      Theme

      The East-West Center International Graduate Student Conference (IGSC) is an annual interdisciplinary conference that welcomes presentations in a number of thematic and disciplinary areas focusing on the Asia Pacific region, and/or the relationship/interaction of the US with the Asia Pacific region. For the purposes of the conference, Asia Pacific is defined to include:  South Asia, East Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, all the Pacific Rim nations and Pacific Islands, and Russia.

      Abstracts

      The East-West Center invites graduate students from all around the world to submit papers for the 9th Annual International Graduate Student Conference, taking place in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on February 11-13, 2010. The Conference will provide an opportunity to share perspectives formally (through presenting their papers and attending other panel presentations) and informally in the warm and encouraging environment of the East-West Center in Hawaii.

      Abstracts (up to a maximum of 500 words in length) of proposed papers or posters are invited from intending participants at this time. If the abstracts are accepted, participants will be asked to resubmit the shortened version of their abstract (about 100 words) for the purpose of compiling them into a handy small program and summaries booklet. Papers are encouraged from the array of disciplines focusing on the region.  Fields represented in past conferences include Politics, Governance, and Security; Economics; Environmental Change and Vulnerability; Population and Health; Education, History, Language, Linguistics, Culture and Arts.  A set of sample abstracts from previous conference may be perused here.

      Submission Format

      Please complete the following abstract submission form and submit it electronically to the conference address:  studentconference@...

      Other Information

      A very small number of travel grants available from the East-West Center will be provided on a meritorious basis. However, potential participants are encouraged to apply for travel assistance from their home institutions or other sources available to them due to the limited nature of this provision. If you decide to apply for the travel grant, please complete the travel grant section on the abstract submission form.

      Housing accommodation at the East-West Center residence halls will be made available for conference participants at a special rate.

      Post-Conference Publications

      Presenters will also have the opportunity to submit their conference papers to be considered for publication in the East-West Center's working paper series. Our editorial board will review all papers, and selected papers will be published after the conference. For past issues of the working paper series, click here.
