The Asian Conference on Society, Education & Technology 2016 will be held alongside The Asian Conference on Education 2016, The Asian Undergraduate Research Symposium 2016 and The Asian Conference on Library, Archive & Information Management 2016 as part of the same event. Registration for any one of these conferences permits attendance in all four within the event.
These international and interdisciplinary conferences will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in the society, education and technology. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACSET2016 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
Conference Theme: “Education and Social Justice: Educating for Equality Within and Across Borders”
IAFOR promotes and facilitates new multifaceted approaches to one of the core issues of our time, namely globalisation and its many forms of growth and expansion, and its subsequent impact on societies, institutions and individuals.
The Asian Conference on Society, Education & Technology 2016 invites educators and policy makers from around the world to look at the latest trends and issues in technology policy and practice and its role in the private and public sphere. ACSET is a conference about change and transformation, and the conference theme of “Education and Social Justice: Educating for Equality within and across Borders” looks at how technology can transform and change systems and whole societies, whilst it is itself in a state of continuous transformation and change. Harnessed in the right way, it can empower individuals to achieve great things, and make the world a better place, but also raises many worrying ethical questions, including those concerning privacy and surveillance.
Submissions are organised into the following thematic streams:
- Technology and Society: The Social and Societal Impact and Implications of Technology
- Technology and Society: Technologies, Societies and Communities
- Education and Technology: Teaching, Learning, Technology & Education Support
- Education, Technology and Society: Technologies, Knowledge Creation and Access
- Technology and Society: Computers, Technology & Society: IT Delivery
- Technology and Society: ICT & Security: Questions of Privacy, Governance & Trust
- Technology and Society: Green Computing: ICT, Sustainability, Energy and the Environment
We expect the 2016 conference theme to inspire a number of research avenues, and look forward to discussing your ideas, findings and synergies.
We hope to see you at ACSET2016.
