Description

The 9th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities will be held from January 9 (Sunday) to January 12 (Wednesday), 2011 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village® Beach Resort & Spa in Honolulu, Hawaii. Honolulu is located on the island of Oahu. Oahu is often nicknamed "the gathering place". The 2011 Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities will once again be the gathering place for academicians and professionals from arts and humanities related fields from all over the world.
The main goal of the 2011 Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities is to provide an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various arts and humanities related fields from all over the world to come together and learn from each other. An additional goal of the conference is to provide a place for academicians and professionals with cross-disciplinary interests related to arts and humanities to meet and interact with members inside and outside their own particular disciplines.
We will have very limited venue space available this year for performing artists (live dance, theater, and music, etc) as we've had in previous years.
The 2010 conference was a great success! It was attended by more than 700 participants representing more than 35 countries!
