AASIC was initiated by PERMITHA (Overseas Indonesian Student Association in Thailand) with the ultimate goal to provide a channel to share experience and knowledge among students in ASEAN countries.The 1st AASIC was originally named Asean Academic Society International Conference and taken place in Prince of Songkhla University in Hat Yai whilst the 2nd AASIC was taken place in Kassertsat University.
The 3rd AASIC was then renamed into Asian Academic Society to expand its coverage. It was held in Chulalongkorn University in 2015, with the support of The Indonesian Embassy in Royal Kingdom of Thailand and Muslim Studies of Chulalongkorn University. With over a hundred participants, the conference highlighted the importance of integrated science, technology and humanities for a sustainable development.
In 2016, the 4th AASIC will be held in M ahidol University, Salaya Campus, Phutthamonthon, Nakon Pathom, Thailand. As one of the green campus in Thailand, and also its role in Global Health Initiatives, Mahidol University Salaya will serve as a perfect venue for the conference as the participants will be exposed to green living and observe the innovation of the environmental-friendly technology around Salaya Campus.
