10th International Congress of Egyptologists 2008

I posted about this before, but prior to the website being functional. The website is now up and running with full details of the 10th International Congress of Egyptologist, which is scheduled to run from 22nd to 29th May 2008. The congress website is at the above address (click on the image to enter the site).
The 10th Congress will be held at Rodos Palace Hotel & Convention Center on the island of Rhodes in Greece.
A focus on multi-disciplinary approaches is being encouraged. Disciplines and themes are expected to include at least some or all of the following (however, the list is not exclusive):
- Cultural Heritage, Egypt
- Greece in Antiquity: ethnicity, cross-cultural interactions and adaptations
- Archaeology and History of Art
- The Egyptian belief-system: knowledge, sacred and profane Sociology
- Literature and Philology
- The Archaic state and the origins of culture
- Foreign Relations and Diplomacy
In addition to the papers read, there will be poster sessions and the opportunity for the arrangement of special forums for work-groups.
The Academic Committee is made up of the following individuals, in alphabetical order: John Baines (Oxford), Christopher J. Eyre (Liverpool), Nicholas Grimal (Paris), Zahi Hawass (Cairo), Yvan Koenig (Paris), Alan B. Lloyd (Swansea), Ludwig Morenz (Leipzig), Joachim Friedrich Quack (Heidelberg), Robert K. Ritner (Chicago), Alessandro Roccati (Rome), Pascal Vernus (Paris).
The last Congress was held at Grenoble in September 2004.
