The Seventh Oceanic Conference on International Studies (OCIS) will be held at the University of Queensland, (St Lucia) Brisbane Australia, on 4-6 July 2016. 
We are very excited to announce that we have two incredible speakers for OCIS 2016. Professor Peter J. Katzenstein will deliver the OCIS Keynote Address and Professor Anne Orford will give the Closing OCIS Plenary Address.

Held every two years, OCIS is the premier conference in international studies held in Australasia. It brings together scholars working across all fields of international studies, and is known for its relaxed yet intellectually stimulating atmosphere. Attended by leading scholars in the field internationally, it is also a wonderful venue for junior scholars to air their evolving ideas. 

We have been overwhelmed by the interest in this year’s OCIS, and it is shaping up to be a wonderful social and intellectual event. We have attracted a tremendous mix of scholars, coming from diverse backgrounds and working across a fascinating range of topics. It is testimony to the diversity and dynamism of our community. Please note that  proposal submission has now closed.

The School of Political Science and International Studies at UQ hosted OCIS in 2008, and we are very much looking forward to hosting the international studies community once again.
