Additional Information

In cooperation with the German town of Gottenheim and its Mayor, the Honorable Volker Kieber, IJAS invites faculty to attend this unique four-day refereed conference in an extended geographical area that inspired several settings for Disneyland and its fairytale movies. The area spans over three adjoining countries. While the conference presentations are being held in Gottenheim, just outside Freiburg, in the Southwest corner of Germany, faculty will have the option to participate free-of-charge in (i) a one-day program in France's Alsace region, and (ii) a one-day program in Basel, Switzerland. Private coaches will be available to bus the attendees to the two programs. Both programs are highly informative and will introduce the faculty to facets of European life that until recently were compartimentalized away from each other through political barriers. Faculty who opt for any or both of these day programs will be assigned a presentation slot on a different day to assure no conflict of schedule. We invite abstracts, papers, and proposals in any of the following tracks: Social Sciences and Humanities, Business and Economics, Teaching and Education, Engineering and Technology, Physical and Life Sciences, and Interdisciplinary Studies. The best paper in each of these six tracks will be recognized through an engraved plaque. The track chairs will select the winning papers. It is up to each author how much to publish in the conference proceedings. Some authors may publish only an abstract. Others may prefer to publish a longer format such as a full paper. IJAS does not ask for the authors' copyrights; authors are free to take their presentation work elsewhere and publish it in a journal. Authors may deliver their work during the conference either as (i) a regular presentation, (ii) a poster session, (iii) a panel, or (iv) a workshop.
