The organisers of the fourth annual 'Oxford Postgraduate Conference in Assyriology' wish to extend an invitation to all UK, European and overseas students whose research relates to the field of Assyriology. The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for students at postgraduate level to present their research to a group of peers and to establish connections with colleagues.

For the past three years, OPCA has been sponsored by the Lorne Thyssen Research Fund for Ancient World Topics at Wolfson College, University of Oxford (2012 -2014), and an outreach grant by British Institute for the Study of Iraq (2013-2014). Programmes for past conferences can be found at: http://oxfordassyriology.wordpress.com

This two-day conference will be held at Wolfson College, Oxford from Friday afternoon, 24 April to Saturday evening, 25 April, 2015. The conference is pleased to announce two invited senior talks, given by Dr. Frances Reynolds (Oxford University) and Dr. Nicholas Postgate (Cambridge University).

There is a conference fee of £12 that goes towards hospitality costs and allows us to continue awarding student grants for attendance. The fee is subsidized and the costs of the conference met by our generous financial supporters. Refreshments between sessions, lunch, wine reception and a dinner are included.

Space permits a limited number of people, chosen on a first come basis, and registration is now open at:


Our call for papers has a submission deadline of February 25th, 2015 (emailopca@orinst.ox.ac.uk.) Successful papers are allotted 20 minutes followed by questions.
