Call for Submissions closing May 31st - 7th International Conference of Lao Studies

Sam Hoang's picture

Dear Colleagues,

Could you please share this reminder about the Lao Studies Conference? The deadline for submissions is May 31st. This is Australian time, so for many the close date will fall on the 30th. We are only a small conference so currently we do not intend to extend the call for submissions. Therefore, if people are interested in presenting work at this conference, they will need to submit by the due date to be sure their proposals will be considered.

Kind regards

Sam Hoang (Alfred Deakin Institute)
