Call for Papers and Participation

The Arts & Culture Unit of ATINER is organizing the 4th Annual International Symposium on Culture and Civilization, 10-13 June 2019, Athens, Greece.

This year the symposium will be centered around the themes of History, Conservation, Economics and Tourism. Those four terms, tough they exist in their own right, they are nevertheless inextricably connected by the word culture.

Thus, the primary aim of this conference highlights this particular aspect, as it provides a platform for academics, experts, educators and interested public who wish to present their innovative ideas relating to the core theme of culture, but at the same time encompass the most wide-ranging disciplines in the academic world. They include history, cultural heritage, humanities, philosophy, economics, law, sociology, chemistry, biology, architecture, engineering, education, information technology, and the various streams of the performing arts: music, cinema, theatre, books, archives and others connected to the topics in the Symposium title. The Symposium is therefore an interdisciplinary opportunity for everyone to scientifically share and exchange, and consider and compare, their ideas.

You may participate as a stream leader, presenter of one paper, chair of a session or observer.

Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/2019fees.

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, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Myceanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form by the 11 February 2019 to: Dr. Salvatore Lorusso, Former Full Professor in Chemistry of the Environment and Cultural Heritage, University of Bologna, Italy. Abstracts should include the following: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission.

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 seven Divisions, 37 Units and five Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
