Call for Expressions of Interest: the Modern Art Asia Conference
Conference Date: November 2013
Conference Location: Online
Submission Deadline: Sept 1, 2013
At its foundation, Modern Art Asia was envisaged as a forum for early
career researchers to exchange and test ideas. In order to realise this
vision, we have for some time considered the feasibility of hosting a
conference, but our extremely international readership, and our desire
to be as inclusive as possible, has presented logistical obstacles.
However, we are now exploring the idea of hosting a conference virtually.
The increased availability of online conference technologies now makes
the real-time broadcast of conference papers possible. We are looking to
broadcast a live session of presentations, with accompanying slide
presentations, which will also be recorded for later distribution through
If you would be interested to participate in such a conference, please
send a short abstract of 250 words, describing a presentation on any area
of modern and contemporary Asian art, to firstname.lastname@example.org by
September 1st. Papers will not exceed 30 minutes, including time for
questions. The conference is provisionally scheduled for November this year.
Presenters must have access to a webcam and reliable broadband internet
connection in order to participate.
