Call for Papers and Participation

The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) will hold its 12th Annual International Conference on Global Studies: Business, Economic, Political, Social and Cultural Aspects, 20-23 December 2018, Athens, Greece.

The aim of the conference is to give an opportunity to participants to present their work to academics and researchers from different disciplines. Papers are considered from all areas of Business, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities. There are no specific themes. You may participate as a stream leader, a presenter of a paper, chairperson of a session or as an observer.

All papers are peer reviewed and published by ATINER in its specialized volumes of books (https://www.atiner.gr/publications). Also, the abstracts and the submitted papers are published after the conference in ATINER’s series of abstract books and conference papers

Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, an Athens educational walking tour and one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

If you think that you can contribute, please submit an abstract (email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form by the 5 November 2018 to: Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor of Economics, University of Stirling, UK. Abstracts should include: Title of Paper, Family Name(s), First Name(s), Institutional Affiliation, Current Position, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of the submission. Announcement of the decision is made within 4 weeks after submission, which includes information on registration deadlines and paper submission requirements.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor, University of Stirling, UK (gregory.papanikos@stir.ac.uk).

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into 7 Divisions and 37 Units and 5 Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
