“The conference served as a venue for scholars and community members to gather and discuss various aspects of Lao Studies. I felt like coming to a family reunion every three years, and seeing different aspects of Lao studies progressing in a positive way. The International Conference on Lao Studies is the only conference that focus exclusively on Lao Studies and I am glad to see how it has grown throughout the years.” -Vinya Sysamouth, Executive Director of Center for Lao Studies
