the Faculty of Social Sciences and Department of Politics and Public Administration,
Hong Kong University
Marijke Breuning & John Ishiyama, Program Co-Chairs
Proposal deadline: 1 October 2016

The proposal deadline is fast approaching! All paper, panel, roundtable and innovative proposals on any subject related to international studies, broadly defined, are invited. Particularly welcome are submissions to the theme. We're delighted to have travel grants available for ISA members - applications will open September 23rd. We're looking forward to our next joint international meeting in beautiful Hong Kong and hope to see you there!

Innovative Panels!

In addition to the traditional paper, panel and roundtable proposals, we are soliciting proposals for an additional non-traditional panel format - Innovative Panels. Innovative panels offer an opportunity for a little creativity and experimentation - to push beyond the traditional panel format. In these panels, participants’ dialogue, network and learn in a unique format that differs from our traditional panel session. You can find out more about all our submission types on our website.


As part of a new initiative, ISA Headquarters began a new partnership with local university students in the summer of 2015. This housed within the Digital Media and Design department at UCONN, and provides students with experiential learning and real-world challenges, while offering ISA innovative options for the digital age.

At the 2016 ISA Annual Convention in Atlanta, this team participated in several audio and video recording projects onsite. In addition to these products, the team put together a brief glimpse of their experience Behind the Scenes of ISA.


The Program Chair and Section Program Chairs have been working hard all summer to craft a stimulating program for our 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore next February. The preliminary program launches next Friday, September 16th.

In advance of the release, we're delighted to release a short video, filmed onsite at ISA 2016. See why ISA members and participants are excited about the ISA Annual Convention, and what they're looking forward to in February.
