Sustainability has emerged as the most important global issue for business, industry, government, and academia. Join us in Osaka to discuss the issues of our time and search for common solutions.
The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners is proud to announce the Third Asian Conference on the Social Sciences, at the Ramada Hotel, Osaka, Japan to be held from May 3-6 2012.
The Asian Conference on the Social Sciences 2010 and 2011 hosted a combined total of more than 600 academics and thought leaders from around the globe in a celebration of interdisciplinary study in the social sciences. In 2012 we hope to build on the conversations and partnerships started in the previous two years, and to forge new relationships as we again encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.
This year's conference will again include a variety of presenters representing a wide range of social science disciplines, 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
