The International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS) is the largest international gathering in the field of Asian Studies. ICAS attracts participants from over 60 countries to engage in global dialogues on Asia that transcend boundaries between academic disciplines and geographic areas. Since 1997, ICAS has brought more than 20,000 academics together at nine conventions.
Join us in Chiang Mai, famous for its rich cultural heritage; conveniently located within a five-hour flight from all major Asian cities and easily accessible from all other continents. Thailand offers visa-free entry for nationals from 52 countries.
ICAS 10 will offer a unique opportunity for participating institutions and individuals from various academic, cultural and political domains, to explore beyond their specialisations and engage with professionals and civil society actors from Thailand, Southeast Asia and beyond. The ICAS 10 Organising Committee has put together a set of potential activities for your consideration. Institutions are invited to build and sponsor a programme of activities to enhance their institution’s visibility. A tailor-made Institutional programme will increase exposure and deliver a richer experience of the convention, with more opportunities for network building and interaction with potential partners.
