If you are going to splurge anywhere in Greece, Thessaloniki is the place to do it! Greece's second largest city, and its cultural capital, Thessaloniki (also called Salonica) lets you indulge in fine food, colorful sweets, ultra-chic shopping, an energetic nightlife and more concerts, art shows and events than you can keep track of. What really enhances Thessaloniki's hip atmosphere, however, are the enduring symbols of its glorious history, from the White Tower on its cafe-lined waterfront all the way up to the Byzantine walls, just above the Upper Town (Ano Poli), an enchanting neighborhood of pretty traditional houses set on winding, peaceful alleyways. Down from them are impressive constructions like the 4th-century Cathedral of Agios Dimitrios (the largest in Greece), the enormous Roman Rotunda, and the sculpted Arch of Galerius in Kamara, thronged with students from the world-famous Aristotle University and many other Thessaloniki's universities.

Papers related to all areas of Accounting, Banking, Business Ethics, Communication and Media, e-Business, e-Government, e-Learning, Ecology, Economics, Education, Engineering, Environment and Life Sciences, Finance, Gender Studies, Globalization, Human Resources, IT, Law and Legal Studies, Leadership, Logistics, Management, Marketing, Political Science, Psychology, Security Studies, Social Sciences, Social Work, and Sustainable Development are invited for the above international conference, which is expected to be attended by authors from nearly all parts of the World. People without papers can also participate in this conference, and they are invited to serve as session chairs or discussants, as well as informal contributors to the academic quality of this international event.

To submit your full paper or abstract for this conference, please email it as an attachment (acceptable formats are .doc; .docx; and .pdf) to GreeceConference@ISISWorld.org. All conference submissions will be double blind peer-refereed by members of the Conference Review Committee.

FULL PAPERS submitted by MAY 10th will be considered for publication in one of the double-blind, peer-refereed Journals Sponsoring 2013 ISIS-Greece International Multidisciplinary Academic Conference or the refereed Conference Proceedings.

Authors of ABSTRACTS submitted by MAY 30th, and which would meet the selection criteria of the Conference Review Committee, will be given the chance to present their work in progress at the ISIS/IAABR Conference in Thessaloniki, Greece. These abstracts will be published in a separate section of the refereed Conference Proceedings. If the authors decide to complete their work in progress after the conference, they could submit their COMPLETED PAPERS by November 1st, 2013, in order to be considered for publication in a later issue of one of the double-blind, peer-refereed ISIS Journals.

Authors, who could NOT travel to Thessaloniki, Greece for visa or other reasons, may PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY in the ISIS/IAABR conference, and these authors will have the same publication opportunities, as the regular conference presenters.

The basic registration fee is 295 EUR (250 EUR for virtual participants via Skype) and includes an opportunity to publish your accepted paper in one of our publications, one printed issue of the journal or Proceedings CD containing your paper, an Official Certificate for International Conference participation, the luncheon, coffee breaks, an international forum to present your paper and attend other presentations, listing of your paper in the program, an opportunity to meet and network with your international colleagues in a friendly environment and explore the history and culture of Greece and the Greek Islands.

Call for Papers

This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring how new technologies are re-calibrating our notion of time, re-configuring our ideas of space and, as a result, how they are re-envisioning our understanding of the self and its relation to others.

From smartphones to tablets, from Apps to Twitter, the new technologies and the social media to which they have given rise increasingly occupy our time and mediate our relationships. They encourage us to develop fast friends, guide us as to locate fast food, even helps us to find places to practice fast yoga. They keep us ever in the presence of others, always connected, ever accessible. We find ourselves amongst those who are rushing to catch up on what they have always already been behind on starting. It is a world in which speed has become the measure of all things, in which silence is rare, and in which solitude has at one and the same time become hard to find and difficult to escape. How are these experiences reshaping the way we perceive the world, see ourselves and relate to others?

We invite colleagues from all disciplines and professions interested in exploring and explaining these issues in a collective, deliberative and dialogical environment to send presentation proposals that address these general questions or the following themes:

1. Speed

- How are our conceptions of time being recalibrated?
- What has happened to our concept of leisure?
- Have we lost the ability to look, to linger, to be bored? With what consequences?
- How has our new conception of time affected rituals and relationships? What affects has our new conception of time had upon our rituals and relationships?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the new cult of speed? What are we hurrying up for? What are we hurrying to escape?
- What is the impact of the "slow movement"?
- We seem in a rush in order to save time. But for what are we saving time? Can time be saved?
- What is the relationship between speed and mortality? Do our new notions of time better prepare and equip us to deal with our mortality? Are we attempting to outrace and outwit time?
- What are the relationships between acceleration, efficiency and effectiveness?
- Traditional metaphors of time no longer seem adequate. Time no longer seems to be like a river or an ocean. What new metaphors seem apt to capture 21st century notions of time?
- How has the new conception of time affected our perception of duration, anticipation and waiting? What has it done to patience?
- What new experiences does speed afford us? What experiences does it undermine?
- How do we conceptualize and measure slowness in the 21st century?

2. Silence

- What is the value of silence?
- Is silence any longer a possibility? Is it achievable?
- In what ways are the new media changing our experience of silence? Have we lost language-free/sound-free space? Have we wanted to?
- How are our understandings and valuing of introspection, reflection and thought being reconceived in a world filled with sound?
- It seems the new media at one and the same time are making it ever harder to find silent moments and ever more difficult to escape. How can these simultaneous yet opposing experiences be explained?
- How does hearing differ from listening? Are we witnessing the evolution of listening with the rise of new technologies?
- What does silence sound like? Can silence be conceptualized? How can it be captured in words? How is it captured in music?

3. Solitude

- How does solitude differ from loneliness? How does it differ from boredom?
- What are the effects of our new experiences of being 'alone together'?
- What are the conditions for the possibility of solitude? Can these conditions be met in the 21st century?
- What underlies our desire for solitude?
- When do we seek solitude? Why do we sometimes fear it?
- How is new media encouraging solitude? How is it undermining solitude? How can these opposing effects be explained?
- How is our experience of travel and of vacation changing in response to a world always populated with others and other tourists? How much are we willing to pay to experience solitude?
- How are our notions of space being reconfigured in a world where there are always others?
- In a world always already populated with others, how are creativity, imagination and innovation being reconceived?
