The Asia-Europe Sustainable Connectivity Scientific Conference (AESCON) - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


The Asia-Europe Sustainable Connectivity Scientific Conference (AESCON) will be held in Singapore 26-28 February, 2020 and will be hosted by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, the Asia Europe Foundation, the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia and the Center for China and Globalization.

AESCON is the first scientific conference on Asia-Europe sustainable connectivity, bringing together researchers and policy analysts working in the field of international connectivity, globalization and their impacts on sustainable development, with a particular focus on AsiaEurope connections. At a time of increasing connectivity, the conference aims to provide an academic forum to discuss global challenges on transport infrastructure, energy transition, climate change, digital economy, trade and investment flows, security, people mobility, cultural exchanges, among others.

The conference will be used as an open platform for debate on sustainable connectivity, to spur future research linked to policy needs and to build a network of Asia-Europe researchers working on sustainable connectivity. AESCON will be anchored by contributions from researchers on themes related to Asia-Europe sustainable connectivity and by keynote presentations.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to AESCON. Abstracts must be submitted via the online submission system at www.aescon.org

Please note that abstract applications will not be accepted by e-mail. All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee. Following review, authors will be notified of their abstracts acceptance – if accepted, authors will be invited to submit an extended abstract and to present their research at AESCON. All extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings.
