12th Annual Conference of Europe’s Sciences and Arts Leaders and Scholars

It’s About People: In Service of Sustainability and Dignity

8-13 March 2024, Online

with an on-site plenary in Maribor, Slovenia

Alma Mater Europaea and the European Academy of Sciences and Arts invite academics, researchers, thought leaders, practitioners, and postgraduate students, to submit original research, case studies, work, and other insights for presentation at the 2024 12th annual conference It’s About People. Both full panels and individual presentation proposals are welcome.

Main Theme and Objectives
In selecting the theme ‘In Service of Sustainability and Dignity’, this significant scholarly event seeks to explore the potential of academic findings, including the recent qualitative leaps in technological development, to serve the needs of present and future generations and to foster and promote the inherent worth of each human being. The particular value of humanity and its existence and development without the degradation of natural resources are two sides of the same coin. In understanding sustainable development and promoting human dignity, we need to consider intergenerational and intragenerational equity, sustainable use, and developmental needs. The 12th It’s About People conference will bring together leading European scholars and thought leaders from diverse disciplines who will share broad perspectives, knowledge, skills, and communication in an educational setting. We envision discussions that will include opinions from around the globe.

Panels’ and Papers’ Disciplines
Panels are not restricted to the Main Theme. Panels on any scholarly discipline are welcome. Scholars and policy and higher education leaders from fields including, but not limited to social and natural sciences, humanities, health, medicine, artificial intelligence, sustainable development, social gerontology, social work, law, education, philosophy, psychology, management, project management, communication, informatics, and archival studies are invited to apply, and present their research and views.
