Call For Papers

We are pleased to announce that this year’s event will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 25-27, 2017 in Hiroshima, Japan. The event will be held shortly after the 72nd Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Remembrance Ceremony. All early bird registrants will be treated to a special guided tour of Hiroshima Peace Park and the shrine island known as Miyajima — both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Contemporaries tend to define sustainability as environmental issue; however, it is important to take a holistic perspective that embraces the critical relationship between ecological sciences and humanities. This is evident as human communities as well as their diverse biological and cultural heritage are increasingly threatened by mounting environmental and societal problems from climate change and exploitation of finite resources to the inequities and human costs of unsustainable practices and technologies.

Our shared biosphere and rapid globalization ensure no country is immune from another’s problems and risks, which means a collective and multidisciplinary approach is essential for integrating environmental and cultural sustainability. With the theme of ‘Resilience’ the conference will promote a critical understanding of the innovative and organic approaches from the humanities and social sciences toward sustainability.

Full papers are welcome, but not required. Registered participants with an accepted abstract and/or refereed full paper will be published in the Proceedings (ISSN 2188-6622). Oral, poster and virtual presenters shall be included in the Proceedings.

We welcome submission of 250 words in English by Friday, June 2, 2017. Click here to submit your proposal today:
