The first forum for the Asian Institutes of Advanced Study was held in 2011 and organised by the Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS). One of the aims of the forum was to create a network of cooperation and collaboration among the various Institutes of Advanced Study. Participants at the forum exchanged experiences, ideas and perspectives on various topics related to challenges and strategies of regional IAS.
Following the successful organisation of the first forum, the second forum on Institutes of Advanced Study or Studies will be held at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Nanyang Technological University from 1 to 2 Dec 2016.
The theme for the second forum will be focused on enhancing and deepening the relations between Asian IAS and IAS around the world. We have therefore extended the invitation worldwide to several IAS beyond the Asia and Asia Pacific region. The second forum will look into the possibility casting a wider network for IAS around the world.
