Conference Theme

The conference theme for IICSSHawaii2017 is “East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery”. From natural phenomena and the results of climate change, through pollution and societal traumas, migrations and war, the enormous challenges that face humankind and our environment are frequently daunting and difficult to comprehend. However, with every new challenge or disruption comes the opportunity for innovation and discovery. Whether inventing new technologies, implementing innovative systems, enacting better policies, legislation, or governance, or ensuring greater cooperation and information sharing, responses are many and varied.

From incremental shift to radical change, from local to regional, or from the national to the global, this international conference will focus on the challenges that demand a collective response. It will highlight the need to harness our abilities as scientists, policymakers, practitioners, engineers and educators, to find multidisciplinary solutions in pursuit of the common goal of a sustainable world.

In conjunction with our global partners, including The University of Hawaii at Manoa, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in 2017.
