Drawing upon past IALS colloquia this page offers a glimpse of a typical Ladakh Studies conference. The reports (available for download in the margin) illustrate the diversity of papers and the varied backgrounds of the international participants who are usually, but not restricted to, a mix of students, independent researchers and professional academics. Of course, outside of the daily presentation sessions there are ample opportunities to informally discuss all things Ladakh, whether it be over breakfast, or dinner and a glass of wine. Conference venues usually alternate between Ladakh and a venue outside India and presentation schedules always allow participants to combine their interests in Ladakh with a spot of sightseeing on the side.
