Sebastião Rodolfo Dalgado, born in Assagão (Goa) in 1855, was a Catholic priest, but also became renowned for his linguistic work dedicated to the Indo-Portuguese creoles, Asian Portuguese, Konkani, and Sanskrit, domains in which he remains an obligatory reference. From 1908 onwards, he taught Sanskrit Language and Literature at the Curso Superior de Letras and the recently created Faculdade de Letras, in Lisbon, the city in which he would pass away on April 4th, 1922.

On the occasion of the centenary of his death, the researchers of Asian-Portuguese topics at the Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa organise the conference Dalgado 100: The work of Sebastião Dalgado, 100 years on, between April 4th and 6th, 2022, aimed at revisiting and recuperating his linguistic research.
