(Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and the
historic regions of Khorasan and northern Afghanistan), Manchuria, South Siberia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, Hungary, Estonia, Finland, and other regions which include Uralic peoples.
Organized by the IU Association of Central Eurasian Students, the conference will be held in Bloomington on March 31, 2001.

The work of Inner Mongolian-born artist Chaolun Baatar will be exhibited at the IU Indiana Memorial Union Gallery during March, with a reception the afternoon of March 30, 2001. Later that evening is an opening reception for the Mongolia Society conference and for Gary Tepfer's exhibition of photographs of Mongolia in the IU School of Fine Arts gallery. A Mongolian film festival is planned. The Central Eurasian Studies Conference has organized book displays by the IU Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies
