Announcement and Call for Papers
Conference to be held from 26 to 28 June 2013
Since early 2011 the University of Vienna has been hosting an online edition project of Tocharian manuscripts funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund. Research on Tocharian is interdisciplinary and international per se, and much depends on cooperation with neighboring disciplines such as Buddhist studies and other philologies of Central Asian languages. The conference is therefore dedicated to the study of Tocharian texts and Tocharian culture in all its aspects, and open to transdisciplinary approaches.
Accordingly, papers about any aspect of Tocharian, contact languages and Silk Road culture will be featured at this conference.
Slots will comprise 20 minutes for papers plus 10 minutes for discussions.
Registration for the conference is open until June 26, 2013.
There will be a conference fee of 50 Euros for faculty and 25 Euros for students and non-faculty; apart from snacks during breaks, this fee will also include a party on Thursday evening and a reception by the Mayor of Vienna on Friday evening. If you want to attend the official conference dinner on Wednesday evening, an additional fee of approx. 40 Euros will be charged. Please tell us upon registration, whether you want to attend the conference dinner. (As of May 1 registration for the conference dinner, the reception and the outing to the Wachau, unfortunately, are not possible anymore.)
Please note that we cannot cover accommodation and traveling costs for non-invited speakers.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Vienna.
