The Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, through its ASEAN University Network for University Social Responsibility and Sustainability (AUN USR&S) Secretariat, will be holding its 3rd AsiaEngage Regional Conference. This will be in collaboration with the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University in Manila, Philippines. The theme is "Universities in an Integrating Regional Community: Engagement with Government, Communities, Industries, and Civil Societies." The conference will be held from 21 to 23 November 2016 at the SMX Convention Centre, Pasay City, Manila, Philippines.
Academics and community engagement practitioners are invited to submit their abstracts which will be subject to a review by the conference Scientific Committee. Submissions may be made through the conference website at http://asiaengage.up.edu.ph/until 30 June 2016.
The conference will be an avenue to showcase your institution's sustainable community engagement initiatives and programs, especially those that are integrated into the curriculum. Should an abstract from your esteemed institution be chosen, this could also mean positive publicity for the faculty and university in the form of conference proceedings, highlights in the conference reports, and online publications and visibility.
Organizers are targeting 300-400 participants from across ASEAN and Asia, as well as about 150 papers and 100 posters to be presented. Key attendees would be from various influential international networks, such as the ASEAN University Network and many others.
The pre-registration fee for participants from the Philippines is PhP 8,000.00 inclusive of kits, certificates, snacks and lunch for three days, and dinner on the first night but exclusive of transportation, accommodation, breakfast, and dinner for the subsequent nights.
