Welcome to the 12th Indonesian Regional Science Association (IRSA) Conference. The conference will be held on 2-3 June, 2014 in Makassar, the capital of South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia and hosted by the Faculty of Economics, Hasanuddin University.
The conference is the annual event of IRSA and will be a venue for regional scientists and researchers of various different disciplines from Indonesia and beyond to share research findings and discuss current topics on the regional aspects of various issues. We invite submissions of papers and posters on all areas of regional science including any areas in the social science that has spatial or regional dimension. We also invite organizations to submit proposal for sessions relevant for the regional science community and regional development policies.
Makassar also is gateway to Eastern part of Indonesia and entry point to an adventurous tour to the Tana Toraja highlands, deep in the fertile plateaus of Sulawesi, or also known as Celebes. The unique Torajan culture, including their animistic burial rites call it Rambusolo, makes this region one of the most fascinating wonders in Indonesia. Your visit will be a memorable one.
