About IConEGS 2024
The 2024 International Conference on Education and Global Studies (IConEGS 2024) is scheduled to take place from January 23rd to 25th at the International House in Osaka, Japan. IConEGS’s primary aim is to create an environment where researchers, academics, practitioners, and industry professionals worldwide can share their research findings and developmental initiatives in Education and Global Studies. The conference aims to stimulate new thoughts, facilitate face-to-face application experiences, foster research collaborations, and assist in finding international partners for future ventures. We invite potential authors to submit either abstracts or full papers online. All IConEGS submissions will undergo a double peer review for technical merit and content. A wide array of both research and applied topics are expected to be discussed during the conference.
Set to host World Expo 2025, Osaka, Japan’s third largest city, is renowned for its dynamic cultural blend and economic prowess. Known for their outgoing nature, Osakans take pride in their diverse food scene, historic castle, underground shopping arcades, and unique bunraku puppet theater. Home to Japan’s oldest temple, a top-rated aquarium, and the only Universal Studios outside the US, Osaka offers conference attendees a chance to immerse themselves in both a stimulating event and a vibrant city, easily accessible to the rest of Japan and beyond.

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.
