6th QS-APPLE Conference 2010 Call for Proposals from the Academic Conference Committee Deadline - Friday 19 March The success of the QS-APPLE conference since its inception in 2004 has been the active engagement of university leaders, academics and senior administrators, who have contributed to the conference programme by sharing their experiences, providing case studies of internationalisation and taking part in constructive debate about the internationalisation of students, faculty and the curriculum. As chair of the QS-APPLE Academic Conference Committee, I should like to invite you to submit your proposal for a session at the 2010 Conference to our deadline of Friday 19 March 2010. 6th QS-APPLE Wednesday – Friday, 17 – 19 November 2010 Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre, Bangkok, Thailand Local Host - Mahidol University Conference Tracks for 2010 The 6th QS-APPLE Conference will be organised around five broad tracks. Please click on each track to review the illustrative topics covered under each track and the likely target audiences: Track 1: Internationalising the Student Body: International Student Recruitment, Support and Exchange Track 2: Internationalising the Curriculum: Educating Global Citizens Track 3: Building World-Class Universities in the Asia-Pacific: Strategies for Institutional Capacity Building Track 4: Transnational Education and International Partnerships Track 5: The Global Higher Education Market: Trends, Policies and Key Developments The annual QS Asia-Pacific Professional Leaders in Education (QS-APPLE) Conference, now in its 6th year, brings together international educators and administrators from across Asia-Pacific and the world. The mission of QS-APPLE is “to build world-class universities for Asia-Pacific communities through global partnership and collaboration” and the annual conference offers delegates the opportunity to network, exchange best practice and explore the rapidly changing shape of higher education in the Asia-Pacific — the world’s most populous and fastest-growing region. The 5th QS-APPLE Conference, hosted by the University of Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in Kuala Lumpur last November attracted in excess of 700 participants from 40 countries. The 6 th QS-APPLE Conference will be hosted by Mahidol University in Bangkok and promises to be even bigger and better. Criteria for Evaluation of Proposals The conference programme is managed by the QS-APPLE Academic Conference Committee, a committee of independent senior academics and international administrators representing the main Asia-Pacific countries. Its role is to design a balanced programme of informative and thought-provoking sessions. In evaluating proposals for inclusion in the conference programme, the Academic Conference Committee is looking for presentations that will be objective, interactive and promote learning and discussion amongst delegates. Please click on Guidelines for Proposers for further details. The Academic Conference Committee encourages prospective presenters to specify the conference track to which their session is best suited and, if possible, to submit themed sessions with three speakers - eg, a session on “The internationalisation of Asian universities” might fall under the “Track 3: Building World-Class Universities in the Asia-Pacific: Strategies for Institutional Capacity Building” track and feature speakers from Japan, China and Malaysia. Where a single presenter/topic is proposed, the Academic Conference Committee will, as in previous years, endeavour to combine three single presentations into one composite session with a common theme. Submitting a Proposal Submissions should be made on-line through the QS-APPLE conference website:http://www.qsapple.org/proposalSS1.php. If you would like feedback on the suitability of a proposed topic before making your submission, please contact the secretary of the Academic Conference Committee by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is 19 March 2010. The Academic Conference Committee will be determining the provisional conference schedule in early April 2010 and proposers will be advised whether their session has been accepted (with/without revisions) by 30 April 2010. Speaker delegates qualify for a specially reduced conference registration fee and inclusion in the final programme is contingent upon speakers registering by a certain date. The QS-APPLE Conferences provide a friendly, supportive environment in which those interested in the internationalisation in Asia-Pacific higher education can network and learn. I hope you will choose to join us in Bangkok in 2010. On behalf of the Academic Conference Committee, I look forward to receiving your proposals.
