World Sanskrit Conference

The main task of the IASS is to organise a World Sanskrit Conference (WSC), usually every three years, at different venues around the world and the New Delhi conference in 1972 has been recognised as the first WSC of the IASS. Over the years the WSCs have been successful in creating cooperation in a number of common causes, both in defence of the discipline and in encouraging important fields of research, while numbers of participants has increased steadily (with particularly large attendances at the conferences held in India: Varanasi in 1981, Bangalore in 1997 and New Delhi in 2012). The WSC in New Delhi in 2012 was the 15th.
