This conference is held by UIN Antasari Banjarmasin collaborated with International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). The conference aims to share the experience of Islamic universities in Indonesia and in various regions of the Islamic world in their efforts to formulate a model of integration of science in Islamic universities in building its distinction and contribution. We attempt to map the formulation of models of integration of science offered by various Islamic universities in Indonesia and in various regions of the Islamic world.
Rationale The integration of knowledge has long been discussed in the Muslim world and the West. However, throughout the 2000s, the discourse of the integration of religious subjects and general subjects evolves as a paradigm in the process of transformation of the State Islamic Institute (IAIN) into the State Islamic University (UIN) in Islamic higher education (PTAI) in Indonesia. Azyumardi Azra confirmed that the transformation of IAIN to UIN is a concrete manifestation of integration of knowledge or as M. Amin Abdullah stated as "integration-interconnection" between religious subjects and general subjects.
