The organizers of Acadafest! – Orlando International Multidisciplinary Conference – are now considering abstracts for its first academic festival of ideas. The aim of this intellectual fiesta is to bring together, under one roof, scholars from every academic discipline, captains of industry and government officials in an effort to engender cross disciplinary conversations on issues vital towards the growth and advancement of humanity in the face of the many challenges of the 21st century.

To this end, the theme of Acadafest 2019! is “Sustainable Development of our Communities: The Nexus between Scholarship, Industry and Government”.

This theme is informed by the principles at the core of the United Nations’ Resolution A/RES/66/288, titled “The Future We Want”, known collectively as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a collection of 17 global goals:

  • Goal 13: Climate Change
  • Goal 14: Life Below Water
  • Goal 15: Life on Land
  • Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  • Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals

The focus of abstracts for this academic fiesta, while informed by the goals itemized above, should be aligned with the following sub-themes:
