On 14-16 June 2011 a conference was held in Paris on recent achievements in Dunhuang studies, with the title ‘Rencontres franco-chinoises sur les Etudes de Dunhuang: Actualité de la recherche et publications récentes.’ The conference was organized by the UMR and EFEO and was held at Collège de France (first day) and EFEO (second day). Participants principally included French researchers and Chinese guests from the Dunhuang Academy, although Helen Wang of the British Museum and IDP’s Imre Galambos also gave papers.

In the afternoon of the second day participants visited the Musée Guimet and were shown paintings on textile from the Pelliot collection. On the third day they visited the Bibliothèque nationale de France where they had a chance to see some of the rare manuscript treasures from Dunhuang.
