BACKGROUND AND SCOPE


Regional Science plays a more and more important role in these decades featured by broadening, deepening, and speeding up of globalization. The enhancement of knowledge and technologies asks for more suitable techniques in regional science. Furthermore, the changes brought upon the need for people from various fields that were not involved in Regional Science before, rendering the field truly multi-disciplinary. Initiated as a field of human geography, it windsup including people from varying disciplines such as engineering, planning, economy, geography and environmental studies.In a multidiscipline field such as Regional Science the exchange of ideas and research within the field is deemed to be necessary. It is this multi-disciplinary approach that helps to facilitate new theoretical insights for tackling regional problems. Itfosters better codification of methods and exchange of frontier ideas. The combination of knowledge of an industry and knowledge of theory is inevitable if it is to establish credibility. For without it, efficient communication is restricted.


With recent trend in globalization and cross border activities, promoting international collaboration is essential. Asian regional science organizations currently lack of such alliance and exchange of ideas and research. This joint seminar is set upon with the aim to serve as a platform for cross-fertilization of ideas among scholars and policy makers. In particular, the exchange of ideas and researchamong Asian countries and regions is promoted. This will definitely accelerate the development of regional science and benefit all regions in the globalizing world.
