On behalf of the organising committee of the Deep Mixing 2024 Yokohama Conference, we are delighted to invite you all to the conference scheduled to be held in Yokohama, Japan, in December 2024. The theme of the conference is 'Information and Communication Technology and Sustainability in Deep Mixing'. The deep mixing method was developed 50 years ago, and thereafter, advancements have been made. The deep mixing method used currently has been possible owing to the continuous research and development, allowing us to design and execute reliable ground improvements using this method. Meanwhile, the information and communication technology wave has also reached the Deep Mixing world, affecting everything from soil investigation and design to execution. Additionally, sustainability presents critical challenges. We could reduce CO2 emissions by using less cement, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals. However, the traditional themes of QC/QA, technology development, and applied research are also important. Our conference programme aims to emphasise on these issues and is designed to motivate collaboration, innovation, and discovery with researchers and practitioners worldwide.

Japan is a unique country in every imaginable way, including its culture, food, climate, geography, and history. Along with these pleasant backgrounds, we await to welcome you with the hospitality of our people. Yokohama is one of the biggest port cities and the second most populous city in Japan after Tokyo. It is one of the core metropolitan cities, with a metropolitan population of 43.5 million. Yokohama was, after all, the site of the first gigantic project with a marine construction machine in the mid-1970s. It was carried out at the Daikoku Pier in the Port of Yokohama and is still in use as quay walls. Additionally, as a host city, Yokohama has much to offer the tourists, with a diverse range of attractions. We look forward to welcoming you, one and all, to our beautiful and exciting city in December 2024.

Sincerely yours,
