This year's three-day conference has a total of 18 panels, with topics on all aspects of Lao Studies. In addition to panel speakers, we are honored to have an art exhibition, entitled "Between Two Worlds: Through the Eyes of the Lao Artist" by Tiao Nithakhong Somsanith, an artist from the Lao royal court, who will be showcasing his work on stencilling and gold thread embroidery along with a Lao America artist, Chantala Kommanivanh, who will be showcasing a more contemporary piece. In addition, our keynote speakers come from Laos, Mr. Anasay Keodara, a filmmaker, and Ms. Khamly Philvong, an actress from "Sabaidee Luanphrabang," who will be discussing issues of filmmaking in Laos along with Dr. Steve Arounsack, a Lao American professor of Anthropology.
