IVth Central European Conference of Young Egyptologists

Thanks very much to Paula Veiga, who is speaking at the conference about the role of magic in medicine, for providing the address for the English language version of the Budapest conference website that I posted about yesterday: "The aim of the conference series initiated in 1999 is to provide opportunity for the region’s doctoral students and young colleagues to present their work and discuss the current state of Egyptological research in these countries. It is also an excellent occasion for reports and presentations about excavation projects pursued in Egypt. The conference aroused great interest throughout the world, and we have received a high number of applications from Australia to Russia. We have done our best to accept the most applications possible in order to create a colourful event, still, we could not give a positive answer to everyone. Even so, the programme of the conference has turned out to be rather dense".
The site includes a preliminary programme and abstracts, both in PDF format visitor maps for the two conference venues and newsletters (in MS Word format).
