COMIUCAP

I got this from the website of COMIUCAP.




The World Congress of Catholic University Institutions of Philosophy (COMIUCAP or Conférence Mondiale des Institutions Universitaires Catholiques de Philosophie) will be holding its 3rd World Congress in Manila on September 11 to 13, 2008.

This will be the first time that the conference, conducted every four years, comes to Asia, with two top universities, the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of Santo Tomas, as hosts. So far, 116 delegates from fifty-one institutions (universities, colleges and seminaries) in the Philippines have registered as well as 30 delegates from twenty-one countries like China, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Congo, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Slovakia, Germany, France, Canada and the United States. The conference is expected to draw more than 200 deans, professors and graduate students of philosophy and theology from all over the world.

Addendum: the four of us will join the congress. and i anticipate that i'll be suffering from constipation and bleeding on the course of the talks. pray for me!
