Spreading wisdom and compassion in European societies,

EBU Conference; Benalmádena, Malaga, Spain - 13.-15.4.2018

After the successful 2016 EBU Event ‘Buddhism in Action’ in Berlin, we are happy to invite you to our next Conference Event in April 2018 in Malaga (Spain):
Spreading wisdom and compassion in European societies

Call for papers

The European Buddhist Union (EBU) organizes a conference event every 2 years. After the event “Buddhism in Action” In Berlin in 2016, there will be the another such event in April 2018.

The objective of the conference is to bring together Buddhists from all traditions and lineages in Europe, discuss common Buddhist goals in the context of how we can together bring Buddhist principles into European societies, serve as an inter-Buddhist platform and be a great opportunity for networking.

The theme of the conference event is “Spreading wisdom and compassion in European societies”, with their specific socio-political, cultural and economic features. Wisdom and Compassion are two of the most important pillars of Buddhist thought, and they appear to us as being very important nowadays.

There will be a variety of talks and workshops and we would like to cordially invite you and your organization to take part in the conference and propose a speaker, an expert or a workshop instructor.

We want to have ample space for group discussions and interactive meetings, hence we will limit the time for talks or speeches. Therefore it is necessary that those who would like to give a talk or lead a workshop send an abstract to the organization committee describing the topic of their contribution.

This is not an academic event, and it is not necessary to provide a written paper, if you prefer to rather speak freely. However, if you would prefer to submit a paper after being accepted, it is welcome.

The abstract should contain the specific topic you intend to talk about, an overview of the talk and a short biography of the speaker or expert.

We intend to publish papers which are provided to us as a book after the conference. There will be also the possibility for an audience to view the talks via video streaming, after the conference.
