About the International Convention of Asia Scholars 10

The Tenth International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS 10) was held at the Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Centre (CMECC) in Chiang Mai, Thailand from 20-23 July 2017. It has been organized by the Regional Center for Social Science and Sustainable Development (RSCD), with support from the Faculty of Social Sciences of Chiang Mai University (CMU), and the International Institute for Asian Studies.

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. The ICAS Secretariat is hosted by the International Institute for Asian Studies in the Netherlands.

Experts in the field of Asian Studies met in the delightful Northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, famous for its rich cultural heritage. Events included: panels and roundtable discussions, keynote speeches, craft exhibitions, a film and documentary festival and an Asian Studies Book Fair.
