General Overview of 6th AASIC

The 6th AASIC will be in a two-day full conference and one additional (optional) Chiang Rai City Tour program (Chiang Rai to Remember), started from 8 to 10 November 2018. The program will cover the main theme of the event, “A Transformative Community: Asia in Dynamism, Innovation, and Globalization”.

In the first day of the conference, the M-Square auditorium will become the home for our keynote speaker from La Trobe University, Australia, that will elaborate the main theme of the conference, “A Transformative Community: Asia in Dynamism, Innovation, and Globalization”.

The round table session will be held after the coffee break, and the participants can have more insight on four main aspects: Social Science, Engineering, Medicine, and Tourism Management and Hospitality. The first round  of parallel session of academic oral presentation will be held after lunch. At the end of the first day, a campus tour will be given by MFU Young Ambassador 2018 to the participants to explore the beauty of Mae Fah Luang University campus. To warmly greet all participants, a welcome dinner with Thai traditional Lanna (a name to mention an ancient Kingdom in the North Thailand) atmosphere will be conducted to facilitate the participants for network expansion and cultural exchange. This welcome dinner is part of the show performance of “Indonesian Night” special night, in collaboration with all Thai students who have learnt Indonesian language and culture at Mae Fah Luang University.

In the second day of the conference, the academic oral presentation will be started in M-Square classrooms. There will be 3 rounds of oral presentations and the event will be continued with a special workshop of Academic Writing and Publication to all participants in the auditorium. A closing ceremony with announcement of 10 winners for the Best Paper (5 people) and the Best Presenter (5 people) will be the last event that closes the whole event of the 6th AASIC. After the event, a special opportunity will be offered to the participants to have an Evening Walk to Chiang Rai Town, to enjoy the Chiang Rai Clock Tower, Night Bazaar, and the famous Walking Street.

In the third day, the participants may choose to have a Chiang Rai City Tour program (Chiang Rai to Remember) that they have bought in the first and the second day.
