Recognizing the significant need for original research and development initiatives in Cambodia and to promote research culture among university students both in Cambodia and in the region, Zaman University has been organizing and hosting Annual Student Conferences since 2014. The panels generated rigorous discussion on various subjects and attracted attention from the media and academia. This year, the 3rd Annual Student Conference will continue serving the purpose of proving a platform for students to share their knowledge and research activities by presenting them to the public.
Distinguished intellectuals and professionals will be serving as chairs and discussants of the panels and will provide feedback on the research papers presented.
The theme of this year's conference focuses on opportunities for the youth and their engagement in tackling global issues. Our world is changing and while every day brings in new opportunities, multiple challenges emerge as well. National and global social movements are changing the landscape of politics and international relations. While the social media is connecting the world, traditional loyalties are shifting and are being remade.
connectivity is bringing about new waves of thought and novel ways of action. Start-ups and social entrepreneurship are reshaping the global economic activities and creating multiple benefits all the while challenging the existing structures. Young people are both at the center of these changes and are the biggest group to be affected by them. This conference aims to provide them with an arena where they can voice their concerns and share the solutions they come up with through their research.
By participating in the conference, students will:
- get valuable feedback on the progress of their research
- have a unique chance to expand their professional network
- receive a Certificate of Participation
- have an opportunity to get their paper published in conference proceedings
- be immersed in the rich social and cultural atmosphere of Cambodia (for international participants)
