The organizing committee is pleased
to announce for this open session, which is jointly organized with the
Foundation for Science, Technology & Civilization (FSTC). This selected
topic is becoming increasingly important in view of the global public demand to
know more about the role of previous cultures in building the present modern
civilization. Although this is hugely important to the noble aims (of using the
past to build a better future, enhance social cohesion and inter-cultural
dialogue), it can be hampered by the manner in which such history is presented
to the public and in particular the young generation. Recent experience shows
that for these noble aims to be achieved there are essential requirements. These
- Accuracy of historical findings
through high quality unbiased scholarship that is aware of modern attitudes to
historical events, their interpretation and connectivity.
- Involvement of public engagement
communities such as:
- Educationalists experienced in
modern methods and techniques, and communication
- Museum curators who are experienced
in communicating historical events and artifacts through modern
- Science public explainers and TV
- Film and media producers
- Sociologists and inter- cultural
The special session provides an
opportunity to all concerned scientists in the field to discuss these issues
within a professional academic atmosphere.
Due to the short notice, this
session will not require full papers for submission. An abstract will suffice to
allow inclusion of presentations for discussion.
Please arrange to send your
abstract to the session leader Dr. Hussein M Elmehdi, with the session code
SS3, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
. The deadline for receiving
abstracts is Nov. 15, 2014. An acceptance notification will be sent no later
than Nov. 20, 2014.
