                      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.

Wednesday – Friday, 17 – 19 November 2010
Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre, Bangkok, Thailand

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

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

Submitting a Proposal

Submissions should be made on-line through the QS-APPLE conference

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: irene.fussell@canterbury.ac.nz.

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.
