My friends and fellow researchers Takeshi and Pierre are organizing a conference on Asian Philosophical Texts in Brussels in October next year. They have just sent out the call for papers, so I paste it below. You can also find the details on the conference’s PhilEvents page.
October 25–27 2018, Brussels
This conference aims at providing a platform for scholars in the field of Asian Studies and world philosophies to both discuss and perform the task of translating Asian philosophical texts into western languages. Any papers on the philosophy of translation, critical analyses of existing translations, or ongoing translation projects are welcome.

The abstract should be 300-500 words and the papers must be suitable for a 25–30 minute presentation (no more than 3500 words). If the presentations is on past or present translation projects, please make sure to send us the pdf of the original (which will be distributed to other presenters before the conference).
