The AAS-in-ASIA conferences are intended to be smaller size conferences than the typical AAS Annual Conferences.  This conference gives our members and others interested in Asian Studies, who are unable to attend the Annual Conferences held in North America, the opportunity to participate on panel sessions and network with colleagues in a more intimate setting.  Although smaller in size, these conferences include the same exciting features as the Annual Conference, including sessions, keynote speakers, book exhibits and receptions.   

Beginning with the 2022 Conference, the AAS-in-Asia Conference will take place biennially. AAS-in-ASIA conferences are a joint production between the Association for Asian Studies and a local host university and committee.
