The aim of ACE 2010 is to encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. This international conference will bring together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas. ACE 2010 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education. Academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe and the US, facilitating partnerships across borders.
The Asian Conference on Education 2010 is pleased to be affiliated with the University of London through Birkbeck's Insititute for Lifelong Learning and Waseda University through the Distance Learning Centre.

Special Theme: Internationalization or Globalization?

Education systems across the world are becoming increasingly socially, ethnically and culturally diverse, both as a consequence of globalization and in response to internationalization. The conference theme, "Globalization or internationalization?", has a particular focus on adult, distance and access education, and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this question from a variety of perspectives.
