Presentation

Vienna, November 20

Because we have been overwhelmed with a great number of applications covering a wide range of topics we have decided to make a few changes to the structure of the Congress. We have split some of the panels into smaller thematic units to allow for more speakers. Please refer to the new Congress structure shown below.

In total there will be 20 thematic panels scheduled in five sessions with four parallel panels each. All rooms will be equipped with PCs and projectors.

In addition to the panels, two plenary sessions will be dedicated to the relationship between the indigenous or local epigraphic cultures of the ancient Mediterranean area and the dominant Greek or Roman culture. The focus is on those regions and societies of the ancient world which have several languages and scriptsexisting simultaneously in their epigraphic culture. And finally the winners of the Géza Alföldy scholarship will present their papers in a plenary session.

Poster Presentation – Call for Posters

Participants will also have the opportunity to present posters. Those posters which are accepted will be on display for the duration of the Congress. Poster proposals should be submitted as abstracts (max. 250 words in one of the usual congress languages). Please submit your proposal to the organisers of the Congress (contact: theresia.pantzer@univie.ac.at) until 31st January 2017. You will be advised at the beginning of March 2017 whether your proposal has been accepted.
