International Conference: Innovative research in a changing and challenging world16-18 May 2012 – Phuket Thailand Conference website: www.auamii.com/conference.html
Traditionally research has been rigidly confined to a single academic discipline. This is important for maintaining its research vigour. However it can also create a discourse of research hegemony which can stiffen creativity and innovation. This conference promotes diversity and unity in research on an interdiciplinary basis.
