The Opening Program, Keynote Addresses and Plenary Sessions will be held in the Freedom Hall of LPU-Batangas, 4th Floor, SHL Building, LPU Campus, Batangas City. All participants to the Congress are expected to attend these sessions. The breakout panel sessions will be held in smaller rooms on the 4th floor of the same building. Participants are free to select the panels they wish to attend. Every regular member-association of PSSC is expected to organize a panel. Accepted individual abstracts will be assigned to panels with similar thematic contents. In addition, commercial panels from research institutions, software developers, and other research or social development practitioners are welcome.
To date, we expect around 200-250 participants. Those who have already submitted abstracts and registered for the Congress include social scientists and students from different parts of the country, extending from Northern Luzon, Metro Manila, and Southern Luzon, to Cagayan de Oro. We also expect practitioners, policy makers, and bilateral and multilateral development partners to attend the Congress.
