For the first time, the international organization on Vedic studies will hold their annual conference at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Interested individuals are invited to submit abstracts or full papers for presentation.

The Eleventh International Conference of the World Association of Vedic Studies (WAVES) will be held July 31–August 3 and will have the theme ''Vedic Living in a Modern World.''

''This year's conference location is particularly appropriate for the theme of the conference, since MUM is an accredited university based on Vedic principles of Consciousness-Based education,'' said David Scharf, one of the organizers. ''The MUM community is an example of Vedic living in a modern world.''

The conference brings together individuals and organizations having academic interest in diverse areas of Indic and Vedic Studies. Those who attend include independent scholars, academics, writers, journalists, media persons, artists, and others.

Suggested topics for presentation can cover a wide range of areas, such as insider / outsider perspectives on Vedic culture, the origin of Vedic knowledge, and changing paradigms on Vedic knowledge.

The deadline for 200-word abstracts is April 15. The deadline for full papers is May 31. Submissions can be emailed to:

Full papers that are accepted will be published in a book.

Individuals from MUM have attended past WAVES conferences, and officials from WAVES visited campus last August. Dr. Scharf said they were very impressed, and decided that MUM would be a good venue for the next conference.
