The International Conference on Japan & Japan Studies

Thank you for your interest in The International Conference on Japan & Japan Studies (IICJ). This year Japan Studies proposals should be submitted to The Asian Conference on Asian Studies 2018 (ACAS2018) or The Asian Conference on Cultural Studies 2018 (ACCS2018), which will run from Friday, June 01, 2018 ​to Sunday, June 03, 2018.

IICJ will not be run as a separate conference this year; its streams have been folded into ACAS2018 and ACCS2018. We encourage you to submit your abstract to one of these events.

Please contact us at the respective email addresses accs@iafor.org or acas@iafor.org if you have any questions.

These conferences bring together educators, researchers and distinguished professors from around the world to share their insights. The goal is to broaden awareness of different contexts in the pursuit of synergies and solutions. We look forward to your active participation in this vital field of future-oriented academic activity of The International Academic Forum.

In conjunction with our Global Partners, including Osaka University (Japan), Lehigh University (USA) and the University of Barcelona (Spain), we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
