ISA GSCIS Singapore 2015: Program Pending

We (the Conference Team) know that you are very anxious to have your acceptance letters for the GSCIS conference Singapore in order to be able to make your plans in a timely fashion. As you can see from the ISA website, the deadline for our drawing up the program has passed by a weekend (the deadline was September 5). In part, the delay is due to the wonderful response we received to our call for proposals (thank you all!) and in second part, to the fact that we extended the deadline for receipt of proposals by a week. Just to update you then: We have been working very hard and are almost ready to upload the preliminary program; at this time we are allocating slots to accepted panels. We expect that the process will be completed by Wednesday 10th, at which time ISA HQ will send out acceptances, with a link to the panels and other information (registration, travel and grants etc.). We thank you very much for your patience and look forward to seeing you in Singapore. 



WISC Call for Workshop Participants

The World International Studies Committee (WISC) invites applications for a one-day workshop on "The Future of Global IR: Enhancing Cooperation and Building New Networks" to be held at the GSCIS Singapore Conference in January 2015. Applications (CV and a brief letter of intent) should be addressed to by 30 September 2014.



GSCIS Singapore 2015 - Deadline Extension

Given the overwhelming interest and response to the ISA-Global South Caucus 2015 meeting, we've decided to leave the submission system open through the weekend to ensure that everyone has had a chance to submit any last minute proposals. We've received a record-breaking number of proposals this year and I very much look forward to crafting an exciting program for Singapore. The system will still allow submissions through Monday, July 21st, so be sure you get any final proposals in.



Update on ISA Global South Conference

Many of you have been somewhat anxiously awaiting our decision as to a change of venue for the GSCIS conference scheduled to be held in Bangkok in January 2015. As everyone is aware, the military has taken control of Thailand and the space for free and open discussion, including academic interchange, has been narrowed considerably. We are now able to announce that the venue has been changed to nearby Singapore. Our new host will be the Singapore Management University which has graciously not only stepped into the breach but also has contributed added funds to host this important conference. We are delighted to be able to transfer the site to such a central and culturally significant country which has been the source of so many ideas for study and emulation politically, economically, and diplomatically, in the global south.



GSCIS Bangkok 2015 - Conference Site Update

The ISA, the ISA President, and the GSCIS have for some time been monitoring the political situation in Thailand and, as a precaution, have been exploring alternative sites in case the conference needs to be moved. In view of the current military crackdown, which now includes the detention of politicians, scholars, and writers, we are urgently reviewing these alternative sites, and will be informing the membership of any venue changes in due course, certainly well before the registration deadlines. Meanwhile, we wish to assure the ISA membership that the conference — focused as it is on the some of the most important issues and ideas about an inclusive IR — will be held as planned in January. We are convinced that this will be a seminal and very productive event for the GSCIS and the ISA, and we look forward to the traditional fruitful and free exchange of academic ideas at GSCIS 2015.
