Call for Papers

Participants are welcome to submit their contributions via the Call for Abstracts at www.aescon.org. 

AESCON welcomes original research on international connectivity and globalisation and its links to sustainable development, with a particular focus on the Asia-Europe context.

Conference topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Transport
  • Energy
  • Digital economy and e-commerce
  • Political and institutional cooperation
  • Education and research
  • Migration
  • Tourism
  • Interoperability
  • Trade
  • Financial networks and flows
  • Cultural exchanges
  • Security
  • Information and Communication Technologies

Research should address international connectivity (as opposed to domestic), and particular preference will be given to research targeting Asia-Europe connectivity.  Research should also adopt an integrated approach to connectivity, by linking the chosen connectivity topic to sustainability considerations and assessments.  Participants are highly encouraged to use data from the ASEM Sustainable Connectivity Portal. Datasets are available in the Repository section.

All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee of AESCON.
