What is the Asia Pacific Conference?
The Asia Pacific Conference began in 2003. Every year, the conference features keynote speeches from well-known researchers and prominent individuals on cutting-edge research and current development issues in the Asia Pacific region. There are also panel session presentations at the conference that encompass a wide range of topics. During the Asia Pacific Conference 2019, about 200 participants came from 20 different countries and regions. It is known as one of Japan’s largest humanities and social sciences conference held in English.
The 18th Asia Pacific Conference, which has the theme “Asia Pacific and Beyond: A Pursuit for Inclusion and Innovation”, will be held online on November 14 (Sat) – November 15 (Sun), 2020. Audience admission to the conference is free but requires a prior registration, and details on the registration will be announced at a later date.

Since many participants will be unable to enter Japan or come to the university due to the current situation with the global COVID-19 pandemic, and because of the need to avoid the "three Cs" (closed spaces, crowded places, and close-contact settings) as much as possible, the conference will be held using Zoom.
