The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners is proud to announce the Inaugural Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy, to be held from March 20-22 2011, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religion to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.

By bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACERP 2011 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.

As with IAFOR's other events, and in line with its "Education Without Borders" initiative, academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe, the US, and beyond, facilitating partnerships across borders.
