would like to invite you to prepare a proposal for the 11th International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS), which is the most inclusive international gathering in the field of Asian Studies.

The meeting place for the eleventh edition of ICAS is Leiden, the Netherlands. The historic city of Leiden is home to one of the oldest universities, Leiden University, and several of the most renowned Asia research centers. Leiden University will be the main host of ICAS 11, partnering with the city, research institutions and museums, who share equally rich Asian and global connections.
Please note that all abstracts and presentations should be in English. Participants will be notified around mid-December 2018 about the selection results. Further information about registration fees, accommodation, and logistics will be provided on the ICAS website after completion of the review process.
