The deadline for paper submission and round-table proposals, workshops and student sessions is October 1 2017. Papers and proposals accepted after this deadline may be accepted if there is space still available, but no later than February 1 2018.

The 5th International STCS Conference will be held in Ljubljana between April 20-22, 2018. The main goal of the STCS (Specific Topics in Chinese Studies) conferences (organized by the Department of Asian Studies at the University of Ljubljana) is to use knowledge and flow of information through various disciplines to encourage and advance the study of specific topics related to China. We also hope to create and maintain a multidisciplinary platform for a fruitful exchange of ideas on different types, images, and categories of Chinese cultures. The 2018 conference is dedicated to the sinization of Marxism as a paradigm for research on Marxist philosophy in contemporary China.

In order to facilitate a fruitful academic dialogue between scholars and students working in these research topics, we particularly (but not exclusively) welcome papers focusing on the following aspects:
