The International Journal of Arts & Sciences (IJAS) has purposely left Venice for the end of the academic year, as a celebration of scholarship twinned with cultural and international education. Founded in 1868, Ca' Foscari University (also known as the University of Venice) has about 20,000 enrolled students. Its most famous partnership program in summer is with Harvard University. We include Ca' Foscari in our summer conferences circuit as an extension of our annual May conference on the Harvard campus.
Please note that although this conference will be held on the Ca’ Foscari University campus, in no way should the availability of Ca’ Foscari’s premises be construed as if this were a conference organized by Ca’ Foscari. As an academic organization, the International Journal of Arts and Sciences (IJAS) hosts research and study abroad events on several campuses in North America and Europe. Only IJAS is responsible and accountable for its own conferences and cultural programs. Questions about the conference should be directed to IJAS at firstname.lastname@example.org and not to Ca’ Foscari.
