We are pleased to invite you to participate in the World LUMEN Congress 2021. Logos Universality Mentality Education Novelty. 20th LUMEN Anniversary Edition! 26-30 May 2021, Iasi, Romania
This new edition of the World LUMEN Congress WLC2021 continues to focus on the interferences between the new theoretical approaches and the social and educational practice, taking into account the need for an ethical resizing of the social action.
For the moment, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic that the entire world faces, the congress will take place in online format only.
There are expected papers in the social sciences and humanities fields, without being set a precise disciplinary border. We encourage the transdisciplinary approaches that overcome the existing cleavage between theory and practice. See the topics here.
This edition of World LUMEN Congress 2021 gives the opportunity of many types of presentations: plenary, oral & poster presentations, but also encourages the proposal of associated events such as lectures, workshops,round-tables, book releases, conferences.
Go to the Registration page of the Congress and follow the registration steps. In the Comments section of Lumen Submission Platform, please specify the manner of presentation: plenary, oral, poster, workshop etc.!
The online platform we will use for virtual presentations is ZOOM. In order to be able to organize the presentations efficiently, the authors registered with virtual presentations are kindly asked to send a supplementary video recording of their presentation in advance at least 20 days before the conference. Sending the recorded video presentation does not replace the online ZOOM presentation during the Conference.
