Teaching Structures in Architecture
as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Stream Leader:
Dr. Bronne Dytoc, Academic Member, ATINER & Assistant Professor, Kennesaw State University, USA

The stream will be on architectural education, particularly in instruction and learning strategies or techniques for architecture structures. The stream will focus on ideas and papers that encourage discussion about the content of architecture structures courses, and more importantly, how thoughtful/innovative teaching and learning methods are able to address gaps that are typically experienced in student performance and learning engagement. Thus, this stream is more significant with regards to the scholarship of teaching and learning strategies rather than structure topics themselves.

Architecture and Work
as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Academic Responsible: Dr. Raffaella Maddaluno, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Architecture University of Lisbon, Portugal.
The objective of this symposium is to invite researchers and academics from the areas of Architecture, Sociology, Archaeology, Geography, History, Literature and Economics, to reflect on the relationship that exists between architecture and human activity in working spaces: the relationships between architectural and urban space, the nature of the work that takes place there, and the role that the worker assumes in this context. The proposals may analyse the characteristics that architecture destined to work had to adopt in its uniqueness, how it has been maintained and transformed in the case of a functional loss, how it has been recovered. Proposals may also focus on working spaces as industrial heritage.

Architecture and Representation
as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Academic Responsible: Dr. João Miguel Couto Duarte, Assistant Professor/Research Fellow, CITAD – Lusíada University, Portugal.
The aim of this symposium is to explore the relationships that develop between representation and architecture, whereby representation is understood as a means of thinking architecture, one that thus encompasses the drawing and the model, but also, among other things, text, computation, 3D modelling, photography and film, as well as architecture considered independently of its facticity.
Researchers, academics and practitioners are invited to contribute with their thoughts on the impact of the representation on understanding architecture, their observations on representation considering the fullness of its possibilities – as a design support; as a speculative instrument; as a registration of pleasure; etc. Some questions that may be examined are the definition of representational relationships; the bonds established between the representation and its object; design representational systems and their evolution; and the similarities and differences between different representational systems. With its desire for openness, this symposium encompasses first and foremost the field of architectural design, but also, among other areas, the fields of the history and theory of architectural design, the history and theory of representation, the field of philosophy, and the field of semiotics.

Anthropology and Architecture
as part of the 10th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Academic Responsible: Anjali Sadanand, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor, Measi Academy of Architecture, India.
Anthropology is the science of human behavior through time and space and manifests in the intangible and tangible, relating to culture, social norms, beliefs and invested in, other things, in the built form. Spatial organizations can be studied as an interplay of space and the social norms and lifestyle patterns that govern them. Cultures are represented in space and cultural rootedness exhibited in the resilience of certain beliefs and values that stand the test of time. Architecture participates in the expression of culture through its elements and spatial organization in the vernacular and in the urban environment. Cultural landscapes are formed by these shaped by these beliefs. Architecture and Anthropology intertwine in all typologies in architecture from a house to a working environment, and in anthropology from kinship patterns to corporate organizations. The built environment is perceived in terms of the meanings it contributes and denotes the significance of the visual and the experiential in terms of psychological and sociological experiences with man being positioned at the centre.

Higher Education in a Global World: Policy Implications in Education and Criminal Justice
as part of the 4th Annual International Symposium on “Higher Education in a Global World”
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Natasha Johnson, Educational Policy Studies, College of Education and Human Development, Georgia State University, USA.
Dr. Thaddeus L. Johnson, Criminology & Criminal Justice, Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, Georgia State University, USA.
Today’s college graduates are entering an increasingly integrated, international world. While offering a multitude of exciting opportunities, this equally presents a variety of challenges. Faculty are challenged by the responsibilities imbedded in managing and delivering globally oriented curricula. Correspondingly, higher education leaders are recognizing the need to develop international strategies for their institutions. Particularly relevant to the emerging education and criminal justice disciplines, many leaders are still developing the knowledge and perspective required to inform theory and influence practice. In the ongoing effort to expand international research, networks, and collaborative projects, it is the responsibility of institutions of higher education to create environments in which students can appreciate the complexity of global integration and develop the necessary skills to successfully navigate this sphere. International outreach and collaboration, particularly in the education and criminal justice sectors, have the potential to enrich and expand a wide array of institutional cultures. While global contexts certainly vary, higher educational leaders and policymakers face similarly pressing needs to understand the shape and scope of new trends and developments in internationalization. They are also called upon to further their understanding of specific countries and regions where opportunities to engage are currently unfolding. Therefore, the topics covered by this panel – including the ensuing implications – are useful for higher education stakeholders worldwide, specifically those in education and criminal justice, as these tenets resonate beyond the scope of any one discipline.

Applied Research & Social Innovation
as part of the 4th Annual International Symposium on “Higher Education in a Global World”
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Natasha Mrkic, Instructor & Intercultural Engagement Consultant, Langara College, Canada.

As we talk about education trends in a global context, terms such as Applied Research and Social Innovation are increasingly taking the front stage. This stream will explore growing ecosystems that combine makerspaces, work-integrated learning, and innovative educational programming frequently offering partnerships between educational institutions, community, government grants, research funds, and industry partnerships. This is an ideal opportunity to present your examples and/or research and converse with colleagues exchanging ideas that could potentially build this community of practice internationally. Academic capitalism affects all higher education institutions, and with declining education funding and pressing social issues an opportunity is created for an emerging educational system which is applied and socially innovative.

Higher Education and the Strategic Process of Internationalization
as part of the 4th Annual International Symposium on “Higher Education in a Global World”
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Natasha Mrkic, Instructor & Intercultural Engagement Consultant, Langara College, Canada.

How are we Internationalizing Higher Education? Are institutions working in isolation or in collaboration with partners from other countries? What happens to international students once they are in their host country? Do they stay or do they study and then leave? Do institutions encourage their own students and faculty to go on exchanges abroad where they learn new skills or engage in work-integrated learning experiences? We live in a “Global Village”, yet what are we doing in our local institutions to meet the educational needs of all students, staff, and the communities we serve? A sample of the numerous questions often repeated by Educators worldwide acknowledging that we have an opportunity to help create intercultural communities in which there is understanding and respect for all cultures. Join this stream to present papers that demonstrate examples, issues, lessons, challenges, institutional collaborations, and / or ideas related to higher education internationalization and / or interculturalization.

Semiotics and Theory of Language
as part of the 13th International Conference on Languages & Linguistics
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Ivan Capeller, Adjunct Professor, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil

In 1968, André Martinet edited a volume called “Le Langage” in which almost all knowledge available on this subject was presented and summarized according to the principles and methods of structural semiology and linguistics. Fifty years later, this epistemic horizon is no longer able to provide a conceptual unified paradigm combining semiotics with a broader theory of language. Somewhere in between the human and the natural sciences, does a theory of language necessarily need a semiotics as a pre-condition for its own existence? Must a theory of signs suppose Language as its axiomatical point of departure? The semiotical shift towards peircean pragmaticism and its multiple applied offsprings, such as biosemiotics and cybersemiotics, as well as the renewal of researches regarding the evolution of language as an actual biologic factor on the development of mankind, its culture and history, calls for an open debate around these issues. This session invites researchers not only from the field of semiotics and linguistics, but also from the fields of biology, paleontology, archaeology, anthropology, philosophy, history, aesthetics and cultural studies to share their findings about questions regarding semiotics, language and meaning, in their materiality as well as in their meta-reality.

International Law & Politics
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Law
Stream Leader:
Dr. Jorge Emilio Núñez, Academic Member, ATINER & Senior Lecturer, Manchester Law School, UK

Any community or population consists of people who are different in many senses. Pluralism is a permanent feature. Similar to the civil society, the international community includes several agents of very different natures (sovereign states, cultures, subcultures, religions, individuals).
Whilst the international community includes rules and mechanisms that in principle acknowledge equality of states and give central roles to non-governmental organizations and, to an extent, people (for example, European Union law), realpolitik shows clearly that impartiality in the way different international agents are considered is scattered (for example, there are some states that are “more equal” than others) and therefore, the fairness of the current world order is highly questionable.
Simply put, the symposium intends to explore a major gap in international relations, law, and the political sciences: it will be a multi-disciplinary platform for debate to the different views of territorial dispute, conflict and sovereignty offered by different sciences (law, political sciences, international relations).

Environmental Law
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Law
Stream Leader:
Dr. Kurt Olson, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor, Massachusetts School of Law at Andover, USA.

Widely recognized in the scientific community as perhaps the biggest threat to face mankind, climate change has captured the public’s attention while politicians, constrained by re-election realities, often ignore, downplay, or completely dismiss the threat. However, in this symposium we would endeavor to discuss the nature and extent of the threat, and also to address more diverse issues involving other threats to the global environment, ecological issues, and sustainability. It is our goal to make this symposium truly inter-disciplinary in terms of seeking out input from scientists, public policy experts, environmentalists, economists and others because issues around climate and the environment impact every aspect of our lives as global citizens.
To quote from Earth Under Fire, How Global Warming is Changing the World by Gary Braasch: “Let me state the goal clearly: No policy should be promulgated, no program initiated, no alliance sealed, no machine designed or built, no land use permitted, no product introduced, no law passed, no politician elected unless the action is a step forward to reduction and reversal of the effect of greenhouse gases.” Braasch published his book in 2007; tragically, few governments have taken steps to meet his challenge. Among those that have, the United States is conspicuously absent. As many of the leaders of the movement to address this most monumental of challenges have said, action to address the issue will have to come from the bottom up because politicians remain blissfully unaware of the gargantuan challenge facing humankind.
Global citizens often don’t recognize the climate change threat and others (land degradation, water shortages, invasive species, and fouling of our oceans) threatening the ecosystems on which we all depend. While public ignorance or avoidance are inevitable given the daily pressures of earning livings and caring for families, we aim to both inform the general public, increase inter-disciplinary engagement, and spark debate within the relevant communities.

Law and Aesthetics: Bodies, Power and Sexuality
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Law
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Anna Chronopoulou, Academic Member, ATINER & Senior Lecturer in Law, The University of Westminster, UK.

Much academic ink has been spilt over the relation between law and aesthetics. An aestheticized aspect of law focuses on the way in which subjectivities are constructed in the public domain. Many academic accounts from a number of disciplines have been concerned with this focus for a number of years. For instance, feminist accounts have always been concerned with issues of female subjectivities construction as up against the construction of male subjectivities. Issues of female sexuality have formed huge part of the construction of female identities and femininities. More recently, issues of race begin to provide a different perspective on the construction of female subjectivities. This stream examines the way in which femininities and masculinities are constructed, forged, formed and shaped through the dialectics of power and the dynamics of bodily representations. It puts forward a comparative approach in the way subjectivities are constructed on celluloid as opposed to the way that are constructed in the public domain.

Lawfare in Hybrid Wars to Impose Neoliberal Regimes as a Threat to the World: Critical Approaches
as part of the 17th Annual International Conference on Law
Academic Responsible: Dr. Larissa Ramina, Professor of Public International Law and Human Rights, Federal University of Parana, Brazil.
The use of the law to produce perverse effects in relation to their original vocation is not a novelty, as shown by the false humanitarian interventions. However, the contemporary trend brings sophisticated novelties, insofar as legal maneuvers replace traditional warfare without the use of force. The strategy known as “lawfare” is a kind of “hybrid war” that uses the legitimacy of the law, the actors of the justice system and the judicial process, combined with powerful media coverage committed to transnational economic interests to carry out the political persecution of an enemy. It is also referred to as the “politicization of justice system” or the “judicialization of politics”. The ultimate goal is the conquest of power by a coup d’etat or regime change, while destroying the democratic rule of law and imposing a neoliberal system which had been defeated in the electoral processes. The discourse behind lawfare is the fight against the supposed systemic corruption of progressive governments, while corruption is treated as a transnational crime. The side effect of the defeat of right-wing parties, the crisis of neo-liberalism and lawfare is the rise of neo-fascism and all its shadowy consequences, that result from agreements between the traditional elites and the extreme right.

How Chemistry is Taught in a Global World
as part of the 8th Annual International Conference on Chemistry
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Isai Urasa, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor of Chemistry & Director, Water Chemistry Research Laboratory, Hampton University, USA.

The chemistry community plays a crucial role in finding solutions for the mounting global challenges in climate change, water resources, environmental pollution, food supplies and food safety, and health. A good quality chemical education background is a critical starting point in the development of a workforce that is well suited for these challenges. It is essential that there is some consensus within the chemistry community as to what this should entail. This symposium will provide a forum for chemistry educators to undertake a comparative overview of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum models used in different countries and universities. The goal is to identify commonalities; suggest and/or share experiences or topics that should be reflected in a good quality chemical education program; and identify and suggest ways to overcome the challenges that undermine the implementation and promotion of good quality chemical education.

Global Data Management
as part of the
14th Annual International Conference on Global Studies
Academic Member Responsible: Dr. Timothy M. Young, Director, Center for Data Science (CDS) & Professor and Graduate Director, The University of Tennessee, USA.
As the global societies evolve in the 4th Industrial Revolution, ‘data science’ is emerging as an essential research discipline for academicians and practitioners that transcends the mathematical, statistical, and computational sciences. Data science incorporates the studies of artificial intelligence, big data, data mining, data fusion, data quality management, etc. (‘Industrie 4.0.’), and is a shared belief for success in our global societies, business, and institutional sectors. Many have cited that only 10% of data science research by academia is assimilated by the private and institutional sectors. The 1st inaugural conference on ‘Data Science’ attempts to reduce this gap by organizing networking opportunities for researchers and practitioners by being a global leader in developing conferences, education, publications, and research on contemporary topics essential in sustaining the global economy and the environment. Research papers and presentations are sought in: artificial intelligence, big data, data mining, data fusion, data quality management, and predictive analytics, as applied to all disciplines in the institutional, service, and business sectors.
