The Worldwide Forum on Education and Culture welcomes presentations in all disciplines and on every level of education and business.  The deadline for abstracts is June 6, 2016.  Proposals may be considered after this date if all sessions are not full.  Scholarships are available for beginning professors, graduate students and those who demonstrate a financial need.

The congress will focus on living and learning in the years ahead.  For example, where will we find ourselves in 10 or 20 years? How do we get ready for a world we cannot see or even imagine? How can we work together toward a common purpose and still retain our individuality?

In addition, what are the practical ways we can prepare students and people for tomorrow? What do we teach them today and what will they need to know to face the years ahead? Most of all, what can we do collectively to improve the quality of life, living and learning throughout the world?

We invite proposals in all fields and disciplines, especially the following:

• Humanities

• Communication Arts

• Social Media

• Intensive English and ESL

• Film and Cinema

• Education and Teaching

• Agriculture and Biodiversity

• Cultural Heritage

• Multiculturalism and Diversity

• Business and Management

• Engineering

• Math and Computer Science

• Social Sciences

• Physical and Life Sciences

• Fine and Applied Arts

• Health Professions

Please note that this year's Worldwide Forum will be limited to no more than 36 presentations.
