Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Uzbekistan and the hosts have been invited to contest the event in Bangkok from Nov.
8-11, organisers told Reuters today.
The competition will feature men's and women's singles events and mixed doubles, to be played in a round-robin format with two groups of three countries.
The group winners will meet in the final, with the eventual champions guaranteed a place in Perth next January.
Hosts India won the inaugural Asian Hopman Cup in Hyderabad last year.
