- Kategoria: Tenth European Conference of Egyptologists. Egypt 2023: Perspectives of Research (X ECE)
All scholars with an interest in all aspects of Egyptology are cordially invited to participate in the Tenth European Conference of Egyptologists. Egypt 2023: Perspectives of Research (X ECE). The conference will be held at the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, from the 12th to the 16th of June 2023.
Some Words on History of the ECE conferences:
The three first symposia of what was then the “Central European Conference of Young Egyptologists” were held in Warsaw in 1999, 2001 and 2004. They were initiated by Andrzej Ćwiek, Joanna Kociankowska and Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska. The Conference was then organised in Budapest in 2006 and in Pułtusk in 2009, while the last three meetings took place in Cracow, in Zagreb, in Lisbon (respectively in 2012, 2015 and 2017), and the last one as an on-line event in 2021 in Trieste.
The original title was due to the fact that the first Conference was held in Poland. In the past few years, however, the organising countries and the nationalities of the participants have varied so much, that it is now time to recognise officially that this is a European gathering, based on the same principles of equality, sharing, and cooperation that have inspired the organisers.
As in the previous editions, the conference is also open to the young generations of Egyptologists (MA required), who will have a great opportunity for sharing their research with more experienced scholars, in an environment that will hopefully stimulate the growth and refinement of our discipline.
