On December 14-16, 2005, the SRC Winter International Symposium was held under the title, "Regions in Central and Eastern Europe: Past and Present." This meeting was mainly sponsored by the Japan Foundation, as well as one of a series of symposia for the 21st century Center of Excellence program "Making a Discipline of Slavic Eurasian Studies," which started in 2003. Eight foreign scholars were invited as speakers from universities or institutes of Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Greece and Russia with eight Japanese scholars.

The aim of this symposium was to encourage discussion on topics related to "regions" of Central and Eastern Europe, namely how these various regions, or spatial consciousness, were perceived or "imagined" internally or externally in the past; how these perceptions and imagination have changed especially in modern history; what meanings these regions will have after the enlargement of the EU. The proceedings of the symposium will be published soon.
