The Centre for China Studies is calling scholars and students of La Trobe University to participate in Beijing Forum 2011. Under the auspices of the Beijing Municipal Government, Beijing Forum is an international forum co-sponsored by Peking University, Beijing Municipal Commission of Education and the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies. The theme of the Forum in 2011 is "The Harmony of Civilizations and Prosperity for ALL - Tradition and Modernity, Transition and Transformation".

It is a valuable opportunity for scholars to build up network and develop collaborative relations with their peers from leading universities around the world. The Forum also has a student panel session for high caliber postgraduate and undergraduate students from all prestigious universities to present papers and express opinions.
