Asian Borderlands Research Network


Asian Borderlands conference
We are aware of the current outbreak and developments regarding the Coronavirus. At this time we are not anticipating disruptions to the Asian Borderlands conference in Seoul and there are currently then also no plans to cancel or postpone the conference. The conference preparations are in full swing.

We will monitor the situation and update participants should the situation change and affect the conference. More information is expected to become available in the coming weeks, which will equip us better to provide advice regarding travelling to Seoul in June, and if there are any precautions that participants should follow. 

Taking the developments into consideration, it has been decided to extend the early bird deadline to 1 April. 

Our thoughts go out out to the people who are at the center of the epidemic and those affected by the virus. 

If you have any questions, please contact Ms Martina van den Haak at
