Special Message: Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

UPDATE: March 19, 2020

IAFOR is aware of the current developments regarding the novel coronavirus including travel restrictions currently in place as countries try to control the spread of the virus.

We will continue to monitor the evolving situation, and will update conference attendees should this affect the events in any way.

Please be advised that IAFOR conferences held in March 2020 will now be held online. Read a message from the IAFOR Board of Directors.

IAFOR conferences will continue as scheduled from May 2020 onwards in Japan. This includes the Association of Asian Studies in Asia Conference.

We understand that some registered participants from some countries are now facing travel restrictions beyond their control, who may have to either cancel their participation or continue with their presentations virtually, or by video conference where available.
