About the conferenc:
Traditionally research has been rigidly confined to a single academic discipline. This is important for maintaining its research vigour. However it can also create a discourse of research hegemony which can stiffen creativity and innovation. This conference promotes diversity and unity in research on an interdisciplinary basis. Phuket is chosen as our meeting place for sharing innovative research in a changing and challenging world.
