Hybrid format – 24th International Congress of Byzantine Studies

Via Derek Krueger, President of the USNCBS

The 24th International Congress of Byzantine Studies in Venice and Padua will be held in hybrid format, in line with all other Congress activities. This entails both in-person and remote attendance, to ensure participation even in the event of a flare up of the pandemic and in view of the international instability which is regrettably afflicting the whole of Europe.
—–

The event is fast approaching and we are witnessing a considerable interest in attending it in person after this extended period of limited mobility. Nevertheless, we expect there to be some personal as well as more general situations that make in-person attendance of the Congress in Venice and Padua impossible.

We therefore officially wish to announce that the 24th International Congress of Byzantine Studies will be held in hybrid format, in line with all other Congress activities. This entails both in-person and remote attendance, to ensure participation even in the event of a flare up of the pandemic and in view of the international instability which is regrettably afflicting the whole of Europe.

In order to confirm your participation to the Congress, whether in person or online, we kindly request you to fill in the relevant form at this link by July 1st 2022 (https://byzcongress2022.org/mode-of-participation/). Please note that the choice you make will be irrevocable.

The form must be filled in with the following information:

  • name, surname, email address
  • choice of in-person or online participation

We remind you that for organisational reasons each speaker is kindly request to upload the abstract in its final version by April 30th 2022. Please find more info at this link (https://byzcongress2022.org/abstract/).

Last but not least, we should note that all Congress activities will take place in accordance with the norms in force in Italy as regards measures for the prevention and containment of Sars-Cov-2 contagion. In light of this, we trust you will show understanding, should it become necessary to make any last-minute organisational changes.

We once again thank you for your participation – do not hesitate to get in touch, should you have any queries.

Best regards,

The Organizing Office
