COVID-19 Update

Thank you for your interest and support of the 18th World Sanskrit Conference (WSC 2023) originally scheduled for 18-22 January 2021. Due to the continued COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty regarding international travel to Australia the conference was postponed and will now be held online. The new scheduled dates are 9-13 January 2022.

In the spirit of the conference theme Future Directions and spurred by our shared desire to encourage and support emerging scholars in whose hands the future lies, we will be awarding a prize for the most outstanding presentation by a currently enrolled Masters or PhD student. We will be inviting section convenors to nominate suitable candidates.
