Project Overview:
The Arab Council for the Social Sciences (ACSS) is a regional, independent, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening social science research and knowledge production in the Arab world.
 
The ACSS organizes a biennial conference that brings together researchers, academics, activists, students, journalists, policy-makers, grantees, fellows and trustees from the Arab region and different parts of the world. The conference features keynotes, panels, roundtables and other events that examine the issues related to the conference theme, which changes with each edition of the conference (every two years).

The Fourth ACSS Conference will take place on April 12-14, 2019. The ACSS is looking for a team of designers/agency to develop the concept and visual identity of the conference and its applications to the material needed for the event.
