International Conference on ICT enhanced Social Sciences and Humanities 2020 Moves Online
The organizers of ICTeSSH 2020 have no choice but to hold the conference as a virtual meeting due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and decision of the Dutch Government to ban organization of large events until September 2020. Anyway, we are looking forward to host up to 500 attendees and more than 25 speakers in a virtual environment. The participation in the conference will be free of charge thanks to our sponsors.
Participants who already paid registration fee for participation in initially planed physical meeting will be contacted by Science 2.0 Alliance officers to arrange full refunding of paid fees.
SSH researchers should be awakened to the huge possibilities and avenues for research based on ICT. The future of science is about multidisciplinary collaboration and applying new technologies. ICT tools for SSH researchers already exist, such as research-oriented social networking sites and tools to support scientific research, to manage labs and data, and to enable better communication. These tools could change the way SSH researchers carry out research, collaborate, disseminate and evaluate research outputs. The International Conference on Information-communication technologies enhanced Social Sciences and Humanities (ICTeSSH) is a three day annual conference where stakeholders come together for an open discussion to talk about the changing research ecosystem in SSH fields in the digital age due to the extremely fast development of ICT.
The ICTeSSH 2020 conference aims to bring together leading SSH researchers, computer scientists, informaticians, publishers, librarians, vendors of research ICT tools, SSH decision makers and others, to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of ICT enhanced Social Sciences and Humanities. In addition, the conference aims to discuss promising new ideas and identify new potential collaborators. The ICTeSSH 2020 conference will be held in Amsterdam in the last week of June. Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, and is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades.
