Join us online for SIX full days of engaging sessions, exhibits, special events and more!

Association for Asian Studies Virtual Annual Conference

The AAS Annual Conference is going Virtual!

Due to the continuing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including city and state-wide restrictions on large gatherings, international and institution travel restrictions, the AAS Annual Conference will take place completely online.

We have transformed the conference to an virtual event that features the same great programming you've grown accustomed to, as well as included some new features that we hope will impress.

Key Reasons to Attend

Education and Scholarship
More sessions and activities at your finger tips. The virtual conference program will be extended to six (6) days and will allow for conflict-free attendance as the 350+ sessions will be available to view live or on-demand for an additional 30 days after the scheduled dates. Join us live or anytime at your convenience.

Resources and Connections
The virtual conference will include an interactive exhibit hall where attendees can browse publications and engage in live video chats with exhibit booth personnel and publisher representatives. Watch videos, download brochures and information- available for 24 hours a day, everyday, via our virtual exhibit hall.

Activities and Events
We know nothing can take place of in-person receptions, hugs and handshakes, but the AAS virtual conference will still allow for attendees to network via video chat with other attendees. Mentoring sessions, informal chat rooms, and other fun activities will all be a part of the virtual event

Reduced Rates & Savings
Our virtual annual conference will offer most of the elements of a traditional AAS annual at a a reduced cost. No airfare or hotel rates, make this virtual conference affordable for all.
