Regional Conference

One of the core functions of the Central Eurasian Studies Society is to organize conferences that bring together the Central Eurasian scholarly community. CESS has held a conference hosted across Central Eurasia every two to three years since 2008 with the aim of building truly global academic networks and serving CESS’ regional members.

Our Regional Conference has grown with each occurrence: the most recent regional conference, held jointly with the European Society for Central Asian Studies (ESCAS), at the American University of Central Asia (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) in 2017, was our largest yet.

The next CESS Regional Conference will be at the University of World Economy and Diplomacy, Tashkent, Uzbekistan in June 2020. The exact dates will be published once confirmed.

Read about CESS’ past Regional Conferences, including the 2017 CESS Regional Conference in Bishkek.

CESS welcome interest from prospective Regional Conference host institutions in the wider Central Asian region (from the Caucasus to Mongolia). If you are an interested institution, reach out to us.
