The aim of this inaugural International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. By bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACAS 2011 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

Conference Theme: "Learning from the Past: Looking to the Future"

There is no more exciting context than Japan through which to study the interdisciplinary questions of past and future, and differences and similarities of culture, identity, belief, and history relating to the huge field of Asian Studies. The conference theme is "Learning from the Past: Looking to the Future" and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this question from a variety of perspectives. The conference will organize submissions around the following streams, and encourages submissions from scholars working in these domains:

Indian and South Asian Studies, South-East Asian Studies (including Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos), Central Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, Japanese Studies, Korean Studies,Middle Eastern Studies (including Assyria, Iran, Egypt, Turkey),Islamic Studies, Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Comparative Studies of Asian and East Asian Studies
