Call for proposal – AIS 2019

From 24-26 October 2019, the annual AIS conference will be hosted for the first time in Europe, by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), The Netherlands. The theme of the conference will be ‘Interdisciplinarity in Global Contexts’. Since a defining feature of interdisciplinarity is not to abstract or isolate problems but rather to approach them in their real-world contexts, this conference theme asks participants to consider the global and local contexts of interdisciplinary education and research. The program committee is looking for proposals that can start a debate, encourage audience involvement and a lively dialogue with all participants. Deadline for application: 1 April 2019
