Call For Papers
Indonesia Focus Conference 2011
May 28-29, 2011, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
“Embracing Globalization through Promoting Entrepreneurship and
US-Indonesia Business Relation”
Abstract submission deadline: February 28, 2011
Background and Theme
The Asian Society for International Relations and Public Affairs
(ASIRPA) invites the submission of papers for the 2011 Indonesia Focus
Conference, which will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, May 28-29,
2011. The conference accepts three types of papers: academic papers,
business plans/ideas, and writing-contest papers. Faculty members,
researchers, business people, or anyone interested in this conference
are all invited.
The theme of this year’s conference is Embracing Globalization through
Promoting Entrepreneurship and US-Indonesia Business Relations. With
this theme, the conference seeks to emphasize that globalization is
real; we not only have to accept it but also embrace it. Ignoring
globalization will only leave us further behind. Hence, we will take
part and try to fare well in it by utilizing all of our resources. These
include not only our rich natural endowments but also our strategic
geographical location, abundant young and bright minds, loyal and
cohesive social capital, hardworking entrepreneurs, as well as
opportunities to bring in more unconditional support from the
government. While globalization brings more competition, it provides
broad opportunities at the same time.
The conference provides a forum where broad ideas of how to help
Indonesia fare well in the globalized economy are exchanged and
discussed. It is expected that the meeting would inspire attendees with
regard to the potential roles they may want to play in this globalized
world. The conference also provides a forum for entrepreneurs to
showcase their business ideas, plans, and products to Indonesian and
international audience. We hope that the meeting would motivate, and
even initiate further business cooperation among Indonesians, Americans,
and international participants.
Topics and Submission Deadlines
Academic Presentation and Business Plan/Idea Presentation
For the academic presentation, the conference accepts a broad spectrum
of topics, including:

* The audacity of hope toward Indonesian development
* Developing Indonesia and U.S. cooperation.
At the end of the conference, three best papers will be selected. If you
are interested in presenting, but your topic is not included in the
above list, please contact the conference organizers below; we will
attempt to accommodate all interests.
For the business plan/ideas presentation, the conference accepts any
types of proposed business plan, provided that the business is legal.

plan is February 28, 2011. The complete draft must be submitted by May
14, 2011. Please submit the abstract or complete draft of the paper or
business plan to the conference organizers at [email protected]
