Welcome to the website of the International Conference on Social Science Research. In 2010, the Conference will be held at the New Orleans Hilton from Thursday, September 23rd through Saturday, September 25th.
This interdisciplinary conference draws together faculty, research scientists, and professionals from the social sciences, and provide them with the opportunity to interact with colleagues from the same field and from other, related fields. Cross-disciplinary submissions are particularly encouraged as is participation by international scholars. The disciplines represented will include:
· Anthropology; Cultural Studies:
· Area Studies (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin American, North America);
· Communication, Journalism and Media Studies;
· Economics and Management;
Criminology; Public Administration; Law; Urban
· Environmental and Health Sciences;
· Psychology, Cognitive Science, Behavioral Sciences;
· Political Science; Peace Studies: International Relations;
· Race, Gender, Ethnicity;
· Research Methods – Quantitative and Qualitative;
· Social Welfare; Social Work; Education Policy;
Participants are welcome to submit a paper proposal to present either a 30-minute paper presentation, or to jointly present a 90-minute colloquium session. We try to organize parallel sessions into Topical Interest Groups, reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. The type of papers presented include: research (qualitative or quantitative), theoretical articles, as well as papers that deal with application, best practices, and case studies.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the meeting, presenters are able to receive feedback from researchers from a different academic discipline, often bringing up ideas or concepts that might otherwise be overlooked in a discipline specific silo. It is a presenter’s conference and we strongly encourage people to attend all three days of the conference. The conference registration fee includes a plated lunch each day of the conference, as well as an opening night reception, providing attendees an opportunity to meet and get to know each other.
These conferences are now held annually, in cities in North America. Previous conferences have been held in New Orleans, Orlando, Vancouver, and Nashville. Future meetings are scheduled for Orlando and Las Vegas.Student registration rates are $300, and faculty registration rates are $375.
