The theme for 2018, Area studies and beyond, builds upon the traditional interdisciplinary fields of research within Asian Studies and seeks to move beyond them, to celebrate the full breadth and depth of interest in Asia across all fields of research.

We strongly encourage multi-country or multi-disciplinary representation, as well as gender balance and the inclusion of a combination of junior and senior scholars, in all proposals. In addtion to a broad range of disciplinary and thematic streams, panels on professional practice are welcome.
