AAS-in-Asia 2020 Call for Proposals Now Open

The Association for Asian Studies (AAS) and The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) are now accepting proposals for the 2020 AAS-in-Asia conference, to be held June 29-July 1, 2020 in Kobe, Japan.

The AAS-in-Asia Program Committee welcomes proposals for organized panel sessions and roundtables. Individual papers will not be considered. Organized panels consist of formal paper presenters (3-5 papers maximum) each delivering a 15-20 minute presentation, a chair, and a moderator (discussant). Roundtables provide opportunities for participants with specific expertise to discuss with each other, and with members of the audience, issues or themes concerning a discipline or an Asian regional area. This session type consists of a chair and 4-5 panelists that serve as discussants.

Please see the Call for Proposals for complete information about proposal requirements and submission instructions.

Session organizers who submitted a proposal to the postponed Hong Kong AAS-in-Asia conference must re-submit to have their proposals considered for inclusion on the Kobe program. This is an entirely new Call for Proposals, with no relationship to the Hong Kong CFP. Organizers are free to edit their previous proposals in any way, and the Kobe Program Committee will not have access to the prior version. Session organizers who wish to download a copy of their Hong Kong proposal may do so by logging in to the old CFP portal, which has been maintained for their reference.

The deadline for proposal submission is February 10, 2020.

Please contact IAFOR at aasinasia@iafor.org if you have any questions about preparing or submitting a proposal. We look forward to meeting you in Kobe!
