Due to its focus on Asia and to the high accessibility for Asia-based institutions, this conference provides a great opportunity for institutions around the world to meet with Asian counterparts.

With the majority of its international students to NAIST coming from Asia and the current world-wide interest in Asia, three members from the Center for International Relations, Steven Nishida (director), Junko Iwatsuki (coordinator), and Junko Machida attended to the conference to promote communication, networking, and professional development.
