I am pleased to announce that the well-established tradition of
International Dharmakīrti Conferences – Kyōto (1982), Vienna (1989),
Hiroshima (1997) and, again, Vienna (2005) – will be continued with the
Fifth International Dharmakīrti Conference in Heidelberg from 25-29
The conference is aimed to showcase current research on all aspects of
Buddhist epistemology and logic in India, China or Tibet from a
historical, philological and/or philosophical perspective. Papers may
also address aspects of the relationship of Buddhist pramāṇa to other
currents of thought within Buddhism or in the respectively pertinent
broader intellectual environment.
The conference is scheduled for the week immediately after the IABS
conference in Vienna (August 18-23), to facilitate participation in both
conferences for scholars from overseas.

system for the conference will be made available by 31 July 2013.
