The official closing date for submission of abstracts is something of the past and we are pleased to announce that we received almost 500 abstracts from authors representing 56 countries. We have received 40 applications for panel sessions to date. The opportunity to set up a panel session for your institution is still available. For more information, click here. A panel session provides an excellent opportunity for your institution to sponsor or host a meeting on topics aligned to the Forum’s theme and sub-themes.
The conference theme “Transforming global relations for a just world” covers, among others, global inequalities as it relates to governance, patterns of production and consumption, cultural exchanges, quality health and education, climate change and adaptation, and human rights and social justice. The action-oriented nature of the theme will allow the Forum to demonstrate the relevance of social science for public policies and social intervention.
This is also an invitation to make use of the early registration discounts for WSS Forum 2015, keeping in mind that you will gain much from this significant international event on the calendar for research, scholarship and knowledge production in the social sciences and humanities.
