Meeting Description:

International Conference on Tocharian Manuscripts and Silk Road Culture

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.

Call for Papers:

Papers about any aspect of Tocharian, contact languages and Silk Road culture are welcome.

Slots will comprise 20 minutes for papers plus 10 minutes for discussions.

Please send us your abstracts (no more than 800 words excluding references) including your name and affiliation by 30 November 2012.

For more information on abstract submission, please view our website:


Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline: 30 November 2012
Notification of acceptance: 14 January 2013
Registration open: 1 October 2012 until 26 June 2013
