The IUSAM was firstly held in The University of Tokyo in 1996, which was sponsored by several prestigious collages and universities in Asia such as mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Russia and Philippine. The IUSAM is hosted in turn by the sponsor universities annually since then. It has become an annual event for teachers and students majored in urban planning, geography, architecture and engineering.
