The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners is
proud to announce the second annual Asian Conference on Education, to be held
from December 2-5 2010, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

The aim of ACE 2010 is to encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange
ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. This international
conference will bring together a number of university scholars working
throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas. ACE 2010 will afford the
opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking
across higher education. 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.

The Asian Conference on Education 2010 is pleased to be affiliated with the
University of London through Birkbeck's Insititute for Lifelong Learning and
Waseda University through the Distance Learning Centre.

Call for Papers

Special Theme: Internationalization or Globalization?

Education systems across the world are becoming increasingly socially,
ethnically and culturally diverse, both as a consequence of globalization and in
response to internationalization. The conference theme, "Globalization or
internationalization?", has a particular focus on adult, distance and access
education, and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this question
from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for
consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a
variety of disciplines and fields related to Education, including:

Adult, Vocational, Distance, and Professional Learning
Arts, Drama and Design
Community, Culture, Globalization and Internationalization
Curriculum and Pedagogy
Economics of Education
Educational Vision, Policy, Leadership, Management and Administration
Equity, Social Justice and Social Change
Institutional Accreditation and Ranking
Languages Education and Applied Linguistics (ESL/TESL/TEFL)
Literacy, Language, Multiliteracies
Maths, Science, and Technology Learning
Organizational Learning and Change
Professional Concerns, Training and Development
Special Education, Learning Difficulties, Disability
Student Learning, Learner Experiences & Learner Diversity

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help
