The Congress, co-organized by the AKS, ISKS, AKSE and KSAA, will provide a venue where those involved in Korean studies can join together to explore the latest achievements and developments in Korean studies worldwide. Our conference will be truly international in character, and will represent Korean study organizations in Europe, Australasia, Japan, China, Southeast Asia, South Asia, North America, and both Koreas.

This conference seeks to explore the interaction and coalescing of Korean and foreign cultures in both the pre-modern and modern eras.  Through the papers and discussions at this conference, we hope to engender interdisciplinary deliberations on the foundations of Korean culture and permit a better understanding for future discourses.

The Congress will hold 10 panels: (1) Language, (2) Literature, (3) Thought/Religion, (4) Art, (5) Folklore, (6) Sociology/ Anthropology, (7) Political Science, (8) Economics, (9) Education, and (10) History/ Archeology. We welcome both individual paper proposals and suggestions for panels other than those specified above. All submissions will be scrutinized by anonymous review, and those selected will be presented at the Congress. 

As interdisciplinary and multicultural dialogue among professionals is encouraged, the Congress will provide an ideal opportunity not only for established scholars, but also for younger scholars as well as Ph.D. students to share their knowledge and research findings and to build up an international network.

Those interested are required to submit the basic information outlined below along with a one-page abstract. Panel proposals should include both abstracts for each paper and the panel.  Abstracts and panel proposals can be written in either Korean or English and should be submitted electronically: congress at aks.ac.kr.  

All abstracts should include the following information:

Name of presenter (including chair and discussants for panels)
Title of individual paper or panel
The panel in which your paper should be included   
Field of study 
E-mail Address
Phone Number
Fax Number 
Mailing Address 

The registration fee for the Congress is US $20 payable on arrival on July 18, 2002 and will cover Congress kit, lunch, tea/coffee, snacks, one copy of the Congress proceedings and various events (currently expected to include a reception, a banquet and a special cultural program).  

We will provide free meals during the Congress and offer travel grants to offset the cost of international travel for participants. However, this support will not be applicable to individuals who can obtain support from their own institution. In addition, we will provide on campus accommodations (a double room at the Academy at either the guest or student dormitory) to international participants at a cost of US $8 per night. 

If you have any questions regarding the Congress, please feel free to contact the Organizing Committee for the Congress. Thank you very much for your kind attention.
