Dear colleagues

VI. The International Rating Academy Congress (IRAC VI) themed SOCIETY 5.0 will be held on 6-8 May 2021. The theme of the conference this year is Society 5.0. The concept of Society 5.0, which is also expressed as a "human-oriented super-smart society", expresses the society of the future. The opportunities offered by digital transformation and the conditions created by globalization and pandemic make the concept of Society 5.0 meaningful. The Congress will provide an environment to evaluate the society of the future in today's conditions.

Kongremiz Toros Üniversitesi ev sahipliğinde gerçekleştirilecektir. Pandemi koşulları nedeniyle, kongremiz hibrid kongre olarak tasarlanmıştır. Pandemi koşulları elverdiği taktirde sunumlar Toros Üniversitesi tesislerinde yüzyüze yapılacaktır. Koşulların elverişsiz olması durumunda, fiili olarak katılamayanların sunumları online olarak yapılacak ve ayrıca YouTube’da canlı olarak yayınlanacaktır.

The Congress is open to all areas related to the concept of Society 5.0. Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary studies will be included. We invite all academicians, researchers, educators, non-governmental organizations and students interested in the theme of the conference to participate in this information feast.

The language of the conference is English and Turkish. Papers will be reviewed by a double-blind peer review by at least two members of the Scientific Committee and other independent referees (if needed), in line with the publishing criteria and standards. Abstracts and full-text papers will also be published in the Conference Proceedings Book. In addition, the selected papers will be published in the editorial books and internationally indexed Journals owned by the Rating Academy after the referee evaluation.
