The key achievements were 1) bringing together scholars from eastern/western and northern/southern countries to promote sharing, understanding, and collaboration and 2) affording capacity building opportunities in conducting and reporting research for younger scholars, particularly those from lower and middle-income countries. As noted in the summary questionnaire data, there was generally a good level of satisfaction with the conference. Quite a few scholars, especially younger Asian scholars, approached the organizers to express their appreciation for having such a conference in the region. Lessons also were learned about how to organize a conference of this scope and these are being shared with future hosts to ensure the continual development of the conference. Overall, the grant was straightforward to manage and made a significant contribution to the success of the conference.
