AAS Annual Conference, March 24-27, Honolulu, Hawai'i & Online

The AAS is looking forward to once again hosting in-person meetings in 2022. Please mark the date of the upcoming conference and join us in Honolulu, Hawai'i next spring.


2022 Annual Conference

The Association for Asian Studies annual conference is the largest academic conference worldwide dedicated exclusively to Asian Studies research with topics covering all countries in Asia across 30 academic disciplines. The AAS annual conference is the ideal setting to meet face-to-face with senior and junior faculty in the field as well as students, administrators, librarians, foundation and museum staff, and program managers alike.

Join us March 24-27, 2022 at the Hawai'i Convention Center and the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Resort Hotel, in Honolulu, Hawaii next Spring at this hybrid event. The AAS 2022 program will include both in-person sessions and virtual sessions. Both formats will also include networking opportunities and opportunities to connect with Exhibitors.

Attendees in Hawaii can expect to see enhanced health and safety measures and protocols, should they be necessary at the time of the event, which will include hand sanitizer stations, and masks onsite, daily temperature screenings, social distancing in meeting spaces, exhibit halls, and high traffic areas; as well a deep cleaning throughout the day and overnight.  We are working diligently with the venues, local governments, local officials, and our selected vendors to ensure the conference will take place in an environment that is both safe and inclusive.
