9th ASLI Conference 2012
The purpose of the annual conference is to bring together scholars of Asian law from within and outside Asia to interact, share ideas and build collegial networks which may facilitate dialogue and research collaborations. In addition to the paper presentations and Distinguished Lecture, there will be a Research Forum and Poster Presentation.
We hope that the research forum will be widely used to bring together collaborators in various projects. Presenters and non-presenters are encouraged to connect with fellow academics before the conference and to start thinking about potential research projects.
The broad theme of the 2012 conference is "Law: An Asian Identity?" and will be held from 31st May to 1st June, 2012.
Call for papers:
There will be four papers per panel to give presenters and discussants adequate time for fruitful engagement. In preparing abstracts of their proposed papers, we encourage prospective participants to address the conference theme. In addition to the general call for individual papers, we also encourage individuals to organize their own panels by coordinating with colleagues, preferably from other ASLI institutions. This will allow for the panels to be more cohesive and will also foster greater collaboration between academics, which is one of the key aims of ASLI.
Slection criteria for papersSubmissions of individual papers & posters
The papers accepted for presentation at the ASLI conference will be selected on a competitive selection process. The quality of papers has improved considerably in recent years and, equally importantly, the quality of discussion surrounding the papers has also been elevated. For this year's conference, we intend to select 120 papers for presentation at the parallel sessions, as well as 25 posters. The selection will be done jointly by the ASLI Secretariat and NUS. The selection criteria will be as follows:
- Relevance to the broad theme
- Quality of the abstract
- Geographical diversity of presenters
- Balance between senior and junior presenters
Participants should indicate the title of their paper and the proposed panel category (based on the list provided in the abstract submission form). They should also indicate key words, identifying the theme of their paper, to assist in the categorization process. Example
- Name of presenter: Mr XXX
- Title of paper: "Islamic banking and the global financial crisis"
- Category: Financial Law
- Keyword: Religion, Religious laws, Corporate
- Abstract: Description of paper in not more than 300 words
- Speaker's Bio: Brief description of professional status, education background and experience in not more than 250 words.
