It will return to Nanjing, China, in 2020.

The event remains the main philosophical institution in Asia for the study of Deleuze and Guattari, whose interdisciplinary members continue to make important contributions to other Deleuze and Guattari gatherings around the world. With this in mind, it is a very rare time for the 2020 camp and conference in Nanjing, and we will continue to share ideas in a new and new way, discussing and thinking about Deleuze and Guattari in the spirit of previous meetings.

Both Deleuze and Guattari's intellectual disciplines welcome all open, earnest and happy thinkers. It’s the only truly open contemporary philosophy.

The theme for the conference is ‘Material Agency、Post-humanism and Sustainable Development’. The relation of human and material is the departure of thinking about the issues of post-humanism and sustainable development.

According to previous activities, summer schools or camps will be held prior to the Deleuze/Guattari meeting. The appropriate meeting of the conference will be held at the Xianlin Campus of and material is the departure of thinking about the issues of post-humanism and sustainable development.
