17th FIEC International Congress
7th to 11th July 2025
We are delighted to announce the upcoming 17th Congress of the Fédération internationale des associations d’études classiques, which will be hosted by the Polish Philological Association (PTF – Polskie Towarzystwo Filologiczne, Societas Philologa Polonorum) at the Institute of Classical, Mediterranean and Oriental Studies, University of Wrocław, Poland, from 7th to 11th July 2025.
We cordially invite proposals for panels and posters, as we strive to encompass a wide range of themes that reflect the richness and diversity of classical studies, including Greek and Latin literatures of all periods, linguistics, ancient history, philosophy and religion, art and archaeology, Neo-Latin and Byzantine studies, along with the reception of classical traditions. Moreover, we encourage the submission of scholarly contributions that delve into diverse themes pertaining to the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean basin, the Near East, and Egypt.
Panel sessions, each lasting 90 minutes, will consist of three short papers centred around a common theme. Each paper should not exceed 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion. We encourage panel proposals to provide a session title, the names and affiliations of all speakers, and abstracts for each paper and the panel as a whole. Abstracts should be no more than 200 words. Kindly note that we are not accepting proposals for individual papers at this time. Furthermore, we are offering the option of presenting six papers in double panels, and interested parties should contact the organizers directly to explore this possibility.
Additionally, we welcome proposals for posters, which offer an excellent opportunity for individuals with projects that may not fit within panels. Poster proposals should include a 150-word description of the topic.
All proposals will undergo a peer-review process, with the Programme Committee aiming to finalize selections by October 2024.
The registration fee for participants is EUR 270, with a reduced rate of EUR 170 for students and PhD candidates. This fee includes conference materials, as well as lunch and coffee breaks. The banquet fee will be collected separately for those interested in attending this special event.
To submit a panel/poster proposal, please refer to our website: fiec2025.ptf.edu.pl (under the “Call for Panels” tab) and use the Submission Form.
For any further inquiries, questions, or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us at the email address: email@example.com.
We eagerly await your submissions and look forward to your active participation in our conference.
