Conference Theme

The conference theme for Aurs2016 is “Students as Colleagues: New Directions”. The Asian Conference on Education (ACE) one of the largest international academic conferences in Asia, includes the Undergraduate Research Symposium (AURS). AURS provides undergraduates with an exciting opportunity to present and learn from researchers and professionals from around the globe. Following the inaugural conference in 2015, ACE is again reaching out to undergraduate scholars from across all fields and disciplines to participate in the 2016 symposium. Here, students will share their academic research experiences and the knowledge they have acquired as an undergraduate working with professors or academic mentors.

AURS provides you with a motivating and thought-provoking opportunity to present your research, network with other undergraduates and academics from around the world, and learn of the ways in which your participation in the symposium can aid you in your future directions. All student presenters will also have the ability to attend other academic sessions as an observer during the conference. AURS2016 takes place in a supportive and collegial environment in beautiful Kobe.

About IAFOR and its events

IAFOR welcomes thousands of academics to our conferences each year, which range in size from around 100 to in excess of 500 attendees. They do so because of the supportive and nurturing research environment, because of the unique networking opportunities, and because of the strength of the organization’s platform.

Our conferences are meticulously planned and programmed under the direction of prominent academics to ensure that they offer programs of the highest level, and are also quite unique in the way in which they are supported by some of the world’s leading academic institutions, including the University of London (UK), Virginia Tech (USA), Monash University (Australia), Barcelona University (Spain), Waseda University (Japan), the National Institute of Education (Singapore), and The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKSAR).

IAFOR’s credibility has enabled it to become a genuine pioneer, and has grown to be the most respected and trusted organization encouraging international, intercultural and interdisciplinary study. The organization is a formative influence in providing new research avenues and visionary development solutions necessary in our rapidly emerging globalized world.

We welcome you to engage in this expanding global academic community of individuals and network of institutions, and look forward to seeing you at one of our future events, as we look forward to breaking new ground, together.
