The 1st International Conference on Asian Marine Geology (ICAMG) was held in Shanghai, China, in 1988, and it has been held every four years since. The 2nd meeting was in Tokyo in 1992; the 3rd in Cheju, Korea, in 1996; and the 4th in Qingdao, China, in 1999.

These conferences have given researchers good opportunities to exchange ideas and new information and to plan for future collaboration. The 5th conference, which will be held January 13–18, 2004, in Bangkok, Thailand, will be the first to take place in Southeast Asia and will provide a wonderful opportunity to disseminate up-to-date scientific knowledge of Asian marine geology. We sincerely invite you to participate in this conference by bringing your ideas and your research to share with others.
