The Middle European Student Indology Conference (MESIC) was initiated in 2009 by students from the University of Zagreb, the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and the University of Wrocław. This year, will be the fourth time that MESIC will be organized by students of Wratislavian Indology for students of other Indology Departments (together with doctoral students) and those fascinated by Indian culture.
