ICAS11 looking for volunteers

Join our Team – Become a Volunteer!

The eleventh International Convention of Asia Scholars
(ICAS 11)

Dates: 15-19 July 2019
Place: Leiden, the Netherlands

Come with us on this fantastic journey of organising the biggest international convention on Asia in the lovely city of Leiden.

From 15-19 July, the city centre of Leiden will be bustling with enthusiastic Asia scholars and visitors interested in discovering their bit of Dutch history. The Convention itself will be a networking event wherein over 2000 scholars and other experts engage with each other through panel discussions, roundtable conversations and book presentations.

‘Leiden Asia Week’
Moreover, on the occasion of ICAS 11, the city of Leiden will be enveloped in an all-embracing ‘Leiden Asia Week’. Because the Convention is much more than an isolated academic programme, it will be enriched by a variety of pre/parallel scholarly proceedings, a book exhibition, film festival, musical and gastronomic festivities, and an abundance of cultural events carried out in partnership with the city.

In order to make this conference successful, we are looking for you! Your tasks may include registering our international participants; monitoring panel rooms; guiding the stream of participants between various locations; manning the information counter; and possibly provide some muscle for the installing and dismantling of the publishers’ exhibition areas.

What will you gain from this volunteer experience?
We offer a €30 volunteer stipend per day, free coffee and tea, and lunch will also be provided for you. You will be invited to the opening reception (Hooglandse Kerk) and closing party (Stadsgehoorzaal). On top of that, participating in the organisation of such an internationally recognised event (the largest international convention on Asian Studies) will provide you with a unique experience, which you can add to your CV. All volunteers will also receive a certificate of participation.

We are looking for sociable students who have a good command of English and have experience with or have a particular interest in Asia. Do you fit this description? Then dive with us in the world of conferences!
