The Next Conference

It was a great pleasure to see the idea of this conference – EACEF becoming reality due to hard work of many parties, especially also support from DAAD.

The presence of our distinguished guest Dr. Norbert Baas, the German Ambassador and giving keynote speech in the conference are signs for us, that our EACEF is expected to have significant contribution in facing global issues, opens a window of opportunity to strengthen ties between the Europe and the Asia region at a key time of fast global change.

In his speech Dr. Buchholt gave his appreciation to Prof. Harianto Hardjasaputra and the organizing committee for taking the initiative and preparing this forum. We all know that it is a hard work to plan and conduct such an international conference, to raise the funds, plan the program, to invite speakers and participants and so on. He is convinced that all efforts will be rewarded by a lively, fruitful seminar and discussion.

The response by so many authors from 20 countries was surely a confirmation for the need of this conference. To respond of this needy, the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee had committed to conduct the next conference, the 4th conference of EACEF to be held in:

Singapore, hosted by National University of Singapore (NUS) *

In July 2013

In his speech, Prof. Chan Weng Tat (NUS), the chairman of the organizing committee of the 4th EACEF 2013, said, that it is a great honor to be the host of the next conference. On behalf of his university NUS, he is humble to accept it.
