Call For Papers

ACSS 2011 - International Interdisciplinary Conference held in
Osaka Japan by IAFOR in affiliation with the UNWFP, Auburn
University (USA), UFWH and other global partners. Conference
Theme: 'Sustaining the Future'. Call for Papers Now Open.

The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 1 April 2011.

ACSS 2010 was a celebration of interdisciplinary study in the
social sciences and the inaugural event was a great success. In
2011 we hope to build on the conversations and partnerships
started in 2010, and to again encourage academics and scholars
to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging
respectful dialogue. Under the continued guidance of Dean June
Henton, Conference Chair in 2010, and Programme Adviser in
2011, this international conference will again provide a
challenging, rigorous and enlightening academic environment.

This year's conference will again include a variety of presenters
representing a wide range of social science disciplines. The
speakers will be expressing divergent views, searching for
common ground, and creating the synergies that can inspire
multi-disciplinary collaborations. In developing these
relationships among ourselves, the role of the social sciences is
strengthened as we take our place at the table, along with
scholars in the STEM disciplines (i.e. science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics), in seeking solutions to the
complex issues and problems of the 21st century. I sincerely
hope that we will use this time together, not just for intellectual
discovery and discourse, but to establish a common vision and to
motivate each other to do our part in the creation of a better
world. We greatly appreciate your attendance and encourage your
active engagement throughout the conference.


Special Theme: Sustaining the Future

The conference theme is Sustaining the Future and the
organizers encourage submissions that approach this question
from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other
topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage
sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields
related to the Social Sciences, including the following streams:
