Call for Papers and Participation

The Athens Center for Classical & Byzantine Studies (ACCBS) of ATINER is organizing its 2nd Annual International Conference on Classical and Byzantine Studies, 3-6 June 2019, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Philology, the Athens Journal of History, Athens Journal of Humanities & Arts, Athens Journal of Mediterranean Studies and the Athens Journal of Architecture.

The conference aims at bringing together academics and researchers from around the world to present current research on all aspects of Classical and Byzantine cultures, including (but not limited to) the study of literature, philosophy, history, law, politics, theology, music, art, architecture, science, technology, as well as the Classical tradition and the reception of Classics by Western or Byzantine intellectuals. Scholars may participate as stream leaders, presenters, session chairs or observers; however, they may present only one paper and chair only one session in the conference.

Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/2019fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Myceanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions, 37 Units and five Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
