The conference is a platform for scientists and Buddhists to present their researches and to complete each other by revealing different aspects and materials on Buddhism; and to consider future directions of Buddhism so that Buddhist education continues to be responsive to the needs of learners in changing times across diverse contexts.

* An online Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia
* Western Buddhism
* Buddhism in Australia

The conference is open to proposals for contributions on Buddhist history, philosophy, texts as well for proposals on any related theme.

Researchers across a broad range of disciplines are welcomed

The conference program includes also a case study "Lets have a look at WA Buddhist life II" which introduces WA Buddhist communities and temples. For more, please see here: www.buddhismandaustralia.com
