The East Timor Studies Graduate Summer School (ETSGSS) and conference is a week of workshops and research activities designed to bring together young scholars who are working on East Timor. The Summer School is held at the campus of The Australian National University in Canberra, and is open to participants from within and outside Australia. The program is still provisional at this stage. If you wish to take part you should let the program convenor know as soon as possible. 
 The program will showcase the work of young East Timor scholars in a formal setting and will include seminars, roundtable discussions, guest lectures as well as library visits and cultural events. The program also aims to provide students with an opportunity to use the rich resources held at the ANU library and the National Library of Australia. The East Timor Studies Graduate Summer School is open to postgraduate students currently enrolled in any tertiary institution inside or outside Australia who have not already attended a previous Asia Pacific Week. Recently completed post-doctoral students and Honours students may also be considered. 
 Several provisional themes for guest lectures have been proposed, and participants will be expected to make presentations on their own research interests. Provisional discussion topics for guest lectures are: 
   - agricultural development 
 - justice / legal system 
 - language 
 - oil and gas reserves 
 - education 
 - economy 
 - cultural heritage 

Roundtable discussions on the following topics may be held:
  - Future directions for East        Timor research 
 - Challenges for fieldwork in East        Timor
