The center aims to coordinate with related academic associations in China and Korea to form a community of researchers in East Asia, and as a part of such, efforts were made in hosting the 1st Slavic-Eurasian Research – East Asia Conference (Hokkaido University) in 2009. Since then, the East Asia Conference has been hosted in Seoul in 2010, Beijing in 2011, Kolkata in 2012, Osaka in 2013, and again in Seoul in 2014. As a result of the evaluation of such research network of East Asia, the International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES) World Congress in 2015 was held in a non-western country, in Japan (Makuhari, Chiba), for the first time in its history. The center provided extensive support in attracting this meeting and during the initial preparation stage.
