1st CIRCULAR

During the last session of the International Cretological Congress, it was agreed that the next International Cretological Congress would be organized by the Association on History and Folklore Studies in Rethymnon (I. L. E. R. ). The I. L. E. R. also organized the third and seventh International Cretological Congress. The administrative Council of I. L. E. R. has already appointed the organizing Committee of the International Cretological Congress, whose Chairman will be Professor Nicolaos E. Papadogiannakis.

The Chairman and the members of the Committee are pleased to invite you to the 11th International Cretological Congress, which will take place towards the end of September 2011 in Rethymnon. The exact dates will be announced in the next Circular Letter. It is common practice to divide the proceedings into three sections which are:
a) Prehistoric and Classical
b) Byzantine and Medieval
c) Modern

All contributions should explore aspects of Cretan Culture within the contexts of Archeology, History, Art, Language, Literature and Ethnography. The thematic sub-sections will be formed according to the proposals submitted. Anyone who is interested in organizing a workshop, round-table discussion, posters or other special sessions, should contact the Organizing Committee in the address given below. The participants may use one of the following languages: Greek, English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Each presentation should not take longer than fifteen minutes plus another five minutes for discussion. During the conference many other activities, such as excursions, museum visits, site seeing etc will be made available by the organizers. Further details on these activities will be announced in the final conference program.

All applications and abstracts of papers should be sent by the end of December 2009 to Mr. Michalis Troulis (President of the Administrative Council of Public Library in Rethymnon), who will also receive all further correspondence (Address: Agia Varvara Street 26 GR 74 100 Rethymnon, Crete). The participants are kindly requested to comply with the above deadline so that the Organizing Committee has enough time to publish an abstract book to be available at the Congress. The second Circular Letter will reach those who have expressed an interest to participate within the given deadline.

Please send an abstract or proposal of around 500 words in a typed or electronic form. Further details regarding the conference will be announced in future Circular Letters.

On behalf of the Organising Committee
of the 11th International Cretological Congress.
