The conference is preceded on Wednesday 9th September 2020 by a PhD workshop, where pre-selected PhD students will be invited to present their papers or projects. Faculty and senior researchers from Alliance Universities will provide feedback, as well as advice on research, publications, and careers. 

Other workshops may also be organised on the 9th September and we encourage Alliance Universities and other organisations to organise side-events on this day. 

There will be a day proceeding the conference on Friday 6th September for the Alliance Organising Committee and Alliance strategy sessions on key areas of future cooperation. There will also be a debrief on the 3rd Annual Conference and a discussion of plans for the 4th Annual Conference hosted by Central University of Finance and Economics, Beijing in 2021.
