This is a meaty conference, with something for all disciplines, co-organised by the British Associations for Chinese, Japanese and Korean Studies with the SOAS Centre of Taiwan Studies. The book of abstracts of the conference papers alone extends to 157 pages. The list of panelists is 12 pages long. And spread over 3 days at SOAS, with up to 8 panel sessions going on simultaneously it is quite clearly impossible to attend every talk. Take your pick from the conference programme here, and book your place here. Full details on the SOAS website.
