After each ICCEES World Congress, an important piece of follow-up work is the editing and publication of thematic volumes of collected papers. At Makuhari on 6 August 2015, at a preliminary meeting a number of themes were proposed and since then others have been added:
Raymond Taras (Tulane University) East Asian Perceptions, Images and Constructions of Russia in light of the Ukrainian Crisis Seongjin Kim (Duksung Women's University, South Korea) Migration Issues, Gender Migration R.J. Marsh (University of Bath) 20th-21st century Literature, Women and Gender Suchandana Chatterjee (M.A.K.Azad Institute of Asian Studies, India) Memory and History Writing in Eurasia and Central and Eastern Europe Ildiko Asztalos Morell (Uppsala University), Yulia Gradskova (Stockholm University) Gender Issues in post/socialist contexts (Hungary, Serbia, Russia) David Wells (Curtin University, Australia) open literary theme, possible collaboration Georges Mink (CNRS-ISP, College of Europe, France) The Memory of Communism special issue of Nationalities Papers.
Further proposals are welcome. Anyone wishing to formulate a proposal may review the program panels, paper titles and abstracts, which will remain accessible on the Congress website (http://www.l.u-tokyo.ac.jp/makuhari2015/program.html) until at least the end of October. All Congress volumes should mention that the
papers are from the ICCEES IX World Congress (Makuhari, 2015), and editors are asked to advise ICCEES once the volumes/special issues are published.

ICCEES IX World Congress, Makuhari, Japan, 3-8 August 2015
Under the slogan “Makuhari – Where Many Wests Meet Many Easts”, the IX World Congress was held in very hot and humid weather. The Congress was a resounding success. There were 1310 delegates from 50 different countries attending 378 panels and roundtables. In terms of national representation, large numbers of delegates came from the immediate geographical region, and the Russian contingent, although reduced at the last minute by funding difficulties, was also substantial. The quality of papers and sessions was generally very high, with the lead being set by the opening session at which former prime ministers of Russia (Sergei Stepashin) and Japan (Yasuo Fukuda) and a former foreign minister of South Korea (Han Sung-Joo) shared candid really interesting thoughts on recent developments. Publication of a series of volumes of papers from the Congress is being organized by Professor Andrii Krawchuk.
This Congress was an exceptionally important one in ICCEES’ history: it was the first held outside Europe or North America, and it symbolizes the drive over the last five years to expand the organization’s scope throughout Asia. Sincere thanks is owed to our Japanese colleagues for organizing such a successful occasion, and we look forward to the next Congress to be held in Canada in 2020.
