ASQUA

ASQUA (Asian Conference on Quaternary Research) was proposed to organize in 2007 during the International Symposium on the 50th anniversary of the Japan Association for Quaternary Research, the aim of which was the progress of study on the Quaternary Research of Asia.

The First Asian Conference on Quaternary Research (ASQUA) was held in Beijing, October 19 - 23, 2009 together with the International Symposium on Paleoanthropology in Commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of the Discovery of the First Skull of Peking Man. Over 230 participants from over 20 countries attended the conference.

The first ASQUA business meeting was convened during the conference by Professor Jule XIAO, Secretary-General of CHIQUA, and Professor Xing GAO, co-convener of the conference with the participation of Liping ZHOU, Zhaoyu ZHU and Changzhu JIN from CHIQUA Secretariat, Min Te CHEN from Chinese Taipei, Hisao KUMAI and Yoshiki SAITO from Japan, Yong Ahn PARK, Boo Keun KHIM and Sang Hyun YI from Korea, and Margarita ERBAJEVA from Russia.

It was decided that next ASQUA meeting will be held in 2013, and Russia was suggested to be the host country.

The 2nd ASQUA Meeting titled "Advances in the Quaternary of Interior Asia" will be held in Ulan-Ude, the Baikalian region, Russia in September 9-16, 2013 by Geological Institute of the Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences and ASQUA.

Quaternary research through the ASQUA should serve as an important platform for scientific communication and cooperation among the Quaternary scientists from Asia. It was decided that the ASQUA meeting would be held in Asian countries every four years during the inter-Congress period of INQUA.
