Scholars with interest in Chinese philosophy and philosophy in China are invited to submit proposals for individual papers or panels to Ralph Weber ( [at]

Abstracts should be no more than 200 words. Panel proposals should include the title and a brief description of the panel, as well as the names, affiliations, and email addresses of the participants. Please also provide the titles of each participant’s presentation. The deadline for submission is March 31, 2017. Notice of acceptance of proposals will be sent to your e-mail address by the end of April, with instructions for how to register and submit the conference registration fee (EACP members: 60 EUR for scholars and 20 EUR for students, non-members: 80 EUR for scholars and 30 EUR for students).

To encourage participation and inclusion of young researchers, there will be a Young Scholars Award.

Winners of the award will be receiving a full travel grant and prize money.
