The kickoff for the 2013 SAIS Asia Conference is well underway! Plans for the conference are in full swing here at SAIS. We had a terrific inaugural event last year, and excitement is buzzing over here in anticipation for bigger event, involving more schools and exploring new and exciting issues. Here is an update on where we are:
The conference will be held April 4th, 2013 at Johns Hopkins SAIS in Washington, D.C. The theme this year is Development and Security in Asia.
Calls for abstracts have been distributed throughout schools along the East Coast and we are excited to begin receiving submissions. The deadline for abstracts is Monday November 26th. Full papers are also welcome at this time. The full announcement is below.
The SAIS Asia Conference is unique in that it is the only graduate-level conference of its kind focusing on Asia. Graduate-level and PhD candidates are welcomed to submit papers for consideration. The selected student panelists will receive feedback and comments on their papers and presentations from a wide and impressive range of academics and policymakers (issues related to growth, security, development, and foreign policy in all parts of East, South, North, and Southeast Asia).
Two years ago the SAIS Asia Conference was formed out of response to the need for a graduate-level conference focusing specifically on Asia. The Conference brings together graduate and doctoral students, academics, policymakers, and innovators and leaders in the private and nonprofit world impacting Asia. This gathering provides an exciting and unique opportunity to explore and discuss some of the most important issues unfolding in Asia today.
Interested in participating? Prepare a submission! Guidelines are in the full call for abstracts below. If you have any questions, we welcome you to contact us!
Thanks for reading and look forward to seeing everyone in April!
