CAPI Student Symposium on the Asia-Pacific 2011
Victoria, British Columbia
Graduate and senior undergraduate students, whose work focuses on the Asia-Pacific region, presented their research, work-in-progress, and papers at the CAPI Student Symposium on the Asia-Pacific on March 11, 2011.
The symposium was a great opportunity to network with students doing work in the Asia-Pacific region, listen to interesting presentations, and enjoy some complimentary food. Over lunch we hosted participants at a CAPI Open House - where people came to chat with CAPI staff, see where CAPI is located, and learned more about what CAPI has to offer. Thanks to everyone for your participation!
