Call for Proposals

As a unique academic platform where great minds converge, IAS offers unparalleled opportunities for HKUST faculty members to bring in renowned scholars from around the world for various forms of academic activities:

  • IAS Distinguished Lectures for distinguished scholars to give a lecture of general interests.
  • IAS Joint School Lectures / Seminars for outstanding scholars to give a talk of a specific topic.
  • IAS Programs comprising short courses, workshops, and in some cases postdoc-led / postgraduate student-led discussion sessions. Fully-fledged programs mostly take place during term break, while smaller-scale focused programs on particular topics are also organized during the term.
  • IAS Visitors Programs (IAS Visiting Professors, IAS Senior Visiting Fellows and IAS Visiting Fellows) for prestigious scholars to make regular visits to IAS on collaborative projects with HKUST faculty members.
  • Sponsorship of Plenary / Invited Speakers of Activities for faculty members to help IAS build clusters of research activities and new initiatives at HKUST in the form of standalone conferences, workshops, seminars, symposiums, etc.
