Conference Theme: "Power"

Power as a commodity has challenged the minds of social scientists and philosophers while its exercise has always fascinated historians. From classical thinkers' works such as Aristotle's Politka or Machiavelli's Il Principe through modern figures who manipulate power in the media, like Silvio Berlusconi or Rupert Murdoch, to the vast networks that support major heads of state, power has been a necessity to some or like an aphrodisiac to others. The dynamics of power and its associations with wealth and status now shape the contemporary world more visibly than ever. It is a research challenge to all fields of the social sciences to offer some explanation of its magnetism and its mechanisms. We expect this theme to excite a number of stimulating research paths, and look forward to their outcomes as we gather in Osaka in 2015.

The organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of inter/disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. Submissions are organized into the following thematic streams:

-Anthropology, Archaeology, Cultural Studies and Humanities
-Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences
-Computational Social Science
-Cultural and Media Studies
-Economics and Management
-Education and Social Welfare
-Demography, Human Geography and Population Studies
-Ethnicity, Difference, Identity
-Globalization and Internationalization
-Immigration, Refugees, Race, Nation
-Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Gender
-International Relations and Human Rights
-Journalism and Communications
-Natural, Environmental and Health Sciences
-Politics, Philosophy, Ethics, Consciousness
-Politics, Public Policy, Law and Criminology
