The objective of the conference was to provide a forum for engineers, architects and scientists to discuss a broad range of research and design methods for various problems related to snow engineering. Specialists in building and civil engineering, environmental engineering, energy engineering, urban planning, and regional development as well as snow scientists were brought together for the conference. The technical sessions were in five thematic areas as follows: Snow technology and science; Building and construction engineering; Infrastructure and transportation; Housing and residential planning; Development strategy in snow countries. The 115 papers provide keys to realize more comfortable living conditions in snow countries and to overcome many problems in heavy snow regions.Many wooden and steel-framed gymnasiums collapsed during 38 aamp; 56 Gosetu ( the heavy snowfalls of 1963 and 1981). ... Of course, Kenko Hoshi probably did not know of the conditions in areas such as Hokkaido, where winters are severe and intensely cold. ... through the Sasaya Tunnel, and enter Sendai, I experience the pleasant sensation of the weather with low clouds and constantly-falling snow , anbsp;...
