The international community’s response to population growth and development challenges over the next decades will greatly affect on the quality of life of present and future generations. Action to maintain the natural resources and promote the science and technology to humanity and prosperity in general aspect will be particularly crucial.
The world’s population, now about 7 billions, is growing rapidly. Many of the resources on which future generations will depend are being depleted at alarming rates and pollution is intensifying, driven by wasteful consumption, the unprecedented growth in human numbers, persistent poverty, and social and economic inequality.
Indonesia is one of the large countries in the world with 245 million people, has great potency in the several areas such as agriculture, forestry, marines, renewable energy and human resources. Sustainability concept should be involved during the utilization of these resources to achieve prosperity among Indonesia citizens. A sustainable development would improve the quality of human life, which then could be accessed by all individual citizens and future generations. Researchers as agent of innovation could play important and significant contribution to implement these concepts not only during the research activities but also in the application. In order to attain that purposes, the collaboration of multidisciplinary scientist are strongly needed. Indonesia Student Association in Hokkaido (PPI-Hokkaido) which is consist young talented research in the numerous area such as science, engineering, environmental, forestry, agriculture, fishery and social sciences has high motivation to participate in developing new idea and concept, new design technology for human need prosperity among Indonesia citizens.
Here, PPI-Hokkaido through the 12th Hokkaido Indonesia Scientific Meeting (HISAS 12) tries to fulfill their passion in contributing the nations’ future. In this meeting, all participants who are mostly young researchers from different point of view will exchanges their ideas and research experiences to promote better solution for Indonesia’s development.
Theme : Science Development for Humanity and Prosperity
=To communicate the research progress under sustainability frame work and exchange ideas across
=To build holistic view of scientific and technological development under sustainability framework
=To contribute for current Indonesia’s development.
=To enhance networking and collaboration between Indonesian and International community.
Keynote presentations will be done by invited speakers:
1. Sunitz Tanaka, Professor at Environmental Science Development-Hokkaido University.
2. Toshikazu Kawaguchi, Assoc. Professor at Environmental Material Science
Graduate School of Environmental Science-Hokkaido University
3. Dr. Eng. Khoirul Anwar, Assistant Professor
Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology – JAIST
a. Oral Presentation
Research presentations will be carried out orally by accepted presenters in panel system. The numbers of presented research are expected to be 30 to 40 presentations. Each presenter will be given 15 minutes of time allocation, 10 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of discussions. There will be parallel rooms which whom the presenters will be grouped into their research field. The grouping is not supposed to hinder the participants to look on the presentations from other fields since they will be freely move to other groups and encouraged to do so. In addition, presenters may bring their research poster. Posters will be put on panels during the coffee break. Participants can ask for detailed information while enjoying coffee and tea.
Note: All presenters should present their own results of study instead of research plan/proposal.
Oral presentations are divided into three sessions according to the research and study fields.
Session 1: Natural Sciences and Agriculture including Fisheries and Marine science
Session 2: Environmental Management and Social Studies
Session 3: Engineering and Information System Development
