Call for Papers Now Open

CONFERENCE THEME: Sustaining the Future
For more than a decade, sustainability has emerged a global issue for business and industry, government, and academia. Historically, sustainability has been associated with environmental concerns such as the energy crisis and global warming. Today, however, it is recognized that social/economic justice is equally important to achieving a sustainable future. Thus, issues such as poverty, hunger, education, health care, and access to markets should be a part of the evolution of any comprehensive sustainability paradigm. ACSEE 2011 will address these various dimensions of human sustainability.
Professor June Henton, Dean of Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences and inaugural chair for the Asian Conference on the Social Sciences (ACSEE's parent) in her letter of introduction to the 2010 conference called for scientists from around the globe to meet and share our respective outlooks and collective wisdom on a critical issue of common concern – the pursuit of a sustainable world.”
This academic conversation, which of course has never ceased, was continues through this year’s conference, as we again invite scholars from around the world to address questions and search for solutions to the complex issues surrounding sustainability.
It is a sincere hope that attendees will use this time together, not just for intellectual discovery and discourse, but to establish a common vision and to motivate each other to do our part in the creation of a better world.
