The global economy and technological developments in the industrial revolution era 4.0 require the readiness of human resources who not only have superior competence but are also able to answer the problems around them with science and technology. Such conditions have been realized and anticipated by all parties including academics, researchers and observers of education. The demands of these competencies have changed the views of students on how to learn, the communication system and interact with the surrounding environment. One of them is the implementation of STEM (science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) as a foundation for the provision of success. Skills developed by students through STEM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond. STEM empowers individuals with the skills to succeed and adapt to this changing world, including changes due to natural events.

Natural phenomena and the geographical position of countries in the ring of fire pathway that have the potential for natural disasters have brought about the development of technology to reduce the impact of natural disaster risk reduction (DRR). Early Warning System, disaster mitigation and information technology are developed in the context of reducing and preventing the emergence of a larger disaster impact. Such conditions have become global issues and gave initiate to research ideas that are expected to be a solution to human well-being and survival.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science – Yogyakarta State University invites researchers, educators, students, and practitioners to share ideas in the Sixth International Conference on Research, Implementation, and Education of Mathematics and Science (6th ICRIEMS). The theme of the 6th ICRIEMS is “Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) and Education for Disaster Risk Reduction and Mitigation.” The scope of this conference covers all topics but are not limited to in the field of mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics education, chemistry education, physics education, biology education, and science education.
