6th IAFOR Asian Conference on Literature and Librarianship (LibrAsia) 2016 Kobe

  • Conference Call
  • This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will again bring together a range of aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss new direc­tions of research and dis­cov­ery in lit­er­a­ture and librar­i­an­ship. As with other events of the Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR), LibrAsia2016 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    Once again the 6th Asian Con­fer­ence on Lit­er­a­ture, Librar­i­an­ship & Archival Sci­ence (LibrA­sia) will again be held along­side the 7th Asian Con­fer­ence on Arts and Human­i­ties. Both events will be held in Kobe, Japan on April 710, 2016. Reg­is­tra­tion for either con­fer­ence will allow atten­dees to attend ses­sions in the other.
