ICSD 2017 Conference, Rome, Italy

mercredi, 30 novembre 2016 10:56 Written by

The International Conference on Sustainable Development is inspired from the critical challenge of human, environmental, and economic sustainability concerning the present and future generations in a global-scale context.

The 5th ICSD 2017 will be held at the Roma Eventi, Piazza della Pilotta, 4, Rome, Italy
Wednesday 6 to Thursday 7 September, 2017.

The Conference theme is:

"Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education".

This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and analytical approaches.

The 2017 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science.

This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.

We invite you to submit an abstract in the range of the
following streams within the ICSD2017 program:

1. Economic Sustainability:
    Financial Sustainability, SME, MicroFinance,
    Emerging Countries, International Trade,
2. Environmental Sustainability:
    Water and Soil conservation, Healthcare,
    Renewable Energies, Food and Enviromental Legislation
3. Socio-Cultural Sustainability:
    Sustainable Urbanism, Education, Human
    Development, Psychology, Sociology

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, posters/exhibits, or virtual presentation. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.  For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community send an e-mail at:  Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.

15e Congrès de l’Encéphale

lundi, 21 novembre 2016 21:26 Written by

Dans cette édition 2017, un programme extrêmement diversifié et novateur, grâce aux très nombreuses propositions faites au Comité Scientifique par la communauté psychiatrique, nous permettra de cheminer au travers des multiples facettes de la psychiatrie. Citons tout particulièrement les sessions sur la psychopharmacologie du 3e millénaire et le staging dans la schizophrénie, les connaissances approfondies sur l’état de stress post-traumatique ou encore la dysrégulation émotionnelle chez le bipolaire euthymique.

Notre ambition est d’assurer une mission de formation continue en psychiatrie pour que chaque participant ressorte du congrès en ayant mis en perspective ses connaissances et sa pratique, au gré des évolutions de notre métier. C’est pourquoi les sessions Connaissances approfondies, qui permettent en 2 heures de faire un point sur une pathologie et/ou une stratégie thérapeutique et sont chaque année plébiscitées, auront lieu dans les plus grandes salles du Palais de Congrès. Parallèlement, de nombreuses sessions permettront de rendre compte aussi bien des avancées scientifiques en psychiatrie et des nouvelles pistes thérapeutiques que des grandes questions sociétales et culturelles qui animent ou interpellent notre pratique et sont au cœur de la philosophie de l’Encéphale.

Retrouvons-nous à Paris les 18, 19 et 20 janvier 2017 avec nos partenaires (associations et sociétés savantes) pour partager notre passion pour la clinique psychiatrique !

Congrès de l’Encéphale


the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of over 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella. Now in its 86th year, this flagship event is much more than Canada’s largest gathering of scholars. Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.

Typically spanning seven days in late May and early June, and attracting over 8,000 attendees, Congress is organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and hosted by a different Canadian university each year. The Federation, host university, scholarly associations and partners develop a full week of presentations, workshops, panels, public lectures, cultural events and receptions. It also features Canada’s largest academic trade show. The result? Luminaries, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and students from across Canada and abroad meet, share ideas and engage in discussions that have direct importance for Canada and the lives of Canadians.

Congress programming is open to attendees, academics and non-academic audiences. From theatre research, literature studies and history to education, sociology and communications, Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity, and leadership.

Congress 2017 is being hosted by Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. The theme for this year’s Congress is “From Far and Wide: The Next 150.”
