About the conference
VIII International Scientific Conference “Space, Society, Politics” is dedicated to 15 years anniversary of Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University.
Considering the global pandemic situation, the organizing committee of the 8th International Scientific Conference – “Space, Society, Politics” has decided to conduct the conference in a non-attending format. We are facilitating our participants with the virtual presentation.
The virtual presentations will be either prepared by the participants beforehand (15 minutes video records in mp4 format and presented during the conference by the organizing committee in an asynchronous format) or presented via zoom meeting synchronously. The online discussion sessions will be arranged during the conference 25-26 of June among the participants. Our technical team will assist participants in case of technical obstacles with the virtual presentations.
We welcome your participation!
