Proceedings of the 2016 2nd International Conference on Social Science and Technology Education (ICSSTE 2016)

The 2016 2nd International Conference on Social Science and Technology Education (ICSSTE2016) will be held in Guangzhou, China on May 14-15, 2016. ICSSTE 2016 is organized by the International Association for Cyber Science and Engineering. The main objective of ICSSTE 2016 is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in Social Science and Technology Education. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.

The Conference hopes to establish a network of like-minded scholars, researchers and practitioners to communicate and collaborate in advancing their chosen fields of interest. We invite original papers describing an idea or concept, addressing issues and problems, or focusing empirically on potential or realistic areas.

ICSSTE 2016 has received 612 submissions which come from both academia and industry reflecting the international flavor of this event in the topics of Social Science and Technology Education. All papers had been reviewed by at least two reviewers, and based on the review reports, 198 papers were accepted to be presented in ICSSTE 2016 by the chairs. All the accepted papers have been presented on the conference, mainly by oral presentations in 6 sessions viz., Society and Social Sciences, Language and Communication, Business and Management, Pedagogy and Learning, Art & Sport, and Technology and Technology Education.

All the presented papers will be published by Atlantis Press, and submitted for indexing to Thomson ISI (ISSHP, CPCI, Web of Science).

We express our thanks to all the members of the General Committee Chair, Program Committee Chairs, Technical Program Committee and Volunteers who worked so hard to prepare the conference and chair the 6 sessions of ICSSTE 2016.

We hope that ICSSTE 2016 will be successful and enjoyable to all participants. We look forward to seeing all of you next year at the ICSSTE 2017.
