As the chairman and on behalf of the organizing committee, I am proudly present here and delighted to welcome you all to the 1st International Conference on Innovative Research Across Disciplines, ICIRAD 2015. This conference was initiated by the Research Institute of Ganesha University of Education to be a forum for all international researchers to share and publish the results of their innovative, excellent, and robust works in the field of education, social science and humanities, as well as science and technology.
ICIRAD 2015 has received in total of 111 abstract and full paper submissions from all three categories. Through our review process, a number of 107 submissions were accepted to be presented and 37 articles were selected out of them and have successfully been published in our proceeding. The attendees are researchers, practitioners, and students with affiliations from four countries, that is, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, and The Netherlands. The conference is held on 18-19 November 2015 in Grand Inna Hotel, Kuta-Bali, together with our third national conference (SENARI III) which is the strength behind and a milestone in the initiation of our first international conference. We present four speakers representing three countries and the three conference topics; they are Prof. Zainal Arifin Hasibuan, Ph.D from Indonesia to represent the national education standards body (BSNP) and also the association of Higher Education of computer science (APTIKOM), Prof. Harry Aveling from La Trobe University Australia, Prof. Kongkiti Phusavat from Kasetsart University Thailand, and Prof. Sariyasa, M.Sc., Ph.D. from Ganesha University of Education Indonesia. Our speakers will discuss about the current issues and policies regarding research in various fields.

This study was aimed at analyzing the rate and factors that cause the rice-field conversion, and developing a rice-field zonation model to support the subak system sustainability. This study was conducted in three districts (Kuta , North Kuta, and Mengwi districts) that form the metropolitan zone of Badung District. This study used 69 subaks as units of analysis. The collection of secondary data was done using descriptive quantitative technique and spatial analysis aided by Geographic Information System software. The results showed that in the 2002 – 2009 period a conversion of 468.34 hectare rice-field land occurred at the average of 66.91 hectare per year at the rate of 6.71%. There were 7 factors that caused the occurrence of rice-field land conversion Based on the seven factors, a rice-field land zonation model was developed which consists of 3 types. First, type I zone (36 subaks), that forms an eternal/ exclusive zone whose rice-field land can be converted in a limited way. Second, type II zone (18 subaks), is a zone whose land can be converted in a very limited way with rigid condition. Third, type III zone (15 subaks) whosenrice-field land can be converted.
Keywords: rice-field land conversion, subak sustainability
