New Normal: Unity without Boundaries

International Student Conference (ISC) is an organization established in 1954, where international exchanges and discussions take place. Students from around the world are invited to Japan each year for two weeks, where they discuss solutions to world issues. On the last day, participants will discuss their final solutions during the Final Forum.

To participate in ISC, participants must be a student: undergraduate, graduate, or PhD candidate. As the future global leaders, we aim for participants to deepen their understanding of global society by discussing issues with one another and broadening their knowledge through research and interacting with students with different backgrounds.
