Call for Papers

Abstract submission deadline 30 June 2014 (Extended)


The fifth ICAIOS conference will be held on November 17-18, 2014 at the campus of Islamic State University (UIN) Ar-Raniry in the City of Banda Aceh, Indonesia. The conference will be organized in cooperation with the research project “The Aftermath of Aid: Assessing the Effectiveness and Sustainability of Post-Disaster Reconstruction in Aceh, Indonesia”, a collaborative research project between ICAIOS and the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) - NTU, Singapore. 

Taking a step further from the dynamics beyond reconstruction examined through “Social Recovery” in the 4th conference, this conference will assess the effectiveness and sustainability of post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery. The focus of the conference will be on how sciences, both natural and social sciences, contribute (or did not so), to human efforts in seeking a better and safer life in post-disaster and post-conflict communities. ICAIOS invites quality papers and panel proposals from original research that address these issues in post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery in Indonesia and other regions. Comparisons from regions affected by 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami are especially welcome as we will have the 10th commemoration of the catastrophe this year.     

The November 2014 conference will particularly discuss the following sub-theme: 


(1) Assessment on the effectiveness and sustainability of post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery; 

(2) Knowledge production and management from post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery; 

(3) The role and the possibility for dialog between natural and social sciences for better and safer life; 

(4) The role of history, culture, tradition and religion in sustaining post-disaster and post-conflict recovery; 

(5) Gender, representation, participation, and governance for effective and sustainable post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery;

(6) Socio-economy, environment, and natural resources management in post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction and recovery;

(7) Media and communication sciences for effective and sustainable disaster risk reduction.

We also welcome special panels. All research papers on Aceh and its connections and comparisons with Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean regions more broadly will be considered for inclusion. Extended abstract(s) of 300 to 500 words.
