Proceedings of the 2013 International Academic Workshop on Social Science

It is my honor to welcome all of you to Changsha, China to participate in the 2013 International Academic Workshop on Social Science (IAW-SC 2013). IAW-SC 2013 is to offer scholars, professionals, academics and graduate students the possibility to present, share, and discuss their studies from various perspectives in the aspects of social science.

The IAW-SC 2013 is hosted by the Advance Information Science Research Center and is sponsored by Atlantis Press, Qingdao University, Liaocheng University, Fuzhou University and Hunan University.

These proceedings collect the up-to-date, comprehensive and worldwide state-of-art knowledge on social science. All accepted papers were subjected to strict peer-reviewing by 2-4 expert referees. The papers have been selected for these proceedings based on originality, significance, and clarity for the purpose of the conference. The selected papers and additional late-breaking contributions to be presented will make for an exciting technical program on the conference. The conference program is extremely rich, featuring high-impact presentations. We hope this conference will not only provide the participants a broad overview of the latest research results on social science, but also provide the participants a significant platform to build academic connections.

IAW-SC 2013 would like to express our sincere appreciations to all authors for their contributions to this conference. We would like to extend our thanks to all the reviewers for their constructive comments on all papers (please click here to see the list of reviewers). Especially, we would like to thank to organizing committee for their hard work.

Finally, we wish all the authors and attendees of IAW-SC 2013 a unique, rewarding and enjoyable memory at IAW-SC 2013 in Changsha. We look forward to your contribution in the second IAW-SC 2014.
