IX World Congress of ICCEES
August 3-8, 2015 // Chiba, Japan.
The International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES) is the global alliance of national associations of Slavic and Eurasian studies, composed of the ASEEES (United States), CAS (Canada), BASEES (Britain), DGO / SOG (Germany), FAREES (Finland), ANZSA (Australia), CAREECAS (China), JCREES (Japan), KASS (Korea), and MACEES (Mongolia), and other respectable organizations. The ICCEES was created in 1974 and holds a world congress once every five years. The next world congress will be held in Makuhari (30 minutes from the heart of Tokyo), Japan, on August 3-8, 2015. The official languages of the congress are English, Russian, French, and German.
2015 — The Year of the ICCEES World Congress
During the last several years, Japanese specialists on Slavic and Eurasian studies worked hard for the World Congress of ICCEES (International Council for Central and East European Studies) to be held in Makuhari on August 3-8, 2015. For example, the 5th East Asian Conference on Slavic Eurasian studies held at Osaka University of Economics and Law (Yao Campus) on August 9-10, 2013 was a "general rehearsal" for the world congress. This event, thanks to the generous support by the university and its president, Professor Wakio Fujimoto, was a great success. It is worth mentioning that a number of ICCEES leaders from Europe and Oceania took part in the conference. The Osaka conference created an agora where “many Wests meets many Easts.”
In 2014, this assembly was multiplied by the active cooperation of Japanese and foreign specialists. As of today, 1,761 of our colleagues have registered as Congress participants and 450 panels and roundtables have been organized. Obviously, the World Congress in Makuhari will be one of the largest congresses in the history of ICCEES. During the months leading up to the congress, the Organizing Committee is working to bridge the academic and business worlds and involve the latter in the world congress. This endeavor will result in a significant increase of representatives from business circles among the congress participants. [...]
