In this congress, it is aimed to discuss WWI in the narrow sense and in the wide sense the study of war in terms of social sciences (history, literature, sociology, law, finance, psychology, art history, etc.). One of the main objectives of this congress is to determine in the local and the global scales the effects of the wars, which are unfortunately an inseparable part of human history, on societies and to express its effects on civilizing process. Panel suggestions will be accepted in the congress. The abstracts of the accepted papers will be published as an e-book before the congress.
