Human Labour and Sex Trafficking
as part of the 16th Annual International Conference on Sociology
Academic Responsible:
Dr. George S. Tsagaris
, Deputy Head, Sociology Unit, ATINER & Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Cleveland State University, USA.
The purpose of this stream is to bring together researchers who have conducted studies on human labour and sex trafficking. Human trafficking is a global issue involving many cultural, socio-political, socio-economic, and geographic regions worldwide. Human trafficking as a historical event has existed in ancient history and is viewed today as “a modern-day version of slavery.” The victims of human labour and sex trafficking include individuals of all ages – women, children, and men. This stream addresses the global sociological implications of human labour and sex trafficking from a global perspective, including the socio-economic, sociopolitical, and socio-economic implications. The primary invitees are researchers who have studied the cultural, socio-political, and socio-economic implications of human trafficking both historically and including ancient history and modern-day implications. This stream will also explore the multiple disciplines and topical areas that may include a global and historical perspective (past and present), business and economics, socio-political and cultural issues across geographic boundaries. There are well-known coalitions and initiatives also addressing this global issue.

Democracy
as part of the 16th Annual International Conference on Sociology

Academic Responsible:
Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos
, President, ATINER.
Democracy is applied everywhere; from a small village and tribe assembly, from a small city council, from a small city-state to megapolis, large nations and unions of them; from a small trade union to large federations of trade unions; from a small family business to large associations and conglomerates. Even anarchists assembly together and elect (?) their archons (spokespersons)! Millions of people are involved in seeking to represent specific groups of people and billions are involved in electing them.

Transhumanism
as part of the 5th Annual International Forum on Ethics
Academic Responsible
Mr. Marc Roux, Chair of the Association Française Transhumaniste – Technoprog & Affiliate Scholar, Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technologies, France

Transhumanism is a movement of thought, cultural and philosophical, which has been gradually irrigating the contemporary world for over forty years. It invites us to reconsider our conceptions of the human being, seeing it as an open project. We can see it at work behind the reflections of personalities from the economic world such as Lary Page, Elon Musk or Klaus Schwab. It is also already being taken into account by the military. It has given rise to a great deal of philosophical and sociological controversy and has been the subject of numerous books. But what about the citizen debate? The questions it raises – the relationship between humans and technology, the possibility of choosing our biological evolution, the interests and risks of living much longer in good health, etc. – are often difficult and very sensitive at the same time. They go to the very heart of our identity. How can the academic community work to make these questions both accessible and clear, and the public debate they imply take place in a serene manner?

The Transmission and Maintenance of Diaspora Identity Through time and Generation
as part of the 13th Annual International Conference on Visual and Performing Arts
Academic Responsible: Dr. Maria-Irini Avgoulas, Academic Member, ATINER & Cultural Counselling and Consultancy, Australia
Diaspora communities with their specific cultural identity are found throughout the world and exist on a continuum of redevelopment as they evolve. The experience of diaspora identity and the transmission of memory culture that supports identity maintenance may vary by generation, the original migrants and their descendants born in diaspora. Diaspora community members of all generations may maintain a sense of nostalgia but also negative emotions of not belonging to either their original homeland or the host community. This may be expressed as having two homelands and, in a sense, belonging to both. While potentially enriching, diaspora identity may in fact be more like belonging nowhere and being a stranger in both cultures. This may represent a negative emotion associated with the experience of migration and acculturation despite the generation of membership. This session will explore the transmission and maintenance of diaspora identity through time and generation and consider how associated psychosocial factors and the recreated social environment of the culture of origin may influence wellbeing and the experience of illness that are significant factors in overall health as well as the promotion of health and wellbeing in diaspora.

Young Art from the UAE
as part of the 13th Annual International Conference on Visual and Performing Arts
Stream Leader: Dr. Ioannis Papavasileiou, Assistant Professor, College of Arts and Creative Enterprises, Zayed University, UAE.
The status of the UAE as an international cultural center has been evolving rapidly. Saadiyat Cultural District, in Abu Dhabi, has become a cornerstone of the expanded art and culture scene, after the realization of the Sheikh Zayed National Museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. The Manarat Al Saadiyat and the UAE Pavilion currently showcase a wide-ranging series of exhibitions, special events, art fairs (such as the world-renowned Abu Dhabi Art Fair), public programs and educational initiatives. In Dubai, there are more than 90 local and international galleries. Dubai is home of Art Dubai; a leading inter­national art fair in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, and the host of the current WorldExpo. Sharjah hosts an art biennale and has a historical district with several museums and galleries. These facts make the UAE not just a booming, business-orientated place fueled by the growth of petrol and energy industries, but also a very attractive destination for the arts and for cultural education. There are several Art Colleges in the region and a growing demand across disciplines for graduates with an arts background, both practical and analytical.
The stream Young Art from the UAE seeks to explore what concept and contexts formations and practices young student artists in the Emirates use through artworks navigating themselves through tradition, globalization, and progress? What are their artistic drivers especially when the meaning of place and identity has shifted in our current times due to new remote technologies and most importantly due to the Covid -19 pandemic? How has student Art has evolved in the region and how has classroom experience coupled with cultures of the Arabian Gulf has expanded and shifted teaching methodologies?
The stream solicits artists and educators from the region to convey their ideas and experiences with young art from UAE through oral presentations and discussions with peers.

Economics of Art, Entertainment and Culture
as part of the 13th Annual International Conference on Visual and Performing Arts
Academic Responsible: Prof. Peter Baur, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, School of Economics, College of Business and Economics, Arts and Cultural Research Unit, University of Johannesburg, South Africa
From existing studies, it appears that the traditional cultural sectors contributed significantly to job creation, and especially apparent during the 2020 and 2021 COVID-19 crisis. There is a concern that the cultural sector, especially within the informal economy, is considerably under supported. As a significant job creator there is potential to provide support in the arts and cultural sector through skills development and capacity building programs with a focus on micro-business to mid-level organizations.

A range of skill development initiatives could be addressed. From an analysis of artists from within the informal sector, using a Latent Dirichlet Allocation Analysis, 6 topics from respondents working within the Arts and Cultural Sector (ACS) were identified:

The collective importance of arts and culture industry is unquestionable. This symposium explores the role of skills development in the arts and cultural sector. Underling themes could include: Ways of ensuring the survival of the arts and cultural sector, moving out of the informal sector and skills development initiatives to support the contribution of the arts and cultural sector within the global economy.

Hospitality Management Education
as part of the 18th Annual International Conference on Tourism
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Masooma Al-Balushi, Assistant Professor, Tourism Department, College of Arts and Social Sciences, Sultan Qaboos University, Oman

Hospitality education is a branch of the overall hospitality industry that is dedicated to providing the industry with well educated, adequately trained, and committed workforce. Universities missions are based on learning and exploration. Academics are involved in teaching, research, and service to the community. An academic department must operate within the university resources and within the global educational system, research, and economic environment. Tourism and hospitality related programs at universities face a dilemma, they must adhere to traditional academic competences to match other business-related bachelor degree programs while at the same time, must consider the industry needs as they prepare future employees and managers. To assure sustainability of hospitality management programs, several tactical and strategic decisions have been made. This symposium is an opportunity to share experiences, best practices, and discuss issues that face such academic programs, in an effort to benefit educators and administrators of hospitality management programs.

Latin America Democracy and Politics
as part of the 20th Annual International Conference on Politics & International Studies
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Raquel de Caria Patrício, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, University of Lisbon, Portugal.
Considering the transformations Latin American countries have been living since the beginning of the XXI century, according to which elections follows one to another as well as subversive processes, it is of extreme importance and relevance to reflect on the Latin American democratic and political processes throughout a symposium dedicated to the issue. Indeed, if in 2011 the left turn was in full swing, during 2010 and 2018 the number of democracies with left wing presidents could be counted in one hand. Moreover, from 2018/2019 onwards it has been witnessed to a different phenomenon in Latin America. The right-wing governments that appeared so powerful seem now to be giving their places to left-wing governments. Or, in other words, it seems that exists both right-wing and left-wing governments with a predominance of these last ones. This means that from 2018/2019 onwards there is a cohabitation in the region with right-wing and left-wing governments, with a possible new turn to the left. In this sense, another possibility is that the region is experiencing a less ideologically coherent anti-incumbent turn (Loxton, 2021, p. xi), whose one of the characteristics if the populism.

South European Politics and Primary Elections
as part of the 20th Annual International Conference on Politics & International Studies
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Constantin Colonescu, Academic Member, ATINER & Associate Professor, MacEwan University, Canada
While the theme of the symposium is open, we would be particularly interested in What is the power of the masses in electing their leaders, as opposed to being influenced by vested interests, propaganda, and misinformation? This question has been inspired by an ongoing discussion in social media about the incapacity of peoples to break a downward spiral of corruption and poor leadership. What could other countries learn from the relatively recent elections in Moldova and Bulgaria? It is often said that people do not vote because all candidates are corrupt or otherwise inadequate; that people do not vote because they are discouraged. What can be done to change this behavior? Why potentially good leaders do not run for elected positions? What could persuade them to do so? /em>

Russian Ethnology/Cultural Anthropology
as part of the 8th Annual International Conference on Anthropology
Academic Responsible
Dr. Viacheslav Rudnev, Researcher, Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Moscow, Russia.

This symposium will discuss modern ethnological/anthropological investigations in Russia. The ethnological/anthropological investigation of society life in cultural areas (Siberia, Volga area and so on) is actual for now. Modern ethnological/anthropological investigations are based on a complex approach and pay a special attention to interdisciplinary study. We will focus attention on topics reflecting the scientific interests of Russian ethnologists/anthropologists: inter-ethnic relationships, ethno-gender studies, specific of local folk life in a context of nature using, migration, specific of urban life and other topics. We will also look at the diverse folk experience in nature using in context of wild nature keeping and proper management in nature using. The topics included in this symposium intend to contribute much to the debate of the role of folk empirical observation in nature and society life for providing a life-support activity. The goal of the symposium is to focus attention on the anthropological perspective of these investigations to future collaboration in interdisciplinary research.

We aim to research the following questions (and others): What disciplines establish a relationship with architecture? How are these interrelationships established? What type of relationship governs their interaction? Is it based on language? Based on concepts? Who establishes such relationships? When do they take place? What is the specific context the individual author? Is there theoretical and continuous support or are these isolated experiences? What ideas are at stake? Why? What periods are most paradigmatic for each type of relationship? In what conceptual contexts? Which authors have put these relationships into practice, and which have theorized about them? What are the results of these inter and/or transdisciplinary relationships? How can one use these experiences as a creative resource? It is our belief that finding the answers to these questions will contribute to a new look at architectural culture.

Architecture and Religion
as part of the 12th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University and Associate Professor, ISMAT (Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes), Portugal.
Religion is one element which, since the birth of mankind, has contributed significantly to doing and thinking architecture. It is one of the factors not external to man that have most influenced the image and purpose of architecture. Religion has manifested itself in architecture through its various forms – be they spatial, typological, construction-related, symbolic, functional, etc. And whilst this manifestation has made itself felt most directly in sacred architecture, secular architecture also shows signs of that influence. This Call for Papers sets out to present and discuss the various relationships that have established themselves between architecture and religion. Authors are invited to submit papers that reflect on how specific aspects of the various religions are revealed in architecture and/or to present and discuss a comparative study of these aspects for the different religions. Subject matters such as: the permanence of forms over time that have to do with religion; typologies and rituals; the influence of architecture on religious practices; the influence of exterior religions on architecture; the influence of religion on secular architecture; the influence of religion on decoration, etc., are welcome. The submitted papers will be considered for a special issue on Religion and Architecture of the Athens Journal of Architecture.

Architecture as a Place of Encounter of Traditions
as part of the 12th Annual International Conference on Architecture
Academic Responsible:
Dr. Clara Germana Gonçalves, Head, Architecture Unit, ATINER & Researcher, CITAD (Centro de Investigação em Território, Arquitectura e Design), Lusíada University and Associate Professor, ISMAT (Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes), Portugal.
Since time immemorial, architecture has given rise to diverse traditions and consolidated itself through them. One can indeed speak of traditions that correspond to different ways of thinking and constructing architectures that vary in accordance with the period in time, geography, culture, etc. One can generically refer to them as vernacular, popular, erudite, domestic, foreign, local, international, classical, modern, etc. Oftentimes these traditions take the form of dialogue, reciprocal assimilation or contrast, for example in the pairings vernacular/erudite, popular/erudite, domestic/foreign, local/international, classical/modern. The encounter of differing traditions manifests itself recognisably in the thought and/or work of various architects. In that encounter lies a large part of the interest in said though and/or work. That encounter is also frequently an instrument for experimentation with and evolution of architecture. Here one can cite as examples Hermann Muthesius and his interest in English residential design, Frank Lloyd Wright and his interest in the vernacular architecture of distant Japan, Alvar Aalto and the influence of the Finnish vernacular, Hassan Fathy and the confrontation between the International Style and Egyptian vernacular, etc. This symposium sets out to present and discuss why and how different architects thought and built architecture as a place of encounter for various traditions and how that encounter gave rise to rich and enriching work, both for the architecture of the day and of the future.

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.
