Minthogy mindkettő ugyanattól a szervezettől származik, így technikai részeiben azonos, a két felhívást egybeszerkesztettem (sajnos a honlapjukon ezek a részletek nem érhetőek el).
ARAM Society for Syro-Mesopotamian Studies is organizing
(a) its Thirtieth International Conference on the theme of “Trade Routes and Seafaring in the Ancient Near East”, to be held at the University of Oxford, 04-06 July 2011. The conference will start on Monday July 04 at 9am, finishing on Wednesday July 06 at 6pm.
(b) Thirty-First International Conference on the theme of the Amorites, to be held at the University of Oxford, 11-13 July 2011. The conference aims to study the Amorites’ kingdoms and their civilization in the Syro-Mesopotamian region; and it will start on Monday July 11 at 9am, finishing on Wednesday July 13 at 1pm.
Papers: Each talk is limited to 30 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. It would help us greatly if the speaker keeps to the time allocated in order to allow the other speakers sufficient time to address the Conference. If however a speaker feels that 30 minutes is not enough time for his/her topic, an extended version of his/her paper can be published in the book of the Symposium, while the 30 minute limit will be retained for the presentation of his/her paper at the Conference itself.
Papers will be accepted from accredited academics in the field, and please note that the Organising Committee of the Conference will be very strict in only accepting papers relevant to the main theme of the conference. We need you CV if you are a new contributor to an Aram conference. All papers given at the conference will be considered for publication in a future edition of the ARAM Periodical, subject to editorial review.
Abstract: The Organising Committee of the Conference would like to receive your abstract before the end this calendar year 2010. We will confirm that we have accepted your proposal on receipt of an abstract, which should be in the region of 500 words long and it should include a list of the keywords of the major subjects to be covered inthe paper, along with a bibliography of the primary sources that will be discussed.
Academic Research: We accept papers only from academics who are experts in the field of
their research, and we reject any paper which does not fulfil the academic requirements. We do not also accept papers of any published work, and all political interventions are forbidden in any Aram conference.
Handouts: You should prepare your own handouts, and 40-50 copies will be enough for your
