Congress

The Congrès Asie is the major event organized by the GIS Asie every two years. It is the largest Asian Studies gathering in France that crosses disciplinary and sub-area boundaries. It is an international conference, with a large proportion of participants from Europe, Asia and America. It is always co-organized with a member institution and the conference languages are French and English. The programme includes mainly thematic panels, guest conferences, roundtables and a book fair with the presence of major publishing houses. It is a learning opportunity for young researchers, whose participation is highly encouraged and funded by travel grants.

In 2019 it will be co-organized with the International Institute of Asian Studies, and will run concurrently with ICAS 11 (International Convention of Asian Scholars). It will take place on 16-19 July 2019 at the University of Leiden, in the Netherlands.
