The 2017 conference of the Australasian Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy (ASACP) aims to provide a broad intellectual forum for academics and postgraduates working in comparative philosophy and Asian philosophical traditions.

ASACP is a professional society of researchers and thinkers on the frameworks, ideas and approaches of different traditions in Asia. We believe that the Asian traditions of thought hold significant insights that continue to have contemporary relevance. We seek to explain these insights, and to engage with Western and continental European philosophical traditions so as to gain a richer and more diverse understanding of life, the earth, environment and spirituality.

The ASACP is affiliated with the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) and has previously held conferences in conjunction with other academic societies and institutions, including the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy (SACP), the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, and the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP). The ASACP is committed to holding biennial conferences. It also has a long-standing partnership with the peer-reviewed journal, Sophia: International Journal of Philosophy and Traditions.
