2013 Conference Theme: "Connectedness & Alienation: The 21st Century Enigma"

Being connected has become much easier in the 21st century. The digital revolution, the internet, social network sites, skype, and the ubiquity of mobile phones have helped us to reconnect with long-lost family and friends, to make new relationships even with people we haven not met in person, and to stay connected despite geographical separation. However, this revolution in convenience and communication has not necessarily helped us to be more truly connected. Social connectedness refers to the quality and quantity of relationships with others including family, friends, colleagues, and the wider community, through various modes of contact, and the resulting benefits. Being truly socially connected involves not only the number of connections with important people in our lives, but also factors such as trust, disclosure, loneliness and isolation. Other aspects of connectedness are also equally as important as the social: psychological connectedness with our multiple, changing selves gives us our sense of identity over space and time; connectedness with our environment, be it the natural environment or our social ones, such as school, work, or community provides us with a sense of belonging; spiritual connectedness in the transcendental sense provides meaning in our lives; and moral connectedness, being true to our values helps us to maintain our integrity in our complex lives.

We hope and expect that the conference theme, as well as the sub-themes below will excite interesting new interpretations and explorations:

Connectedness: Self, social, spiritual, natural and moral Personal and Social Connectedness: Trusting self and others Connectedness: Personal, inter-personal, local and global

We hope you can join us in Osaka in 2013!
