We are pleased to announce that the well-established tradition of
International Dharmakīrti Conferences – Kyoto (1982), Vienna (1989),
Hiroshima (1997), Vienna (2005), Heidelberg (2014) – will continue
with the 6th International Dharmakīrti Conference in Busan (South
Korea) – to be held from 24-28 August 2020.

The Conference aims to showcase current research on all aspects of
Buddhist epistemology and logic in India, East Asia and Tibet from a
historical, philological and/or philosophical perspective. Papers may
also address aspects of the relationship between Buddhist pramāṇa and
other currents of thought within Buddhism. We also welcome pertinent
contributions from the broader intellectual environment. 

To facilitate participation in both conferences for scholars from
overseas, the conference in Busan is scheduled for the week
immediately after the International Association of Buddhist
Studies (IABS) conference in Seoul (16-21 August 2020). The city of
Busan can be easily be reached by air or ship. For those attending
the IABS conference, a limousine bus for Busan will be waiting at
Seoul National University, the site where this conference will be
held. In addition, we shall take care to keep registration and
accommodation costs as low as possible. Details will be announced in
the second circular. 

Further communication will take place by e-mail unless individuals
