CALL FOR PAPER:
Societies living in underserved areas face multifactorial problems — energy, water, climate, food, health, education, transportation, social development, economic growth, etc. — that are not amenable to separate single-discipline investigation but require collaboration between many types of expertise. Today, there is a consensus that the solutions of the problems facing people in underserved areas lie at the intersections of traditional disciplines. This is the essence behind Interdisciplinary Solutions (InterSol); an international conference dedicated to the advancement of interdisciplinary researches that address people’s needs in underserved areas. It is intended (1) to encourage innovative interdisciplinary research, development and education that focus on solving problems in underserved areas, and (2) to create an international research and development community around “interdisciplinary solutions”.
The third edition of the conference (InterSol2019) will be held on February 14-15, 2019 in Cairo, Egypt. This year’s main topics include (but not limited): Gender and Socio-Economic Development; Urban Development and Smart Cities for Africa; Agriculture, Water Resources, Food Security and Climate Change; and ICT as enabler. A detailed list of the covered themes is available below. We invite unpublished contributions and innovations that address these issues via an interdisciplinary approach.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by an international team of experts and accepted papers will be invited to be discussed during the third annual meeting in February 14-15, 2019. Finally, all accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
