Our Response to COVID-19

We are with everyone in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with IAFOR's spirit of connecting people through conferences to assist global, interdisciplinary collaborations, our conferences until the end of June have gone online while members and participants are unable to travel freely. Please check for more information through the individual conference sites.


Present, Publish, Participate

Continued excellence in service, wherever you are

Our commitment to you; academics, scholars and educators around the world, is to continue to run conferences where and how possible, but in the full knowledge that in these unprecedented and changing times, we must engage as much as is possible online, allowing those who choose not to travel, or who cannot travel, opportunities to present, publish and participate online.


Flexibility

Given the uncertainties surrounding travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, and related and evolving government responses, we understand that potential delegates' plans may be subject to change beyond their control, and indeed many people may not be able to travel to our conferences. We will be as flexible as we can our side to allow delegates to switch registration types between "on-site" and "online" depending on their circumstances, up until one month before the conference, so that you can be assured that whatever your situation, you can still present, publish and participate.


AAS-in-Asia 2020

In response to the ongoing coronavirus global pandemic, and following extensive consultation with different stakeholders, the Boards of the AAS and IAFOR have jointly decided to postpone the AAS-in-Asia 2020 conference to August 31 to September 02, 2020, offering the conference both on-site and online. Both the AAS and IAFOR take these decisions in the hope and expectation that a further two months will allow more time for the situation to continue to return to normal in Asia, and for travel restrictions to be relaxed, and in the knowledge that the work of many presenters is time-sensitive.
