Global Data Management
as part of the 16th 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.

Human Resource Accounting
as part of the 16th Annual International Conference on Global Studies
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Joseph VanVo, Adjunct Professor, College of Business Administration, California State University, Sacramento, USA

Human Resource Accounting (HRA) is a proposed cost accounting system which quantifies the worth and expense of human resources in terms of employees’ overall soft skills namely knowledge, experience, expertise, motivation, creativity, followership, leadership, etc. along with organizational recruitment, training, development, promotion, transfer, relocation, termination, etc. It is therefore the value and cost of human resource characteristics and activities within an organization. HRA had been initiated in the 1960’s and became somewhat vibrantly worldwide through the 1970’s, 1980’s…up to 1990’s…then has since been in impasse. In its place is the Workforce Analytics (Valamis, 2021) which is the process of using data-based intelligence to improve and enhance human resource decision making, like managing and hiring top talent, aligning compensation with performance etc. It leverages “big data” to make informed workplace decisions and predictions. Perhaps, nowadays, HRA can be realized through Workforce Analytics? At least that is the thought of two well-known authors of the HRA models – Dr. Flamholtz (UCLA) and Dr. Ogan (U of Florida) – whom I had the honor of meeting virtually and f2f during the Summer 2018 and Fall 2019, respectively.
