International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS)

Welcome to ICAS 9! The International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS) is the premier international gathering in Asian Studies and Asia-related research.

Held every two years, the next ICAS will be held in Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, from 5-9 July 2015.
Over 1,500 participants are expected, from some 60 countries. There will be large numbers especially from Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. There will also be participants from other continents.

The conference is not just for Asia specialists from Asian studies departments at universities. It is also for others who have a research interest in Asia, including academics from other disciplines. Doing work on business, food, wine, tourism, defence, energy or other issues involving Asia, but don’t see yourself as an ‘Asianist’? We can benefit from hearing from you, while you will be able to highlight your expertise and learn from others.

ICAS 9 is being held in conjunction with the annual conference of the Australian Political Studies Association (APSA) and the annual/biennial conferences of the Chinese Studies Association of Australia (CSAA), the South Asian Studies Association of Australia, the Malaysia and Singapore Society of Australia. ICAS participants will be able to attend these conference sessions at no additional cost, providing unprecedented opportunities for networking and new research linkages.

The conference is hosted by South Australia’s three public universities: the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia. It is supported by the Asian Studies Association of Australia.
