This conference, which has taken place mostly every three years in Asia, Europe, or the Americas, is the largest international forum for the presentation of current academic scholarship on Buddhism. This is the first time a Congress of the IABS will take place in Canada.
This site will keep you informed about the conference, its location, its hosting institutions, and its organizers. Most importantly, it will remind you of the deadlines and will facilitate submissions and registration as the date of the event approaches. As the preparations for the event proceed, these pages will be continuously expanded, eventually featuring panel and section proposals, include suggestions for travel arrangements and accommodation, and, eventually, the final program with the conference schedule, paper announcements, project presentations, sponsors, and tour options.
The IABS 2017 Team invites you to explore the pages of this site, to return to it for updates, and to eventually join us all in Toronto in the summer of 2017 for the XVIIIth Congress of the International Association of Buddhist Studies!
