Abstract: Coupled with the fast pace of population growth, the fierce exploitation of world resources to the extent of depletion, and the contamination of water, air, and land culminate in major irrevocable problems for all the dwellers of the Earth, including us, the human beings. Among these irrevocable problems, though not yet at a level of colossal devastation, we have already begun to feel some of the impacts of global warming. With this urgency of action mind, the theme of the 4th International Applied Social Sciences Congress was “Applicable Knowlegde for A Sustainable Future”. The conference was held between 22nd and 24th October, 2020, virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the partnerships of academics from Malta University, İzmir Kavram Vocational School, Aydın Adnan Menderes University, (Faculty of Tourism), and Balıkesir University. With the ever increasing internationalisation of the conference, the international participation in this congress reached its peak over the four consecutive years. There were 70 scientists from 20 different countries on the scientific board of the 4th C-IASOS Congress. Over 70 papers were presented by academics participating from 30 different countries in five continents. There were participants from as far places as Australia, Ecuador, South Africa, Pakistan and Mexico, and also from neighbouring countries, such as, Greece, Serbia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. Following the opening speech by the Honorary President, the keynote speeches were delivered by Prof. Dr. Frank Bezzina and Prof. Dr. Vincent Cassar from the University of Malta (Evidence-Based Management: Old Wine in New Bottles or a Breath of Fresh Air) and Associate Professor Paniel Osberto Reyes Cárdenas (Inquiry Conceived as a Goal-directed Activity Led by Questioning and Sensitivity to Context). Following the opening ceremony on the first day, the conference sessions were held on two consecutive days on Friday and Saturday. During the evenings virtual events, in the form of art exhibitions, workshops, philosophy and literature discussions and colloquiums were also held. We would like to thanks to all the stakeholders who have made this congress successful. We hope to see you all in the next year’s conference, hopefully not virtually, but in person.
