The International Academic Forum (IAFOR), in conjunction with its global university and institutional partners, is proud to announce The IAFOR International Conference on the Social Sciences – Hawaii 2017 (IICSSHawaii2017), part of the Hawaiian Conference Series 2017.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will act as a centre for academics, practitioners and professionals to discuss new research in social sciences. IICSSHawaii2017 will create opportunities for the internationalisation of higher education and sharing of expertise. We invite professionals from all corners of the world to develop policies, exchange ideas, and promote new partnerships with organisations and peers.
The IAFOR International Conference on the Social Sciences – Hawaii 2017 (IICSSHawaii2017) will be held alongside The IAFOR International Conference on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment – Hawaii 2017 (IICSEEHawaii2017), and The IAFOR International Conference on the Arts & Humanities – Hawaii 2017 (IICAHHawaii2017) as part of the same event. Registration for any one of these conferences permits attendance in all three within the event.
Conference Theme: “East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery”
From natural phenomena and the results of climate change, through 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 local to regional, or 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, including The University of Hawaii at Manoa, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you in 2017.
