The 6th International Conference on Education & Social Sciences

ICESS 2021

The development of digital technology has brought big changes in the order of life and even gave birth to a new world civilization for mankind. Digital technology has been integrated into everyday social life. Now, the role of digital technology is increasingly dominant when the world faces the spread of the Covid-19 virus. A pandemic situation forces humans to limit the occurrence of direct social relationships and divert them into virtually mediated relationships through digital technology. This new world needs to be addressed scientifically, especially from the perspective of social sciences, humanities, and education to evaluate and develop science from the aspects of methods, studies, scientific theoretical substance, and good practice in order to find appropriate academic reasoning in facing ongoing changes. ICESS 2021 aims to bring together researchers, teachers, scientists, and scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of social science, humanity, and education. The conference is expected to bring about strategy, best practices, and solutions contributing to the efforts to beat the covid-19 pandemic.
