The 14th World Sanskrit Conference will operate in 15 sections (with five or six sessions running concurrently), each chaired by scholars specialising in the particular field.

The conveners will organise the section and select the papers for presentation. During the conference they will preside over the meetings of the section and/or nominate additional chairs for this purpose. After the conference the conveners will act as editors of the proceedings to be published as a series. The conveners operate in close consultation with the conference organisers; since the organisers are responsible for practical arrangements, please send all correspondence about such matters (registration, abstracts, cancellations, etc.) directly to the conference secretariat.

To ensure a high scholarly level for the conference, the conveners have been asked to invite some scholars to deliver papers. Each section includes a general session and may also contain a panel on a specific topic, for both of which proposals of papers are welcome. Scholars wishing to present a paper who have not been directly contacted by the respective conveners should send the titles and abstracts of their papers to the conference secretariat in Kyoto; they will be forwarded to the relevant conveners, who will review them and include all found suitable.
