Founded in 2006, the Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Knowledge Community is brought together by a common interest in disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, within and across the various social sciences, and between the social, natural and applied sciences. For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active interest in the conference themes.
The purpose of this Award is to recognize the scholarship and promote the professional development of Graduate Students by inviting them to act as facilitators, moderators, and contributors at the conference. The Students who receive this Award have their registration fee waived, their names and biographical information appear on our website and in the printed program, and they are recognized at the Welcome and Closing sessions.
Graduate Scholars perform an important function as chairpersons in the parallel sessions. Duties include introducing the sessions, making sure sessions begin and end on time, and facilitating question and answer sessions. A basic knowledge of computer technology, data projectors, and PowerPoint application is required. Graduate Scholars are expected to attend the conference in its entirety.
In addition to promoting important discussions among fellow conference participants and potential collaborators, Scholars will also have the opportunity to present their own papers during the parallel sessions (given that their proposals have been accepted to the conference).
Due date for 12th International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences is March 26th, 2017.
Graduate Scholars are entitled to free registration and are given special recognition during the conference proceedings.
