The conference will address interdisciplinary practices across the social sciences, and between the social sciences and the natural sciences, applied sciences and the professions. Plenary speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers in the social sciences, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations. All are encouraged to register and attend this significant and timely Conference.
Participants are also welcome to submit a presentation proposal either for a 30-minute paper, 60-minute workshop, or jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues. For those unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual participation is also available.
We encourage all presenters to submit written papers to The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, a fully refereed academic Journal. Virtual participants may also submit papers for consideration by the journal. All Conference participants who have finalized their registration will receive a complimentary online subscription to the journal. This subscription is valid until one year after the conference end date.
