The International Conference on Philippine Studies (ICOPHIL) is a conference held every four years in many countries. The conference gathers researchers and scholars specializing on Philippine studies across different disciplines. Participating scholars and researchers present their research findings and papers in order to generate knowledge and share research findings. By being able to do so, participants allow exchange of ideas and knowledge and also encourage directions for future research and studies.

The conference will begin Sunday afternoon, 28 October and end after the conference banquet on Tuesday evening, 30 October.

The post-conference on 31 October will enable participants to consult Michigan State University researchers on possible collaborations or other future work, or to visit the University of Michigan where considerable Philippine historical, anthropological, and manuscript collections are located.

The conference takes place on the 5,200-acre campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. Sessions will take place at the International Center located at the heart of the campus and nearby buildings. Click here for the interactive campus map.
