The 2016 theme will be announced early 2016

13th Annual East Asia Security Symposium: Conference
China Foreign Affairs University, Beijing
1 July 2016

The 2016 conference will focus on new research in fields such as diplomacy, history, international conflict management, global political economy, international relations, peace studies and strategic theory. Participants in this ongoing series of conferences represent numerous disciplines, and often employ inter-disciplinary methods in developing their research.

Peer Reviewed Research Output Opportunities

The conference offers participants two peer-reviewed research output opportunities.

  • Peer-Reviewed Conference Paper: Those participants wishing to have their conference paper peer-reviewed and published may request this in consultation with the conference directors and should do so prior to the conference. The East Asian Studies Center at China Foreign Affairs University regularly publishes peer reviewed papers as does the East Asia Security Centre's Peer-reviewed Publishing Site at Bond University. You may publish in English, Mandarin or both.
  • Book Chapter: From previous conference presentations Bond University Press has published the book Chinese Engagements: Regional Issues with Global Implications (Hardcopy and Kindle Version). The book China's Strategic Priorities is to be published by Routledge Press. Both books have been co-edited by the directors of the conference Brett McCormick and Jonathan H. Ping. Our expectation is to continue compiling appropriately related papers for similar book publications.

Format and Eligibility

Conference presentations are ten minutes in length; all customary presentation facilities are provided. All registered participants in the East Asia Security Symposium are eligible to present papers. Non symposium participants are able to present but must submit an abstract (500 words) for review prior to the conference and pay a US$200 conference fee. Applicants will be notified of acceptance within two weeks of abstract submission.
