Indonesia is an archipelagic country consists of more than 13,000 islands that are positioned between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. In addition to the rich marine environment, the country is also the home of a vast rainforest that hosts immense biodiversity and serves as one of the lungs of the world. The rapid industrialisation, population growth, and changes in the social situation have raised more attention to the environmental issue in this archipelago, which in turn is also connected to the global environmental sustainability. The International Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar (IISS) is an annual scientific conference that provides a unique platform for scientists, researchers, and professionals across multiple disciplines to share their research advancements and critical ideas to address the environmental issues. The conference was initiated 11 years ago by recognising that environmental problems require an interdisciplinary approach to reach a holistic solution. Every year, the conference has been attended by hundreds of participants from various disciplines of science. The upcoming 12th IISS conference will be organized on November 14-15, 2018; at Malang, East Java, Indonesia.
