ECSS 2017 : The European Conference on the Social Sciences 2017
Call For Papers
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in the Social Sciences. As with IAFOR’s other events, ECSS2017 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
The European Conference on the Social Sciences will again be held alongside The European Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment. Registration for either of these conferences will allow participants to attend sessions in the other.
The conference theme for ECSS2017 is "East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery", and the organisers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.
Submissions are organised into the following thematic streams:
Anthropology, Archaeology, Cultural Studies and Humanities
Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences
Computational Social Science
Cultural and Media Studies
Economics and Management
Education and Social Welfare
Demography, Human Geography and Population Studies
