The Asia-Pacific Association for International Education annual conference provides a program of workshops and sessions to ensure delegates are at the forefront of international education practices and trends of the Asia-Pacific region.

In 2023, APAIE’s program of concurrent sessions will focus on the theme: Towards a sustainable future for international education in the Asia Pacific.

To be part of the APAIE 2023 program, your proposal will have a clear connection to the Conference Theme, and where applicable, your nominated stream. It will meet the selection criteria listed below.

NOTE: An individual may be part of up to 3 proposals in total, regardless of type.

Selection Criteria

As more proposals are submitted than can be accommodated, the reviewers consider the following criteria when making their assessment.

  1. Relevance to the Asia-Pacific region
  2. Overall quality of proposal
  3. Connection and relevance to the conference theme and nominated stream (where applicable)
  4. Clarity of objectives
  5. Sound academic content and basis
  6. Proposed content is not a promotion of your products, services nor organization. (You may use your organization as an example or case study to support the aim of your presentation but it must be balanced with other examples or case studies.)
  7. Interest to an APAIE audience: How topical, innovative, and new is the perspective presented?
