About IConEGS 2020

2020 International Conference on Education and Global Studies (IConEGS 2020) will be held at International House, Osaka, Japan during January 15-17, 2020. The main objective of IConEGS is to provide a platform for researchers, academicians, practitioners, as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in the fields of Education and Global Studies. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts or full papers online. All submissions to the IConEGS will be reviewed by two peers for technical merit and content. It is anticipated that a broad range of research and applied topics will be covered during the conference.

Osaka is famous for the host city of G20 Summit. Osaka with a population of about 2.6 million is the third-most populated city in Japan (after Tokyo and Yokohama). Osakans are usually characterized as being outgoing and clever at money affairs. Itā€™s also known for its food, castle, port, underground shopping arcades, and bunraku puppet theater, and boasts the oldest state temple in Japan, one of the nationā€™s best aquariums, and the only Universal Studios outside the United States. Because of its international airport, it also serves as a major gateway to the rest of Japan. Indeed, some travelers base themselves in Osaka, taking day trips to Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. All participants not only will have a fruitful stay at the conference, but also an enjoyable trip in the city of Osaka.

Fighting disinformation and fake news: The role of the library and beyond

In the last few years, we have heard the terms fake news, disinformation, misinformation, etc. repeatedly. Yet, we do not clearly know how to be better informed, fight this phenomenon, or to train people in combating it. With a vast majority of population relatively new to technology, and not trained in any formal way to decipher the real from unreal, truth from half-truths and lies, people actually end up believing disinformation as truth, especially when there is enough repetition. In this talk, I will describe the phenomenon and its implications, the current efforts and their degree of success, and provide directions for information professionals to fight disinformation and fake news.
