The 17th EAEA International Convention Postponed to August 2021

Due to the pandemic (COVID-19) shock, the EAEA board has approved the postponement of the EAEA’s 17th International Convention, originally scheduled for 26-27 September 2020, to 14-15 August 2021.

We apologise for inconvenience caused by the postponement of the conference, in consideration of the health and safety of all participants at the conference.

All of our sponsors, including the ADB, ERIA, Sunway University and the Malaysian Economic Association, are in support of the change in the schedule of the EAEA17 Conference.

The website will be updated to reflect this change, and potential paper presenters who have submitted an abstract will continue to be in consideration for the EAEA17 Conference in 2021. Otherwise, they may also withdraw their abstracts/papers.

We hope you will continue to support the 17th EAEA International Convention, as organised with the Jeffrey Cheah Institute on Southeast Asia, Sunway University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Please take note of the new deadlines for the conference:


  • Abstract submission open: 1 November 2019
  • Abstract submission due: 2 May 2021
  • Session proposal deadline: 1 April 2021
  • Notification of abstract acceptance: 31 May 2021
  • Full paper submission due: 15 July 2021
  • Paper presenter registration due: 15 July 2021

Convention dates: 14-15 August 2021

The organising committee hopes to see you at the EAEA17 Conference 2021 at Sunway University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We wish everyone to take care and stay safe.
