The success of the 1st National Conference on Environment-Behaviour Studies, InCEBS2009 held at UiTM Shah Alam, Malaysia, from 14-15 Nov 2009, inspired the organiser to organise future conferences beyond the nation. The AcE-Bs, an initial acronym for ASEAN Conference on Environment-Behaviour Studies, which targeted venues at ASEAN countries, was later extended to be held in Asian countries, thus the current acronym for the Asian Conference on Environment-Behaviour Studies.

AcE-Bs conferences main theme address Environment-Behaviour (E-B) issues affecting the Asian communities living in both Asian and non-Asian countries. E-B issues affecting non-Asian communities are also most welcome.

Prior to 2014, AcE-Bs was organized by cE-Bs (Centre for Environment-Behaviour Studies, FSPU, UiTM, Malaysia, supported by AMER (Association of Malaysian Environment-Behaviour Researchers) and ABRA (Association of Behavioural Researchers on Asians). Post-2014, with AMER and ABRA being formalised, cE-Bs took the supporting role. AMER’s Event Management & Services (emAs), a private entity, manages all of AMER’s events, under emAs (Emas Emas Resources).
