Call for Papers, Nairobi, Kenya 2013

1st Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies Campus

CONFERENCE THEME: "Entrepreneurship and Sustainability: From Lifestyles to Innovative Enterprises in Creative and Sustainable Economies"
DATE: 2nd - 4th April, 2014
IJSSE would like to welcome everyone to the prestigious 1st  conference on the theme “ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND  SUSTAINABILITY: FROM LIFE STYLES TO INNOVATIVE ENTERPRISES IN CREATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIES”  which will be held at Kenya School of monetary studies  from 2 to 4 April  2014.
IJSSE will be hosting an innovational research conference. This conference will aid scholarly publication across continents and academic communities. IJSSE would like to take this opportunity to invite scholars, researchers, academics and students in Africa and elsewhere to submit abstract or proposals on their research disciplines.
Organized and hosted by International Journal of Social Sciences and Entrepreneurship. This conference will be held between 2st and 4th of April 2014.

The  conference  theme  covers  a  range  of  highly  topical  issues  that  relates  to  the  creative  aspects  of  new opportunity recognition and sustainable growth for enterprises, the economy and society through innovation, technology, collaborative business models, networks and organizational change which issues that are preoccupying the minds of  the entrepreneurs, policy makers, and researchers as attempts are being made to find new directions in the way we  create value driven and entrepreneurial firms and societies. In attempting to answer some of the questions above our objective is to provide a platform for researchers, policy  makers and practitioners to both showcase and grapple with the increasing flow of ideas, resources and knowledge  between businesses, institutions and policy makers. The particular role of entrepreneurship in transforming society through greater and meaningful economic opportunity is to be found in these flows and in the mix of these assets. IJSSE conferences are different from many. The sessions are organized to enable such discourse and debate. The conference will address interdisciplinary practices across the social sciences, and between the social sciences and the natural sciences, applied sciences and the professions. It will work in a multidisciplinary way, across diverse fields and taking varied perspectives in order to address the fundamentals of the social sciences. As well as impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the conference will include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call-for-papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication, as well as access to the Journal.
