The International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences is an international, interdisciplinary event that examines the nature of disciplinary practices, and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of ‘real world’ applications. It also interrogates what constitutes ‘science’ in a social context, and the connections between the social and other sciences. The focus of presentations range from the finely grained and empirical, to wide-ranging multi-disciplinary and transdisciplinary practices, to perspectives on knowledge and method.

The 2013 conference, held in Prague, Czech Republic, saw over 250 delegates representing over 45 countries.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia addressing Interdisciplinary Social Sciences through one of the following themes:
* Social and Community Studies
* Civic and Political Studies
* Cultural Studies
* Global Studies
* Environmental Studies
* Organizational Studies
* Educational Studies
* Communication

Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. Proposals are reviewed monthly, and new phase deadlines appear regularly on our website.

Registrations with accepted proposals are invited to submit to The Social Sciences Collection of journals, comprised of the following titles:

The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences: Annual Review
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Organizational Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social and Community Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Educational Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Civic and Political Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Global Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies
The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Communication

If you are unable to attend the conference, you may still join the community and submit your article for peer review and possible publication, upload an online presentation, and enjoy subscriber access to the journal.
