AICOSH 2020 About

    The massive use of information and communication technology is changing the face of the industry. The industrial revolution 4.0 has triggered digitalization and automation in various sectors in industrial processes. This allows for major changes in the business model so that new businesses emerge and disrupt conventional established businesses that have long existed. Not yet finished with that, Japan emerged with the concept of society 5.0 which made humans at the center of technological development. The concept of Society 5.0 seeks to create a balance between technology as a trigger for economic development and as a means to improve people’s lives and social welfare.
     Proposed by the Prime Minister of Japan in 2017, Society 5.0 follows the history of social development. It is considered as the fifth society after the hunting society (Society 1.0), agricultural society (Society 2.0), industrial society (Society 3.0), and information society (Society 4.0) (Harayama, 2017). Although based on the realization of the increased added value built upon Society 4.0, Society 5.0 is not only about the digitalization of manufacturing. It is the digitalization of all aspects of life, as Japan is now ready to move towards the creations of “super-smart society”. Additionally, the introduced concept of Society 5.0 is not just about technology adoption. The implementation of Society 5.0 relies on three pillars, namely digital society based on human and machine collaboration, multilevel cooperation across regions, borders, and time; and human resources development (The MEXT, 2016). As such, it includes massive data processing in cyberspace collected from human activities and other physical objects. The processed products will form the basis of decisions that create efficiency, security, comfort, health, and more balanced welfare distribution.
     Since introduced in 2017, Society 5.0 has been spreading and its underlying concepts continue to be shaped, particularly in developed countries that have the foundation and readiness built upon Society 4.0. Promised to advance the potential of individual-technology relationships in encouraging the improvement of the quality of life of all people through super smart societies, the concept of Society 5.0 is likely to become a core idea in the near future. Society 5.0 emerged, in large part, as (con)sequences of the application of Industry 4.0 in the mobilization of technology for production. However, some questions might arise from such circumstances. For example, how do social sciences respond to these changes? What are the roles of social sciences in particular psychology, sociology, and communication, to guide social development in diverse social contexts that may have a large impact on society at all levels, such as in terms of quality of life and sustainability? To what extent do changes in society affect the dynamics of civil society or Madani society? And, to what extent do social theories are relevant to the current and future challenges emerge from Society 5.0? 
     Based on the above-mentioned background and potential questions, Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta will hold the 2nd Annual International Conference on Social Sciences and Humanities 2020 (the 2nd  AICOSH 2020)  on 24-26 March 2020, and invite scholars from all over the world to discuss these issues.
     This International Conference aims to deepen, through empirical research or reflection, on what is the contribution of the social sciences in the analysis and innovation of Society 5.0; and the issues and perspectives that emerge from its design and implementation. In other words, the 2nd  AICOSH 2020) is a contribution to expanding our understanding of this phenomenon at all levels of analysis. So as to meet this purpose, we aim to invite the submission of original works, in the form of empirical research, reviews, and theoretical or conceptual papers, using both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.
