Abstract: I will discuss the asymptotic structure of asymptoically flat spacetimes in arbitrary higher dimensions. In particular, I will focus on the null infinity and then formulate the concept of the asymptotic flatness. As a result, we can show the positivity of the energy flux observed at the null infinity and so on. I also have some comments on the applications of our result to a classification and stability issues of higher dimensional black hole spacetimes. (The presentation will be prepared for non-expert audience.)
