the middle reach of the Ongagawa River. The land was excavated to increase flood frequency, restoring and conserving floodplain wetlands with reed colonies.

20th Anniversary Celebration Party

On 5th October, the 20th Anniversary Celebration Party will be held at GYMLABO in the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech). This facility has been used as a gymnasium in Kyutech since 1965. In 2022, it was renovated as a co-working space in collaboration with Kyutech faculties, staff, students, and companies. Prof. Keitaro Ito (Kyutech / Chair of Japan Association for Landscape Ecology) has directed the total design of this project by considering the history and original landscape of Kyutech and this region. We hope you enjoy the food and beverages and exchanges with people from different countries in GYMLABO. We are sincerely looking forward to your participation.

Direction and Accommodation

Kokura, which surrounds JR Kokura station, is the most convenient city to access the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech). From Fukuoka city to Kokura, it takes 15 minutes by Shinkansen and 90 minutes by JR Kagoshima line. JR Kokura station is connected to JR Hiroshima, Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo stations too. The closest station from Kyutech is JR Kyūshūkōdai-mae station. It takes 5 minutes (2 stops) from JR Kokura station. But note that rapid and express trains do not stop here; only local trains do. If you come from JR Hakata station by Kagoshima line, it is convenient to take rapid or express trains to Tobata station and transport to local trains.
