International Conference on Social Sciences and Humanities (ICOSH 2009)


The social sciences and humanities share a common object of study: human beings and their world. Using methods of empirical data collection and scientific analysis, the social sciences study human behaviour and society. The humanities explore the basic nature and purpose of human existence. Together, there is a constant evolution of approaches and adaptations to global transformations that affect all the disciplines within the social sciences and humanities. The purpose of this conference is to critically examine the relevance of existing approaches, and to explore innovative ideas and theories that could and should adapt to the on-going changes that affect human existence. In the new millennium, most aspects of human existence, such as quality of life, security, employment, and psychological well-being, depend heavily on relevant knowledge and derive from on-going scientific research. Consequently, research and development has become one of the major forces of progress in the humanities. It is crucial to look into the impacts of research in the areas of the social sciences and humanities in order to sustain as well as improve the various facets of human existence.


To appraise the role, contribution and significance of the social sciences and humanities in the regeneration of knowledge
To provide an intellectual forum for scholars and researchers on the changing geopolitical scenario, and its impact on existing theories in the social sciences and humanities

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
