Fwd: 2017 International Conference on Education and Global Studies (IConEGS 2017)

CALL for PAPERS - IConEGS 2017 @ Kyoto, Japan
2017 International Conference on Education and Global Studies (IConEGS 2017)
April 4-6, 2017, Kyoto, Japan

We cordially invite you and your colleagues to participate and submit papers to 2017 International Conference on Education and Global Studies (IConEGS 2017) that will be held at International Community House, Kyoto, Japan, on the 4th–6th April 2017. . We welcome submissions from all over the world and we encourage you to join us in Kyoto, Japan to share your research and knowledge. To submit abstracts/papers for presentation or participate as an audience member, please visit the conference website for more details. All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted manuscripts will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISSN reference, on CD-ROM support.

The objectives of the conference are:

1. Provide a platform for the researchers to seek further opinions, comments and suggestions.
2. Contribute knowledge in the fields of education and global studies.
3. Provide wider opportunities for participants to interact and create networking.
4. Deliver your research findings to global audiences.
5. Participate in a truly international, interdisciplinary and intercultural event.

The conference venue Kyoto is Japan's capital for more than 1,000 years. Kyoto was the center not only for politics, but religion, philosophy, art, culture, and cuisine. The cherry blossoms (sakura) usually bloom in the last week of March and the first two weeks of April in Kyoto (roughly between 20 March and 14 April). In an average year, the blooms peak on 1 April in Kyoto. Once they bloom, they are notoriously fickle: sometimes almost all the trees will come into full bloom (mankai) at the same time and stay in full bloom for a week or even longer. We believe that you will enjoy your stay in Kyoto. If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact us.

The IAFOR International Conference on Social Sciences - Hawaii 2017 (IICSSHawaii2017)

Dear Colleague,

The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) offers uniquely global opportunities for researchers to share and explore both theory and practice on a range of timely and relevant issues today and tomorrow.

The IAFOR International Conference on the Social Sciences – Dubai 2017 (IICSSDubai2017) is no exception. Besides the chance to enjoy the charming, beautiful and exciting city of Dubai, the event offers participants a first-class platform for presenting, exploring and sharing novel research and innovative ways of bringing social sciences theories down to earth for practical applications.

This event will take place at The InterContinental Festival City Event Centre, Dubai, UAE, from Sunday, February 26 to Tuesday, February 28, 2017.

Revolving around its macro theme, "East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery", the conference will feature Professor Donald E. Hall of Lehigh University, USA, as Keynote Speaker. We hope that the broad nature of this theme will encourage the submission of works from a variety of interesting perspectives.

IICSSDubai2017 offers much more than the social sciences. Registration includes admission to The IAFOR International Conference on Language Learning – Dubai 2017 (IICLLDubai2017), The IAFOR International Conference on Education – Dubai 2017 (IICEDubai2017), and The IAFOR International Conference on Arts & Humanities – Dubai 2017 (IICAHDubai2017), which are to be held alongside IICSSDubai2017 as part of the same event. As such the scope for interaction with internationally renowned scholars and researchers spanning different fields of knowledge is quite simply a one-off opportunity.

The abstract submission deadline is fast approaching. Please submit by November 1, 2016 to have your abstract reviewed and join IAFOR and delegates from around the world in the international hub of Dubai to share your research and knowledge in an international, intercultural and interdisciplinary setting.

***Conference Theme: "East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery"

From natural phenomena and the results of climate change to pollution and societal traumas, migrations and war, the enormous challenges that face humankind and our environment are frequently daunting and difficult to comprehend. However, with every new challenge or disruption comes the opportunity for innovation and discovery. Whether inventing new technologies, implementing innovative systems, enacting better policies, legislation, or governance, or ensuring greater cooperation and information sharing, responses are many and varied.

From incremental shift to radical change, from the local to the regional and from the national to the global, this international conference will focus on the challenges that demand a collective response. It will highlight the need to harness our abilities as scientists, policymakers, practitioners, engineers and educators to find multidisciplinary solutions in pursuit of the common goal of a sustainable world.

In conjunction with our global partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2017.

***Conference Programme

As well as being a great opportunity for meeting and interacting with some of the biggest names in the fields of Social Sciences, Language Learning, Education, and Arts & Humanities, our conferences create an intellectually challenging but friendly environment for the presentation and nurturing of new ideas, encouraging the research synergies that drive new developments and create new knowledge.

The Keynote Speaker at The IAFOR International Conference on the Social Sciences – Dubai 2017 (IICSSDubai2017) will be Professor Donald E. Hall of Lehigh University, USA.

Keynote Presentation: Interdisciplinary Education for Innovation and Change

Abstract: Whatever we may isolate as the chief global threats that we face in the twenty-first century, we have little hope of effectively responding to them without finding common ground across nations, cultures, languages, and belief systems. We cannot address global warming, HIV/AIDS, the threat of terrorism, nuclear proliferation, religious intolerance, famine, poverty, or any other social ill by our own lonely and isolated selves – either as individuals or individual nations. States often, understandably, act out of national self-interest, but none of the major challenges we face today are solvable by individual nations acting solely on that basis of self-interest, except to the extent that it is in the interest of individual nations to work together collaboratively and energetically. How then do we begin to solve our biggest and most fundamental problem of them all: the challenge of living in peace, goodwill, and with a sense of shared interests with our fellow inhabitants of the planet?

By the end of this talk I will return repeatedly to that question because I do not think that science, technology, engineering, or business alone helps us achieve that foundational goal of living in peace, goodwill, and with a sense of shared interests with our fellow inhabitants of the planet. Science will help us cure disease. Technology will allow us to communicate and travel faster. Engineering may assist us in generating new forms of energy and protecting against eroding agricultural lands and coastal areas. Business provides incentives to develop new media, new pharmaceuticals, and new ways of feeding our hungry populations. However, none of them displaces or challenges self-interest, national or personal. None of them provides the tools alone to achieve our goal of living in peace, good will, and with a sense of shared interest with our fellow inhabitants of the planet. For that, we need interdisciplinary training in the liberal arts and sciences – especially as informed by the humanities, the social sciences, and the visual and performing arts. Only interdisciplinarity can teach us how to cross boundaries comfortably, even enthusiastically. Interdisciplinary perspectives can save us from ourselves and the threats that are produced by a narrow reliance on science, technology, and business.
