Thankful address from chair Prof. Takafumi Noguchi.

Dear participants in RCCS,

I really appreciate all of you for participating, giving lectures, making presentations and discussions, and experiencing Japanese culture in Nagasaki. We were so glad to welcome more than 250 participants from 23 countries all over the world. Some scenes of conference were reported in a lot of newspapers and televisions. Several photos will soon be uploaded and linked from this web site. We could fortunately visit Gunkan Island on the first day. I hope that you were definitely excited to have a look at the extraordinarily deteriorated reinforced concrete buildings and some of you have already started planning research works on how to repair, strengthen, regenerate and conserve those buildings and the island. Your valuable inputs are absolutely necessary for us to propose a strategy, a framework and methods for them. Please send your comments to info-rccs@jci-net.or.jp. The reinforced concrete structures with historical and cultural value will rapidly increase in number in the near future. We have to regenerate and conserve those structures even under severe environmental conditions with keeping their value for the future's generation, which will be the greatest challenge for us. RCCS in Nagasaki is just a beginning. We look forward to seeing all of you again in the future to discuss on the regeneration and conservation of such concrete structures. Thank you very much again for coming to Nagasaki, Japan. I wish you a great successful research and a happy life.

Sincerely yours,
Takafumi Noguchi
Chairman of the organizing committee of RCCS
Professor at the University fo Tokyo
