ISVS 5 - 2010: University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka

The 5th International Seminar on Vernacular Settlements was held at Mount Lavinia Hotel in Colombo hosted by the University of Moratuwa from 30th-31st 2010, on the theme, “Vernacular Futures: Reconstruction, Resettlement and Reproduction of Tradition”. ISVS-5 received an overwhelming response from academics and researchers interested in the Vernacular settlements and received a large number of abstracts and proposals for paper presentations. Subsequent to a tedious process of refereeing and development to full papers, ISVS-5 had 40 speakers from countries from Australia to Europe presenting their papers.
