    Call for Papers – 9th International Conference on Arts and Humanities (ICOAH) 2022

    The International Institute of Knowledge Management (TIIKM) in collaboration with Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) is pleased to invite abstracts for its 9th International Conference on Arts and Humanities (ICOAH) 2022, which will be held remotely on 15-16 September 2022 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The theme of the conference is “technological transformations”.

    Our time is marked by an exponential technological growth that transforms the nature of every aspect of our lives: our relationships with other people, our jobs, our engagement with money, the ways in which me make and share works of art, our familial realities, our safety on- and off-line, our physical and mental health, our privacy and freedoms, the nature of our politics, the wars we fight, and indeed the ways we perceive reality itself. As author Azeem Azhar writes in his book Exponential (2021), “A new technology might at first cause a small social change – but one that eventually spirals into major repercussions for the whole of society…a phase transition has been reached, and we are witnessing our systems transforming before our very eyes. Water is becoming steam.”

    ICOAH 2022 will be a global platform for artists, researchers, academics, educators, technologists, art administrators, policymakers, advocates, media specialists, cultural community activists, and social scientists to collaborate in exploring the many promises and dangers of technological growth; and the roles of the arts and humanities in technological innovation, in investigating its ethics, and its effects on society and individuals. We will consider questions about our technological futures: What usefulness will humans have to AI beings when AI surpasses human intelligence and most labour is replaced by machines? What will be the nature of human life in a virtual-panopticon world, in which our actions, feelings, and thoughts are constantly monitored and recorded? Will humanity become more responsible or enslaved? (Bauman & Lyon, 2013). How can humanity prevent an economic / political / human-rights-oriented collapse resulting from irresponsible and unethical technological developments—particularly in artificial intelligence and autonomous systems (Pereira & Saptawijaya, 2016; Bringsjord & Govindarajulu, 2018)?

    Join us and share your ongoing projects, creations, research, knowledge, questions, and experiences. We welcome abstracts of 150 to 200 words. Proposals may include papers, technological demonstrations, workshops, panels, and art presentations that are relevant (but not limited) to:
