Call For Papers

Welcome to the 2nd Asian Conference on Peace, Humanitarian Aid and Service (PHASE 2018). This international, peer-reviewed event will be held from August 4-5, 2018 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel Hiroshima. PHASE is being organized alongside the 5th Asian Symposium on Human Rights Education (SHARE 2018) and the 3rd Conference on Sustainable Business, Energy and Development in Asia (COSDA 2018).

These events will precede the 73rd Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Remembrance Ceremony. All registered participants will be provided with a special guided tour in English of Hiroshima Peace Park as well as an optional, ticketed tour to Miyajima the Shrine Island – both Peace Park and Miyajima are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

About PHASE 2018


While natural disasters may seem to be increasing in frequency, devastation and loss of life, the simple truth is that earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, mudslides, tornadoes, droughts, wildfires and other natural phenomena, occur as frequently today as such calamities happened one hundred years ago. The difference today, however, is that the rise in the global population and urbanization of areas and regions simply means that more people will be affected when a natural disaster occurs. In addition, advances in media technology and information sharing have made it possible for both natural disasters to be watched in real time, such as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the subsequent nuclear disaster in Fukushima.

Not only has media and technology improved warning systems and emergency services, but also data collection and research has improved the tracking of disasters. Despite advancements in technology, building construction, equipment and training and preparedness, there is still difficulty in implementing and integrating disaster response and management resources effectively.

How can technology be applied more effectively to predict, prevent and prepare for natural and man-made disasters? What changes in infrastructure, building codes and civil engineering could help avert disasters or reduce the loss of lives? What role, if any, does climate change play in disasters? What advancements in public health could augment the role of emergency services? How can advanced countries train developing countries to respond to disasters?

With the theme of Leading the Way, we welcome proposals of 250 words in English by Friday, June 8, 2018.
