NOTE: this is the page for listings of future conferences. Discussion (and photos!) of the NCA Summer Conference on Intercultural Dialogue (Istanbul, 2009), the ICA Preconference on Intercultural Dialogue (Singapore, 2010), and the NCA Mini-Conference on International Opportunities are all on other pages (follow the embedded links). As conferences occur, their listings will be transferred to the page for past conferences.
The Center for Intercultural Dialogue does not sponsor conferences, but it strongly encourages intercultural scholars to travel internationally in order to meet professional colleagues around the world, and conferences are one of the most obvious ways to begin. There is an ever-expanding and nearly infinite list of possible conferences, so this listing should only include international conferences on topics relating to intercultural dialogue. Here are a few examples:
