More than 90 graduate students from 46 universities in 25 nations are set to present their research at the East-West Center’s 11th annual International Graduate Student Conference. The interdisciplinary gathering, planned and organized by EWC students, is the largest of its kind worldwide. All conference sessions, excluding meals, are free and open to the public.

The three-day conference includes 23 panel sessions in a number of areas focusing on the Asia Pacific region and its interactions with the U.S.

W. Lee Howell, head of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Global Events and Risk Response Network, will deliver the conference’s keynote address on Feb. 16 at 4:30 p.m., on the topic of “The Decade Ahead: Global Risks and Opportunities."

The primarily self-funded presenters were selected from more than 200 graduate students who submitted paper abstracts. Some 36 presenters are from outside the U.S., 33 are from Hawai'i, and the remainder are from the U.S. mainland
