Meeting Description:

Welcome to the inaugural Asian Conference on Education, to be held on October
24-25 2009, at the MyDome International Conference Center, Osaka Japan.

The aim of ACE is to encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas
and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.

The conference will bring together a number of university scholars working
throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas. ACE will afford the
opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking
across higher education.

It is hoped that academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge
working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe
and the US, facilitating partnerships across borders.
