Appel à comm: XXVIIe Congrès International de Papyrologie, 29 juill.-3 août 2013, Varsovie (Pologne)
On behalf of the Organising Committee, we are pleased to invite you to take part in the 27th International Congress of Papyrology in 2013 in Warsaw, Poland. The Congress is organised under the patronage and in close cooperation with the International Association of Papyrologists.
The Polish capital hosted scholars interested in papyrology, history of Graeco‐Roman Egypt, and ancient laws during the 10th International Congress of Papyrology already over a half a century ago, in 1961. Bringing this event again to Poland’s capital shows the strength and vitality of the Warsaw papyrological milieu centred around The Journal of Juristic Papyrology.
All relevant information concerning the venue and registration is to be found on the Congress website: www.papyrocongress2013.wpia.uw.edu.pl. Further information on accommodation, programme and events will be posted at a later date.
All correspondence will be sent by e‐mail: email@example.com
Five days of sessions will be scheduled. The sixth day will be reserved for the General Assembly of the AIP devoted to obituaries and a general discussion of current problems in our discipline.
The papers will be presented in one of the following languages: English, French, German, and Italian.
The sessions will be divided into two categories:
1) Plenary sessions, held in the morning, with papers read by invited scholars and devoted to the presentation of the results of recent work in the main fields of papyrology.
2) Parallel sessions held in the afternoon, with papers grouped according to subject matter. Two types of presentations will be accepted:
• Papers (20 minutes)
• Short papers (10 minutes)
Posters will be exhibited in addition to the sessions.
The Participants are required to submit abstracts (max. 200 words) of papers and poster presentations by e‐mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

At the moment we are only able to present a preliminary information concerning the Congress Programme. The detailed Programme shall be available on Congress website shortly after the closing date for abstract submissions.
There are six main sessions planned during the Congress (two for each day). The sessions shall be grouped according to the following chronological and thematic order: Ptolemaic Egypt, Roman Egypt, Late-Antique/Byzantine Egypt, Coptic and Arab Egypt, Juristic Papyrology, Literary Papyri.
