A new concept for many people in Hong Kong, the IAS programs promote the creation and development of IAS clusters of research activities and new initiatives at HKUST. Comprising short courses, workshops, and in some cases postdoc-led/postgraduate student-led discussion sessions, fully-fledged programs mostly take place during term break. Smaller-scale focused programs on particular topics are also organized during the term. Typically, an IAS program may last for at least one month.

Smaller-scale focused programs on particular topics are also organized during the term. Typically, an IAS focused program lasts for five days, from Monday to Friday.

The IAS values your ideas on people and activities. Please contact our Director Prof. Andrew Cohen (acohen@ust.hk) to discuss.
