VANDA is an international conference, taking place in the beautiful capital of Austria. It aims to bring together scholars from various fields of anthropology, social sciences and humanities. 

VANDA is meant to be more than a mainstream conference. It includes an interactive Young Scholars’ Forum, where graduate students can network, receive mentoring and practical advice from experienced researchers. Apart from the classic conference formats, session organizers are free to introduce their own creative formats.

VANDA is a green, socially inclusive conference and offers a unique social activity program. It is hosted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the University of Vienna.
