Annette Schmiedchen, who is among the conveners of the section “History, Art and Architecture, Epigraphy” of the next World Sanskrit Conference, to be hosted in Canberra in January 2021, encourage DHARMA team-members to send abstracts for this or any other section or special panel.
Here is the message sent on discussion lists by McComas Taylor, convener of the conference:
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is less than two weeks away: Tuesday 31 March 2020. If you have not yet submitted your abstract for either our regular sections or special panels, we actively encourage you to do so as soon as possible.
While our conference is still ten months away, we recognise a number of conferences have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 situation and some organisations have restricted travel. We will continue to monitor the situation and observe any directives from medical authorities or national governments, but at this stage, we fully intend that the WSC will go ahead as planned, 18-22 January 2021.
We have, however, modified our cancellation policy so that anyone forced to cancel due to illness or imposition of a travel ban will be fully refunded.
