  • Conference Call
  • The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) will be organising the forthcoming 6th edition of the International Asian Conference on Cultural Studies (ACCS), which will commence on June 2 – 5, 2016 in Kobe, Japan.

    This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in education. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACCS2016 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

    The ACCS 2016 will be held alongside the 6th Asian Conference on Asian Studies (ACAS) and the International Conference on Japan and Japan Studies (IICJ). Registration for one of these conferences will allow attendees to attend sessions in the others.
