Please hereby find the following notice from Professor Franciszek Longchamps de Bérier regarding the next Session of the Société Internationale Fernand de Visscher pour l’Histoire des Droits de l’Antiquité (SIHDA):
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I am writing to remind you that we decided in Paris and Bologna to hold the 72nd Session of the Société Internationale Fernand de Visscher pour l’Histoire des Droits de l’Antiquité (SIHDA) at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. The conference will begin on Tuesday afternoon, September 11, 2018, and end on Saturday, September 15, 2018. The central theme, as we decided in Bologna, is:
Plus ratio quam vis
Your paper has to focus on Antiquity Law or the heritage of Antiquity Law, and as always will be scheduled for 20 minutes with 10 minutes for discussion. We remind you that French is the official language of the conference, but your papers may also be given in English, Italian, German or Spanish. As usual, all colleagues wishing to give a paper are asked to send a short summary (ca. 10 lines) before June 30.
You can register now at sihda2018.pl
Concerning the registration process, the university accounting office allows us to propose the registration fee only in Polish zloty (PLN). The fee includes lunches, a concert on Wednesday evening, a dinner in wedding style outside Kraków on Thursday evening, and our visit to the salt mine in Wieliczka with a gala dinner in the mine. During the registration process, it is not necessary to indicate your date of birth unless you want to take advantage of the reduction in the conference fee for participants under 30 years of age. On Saturday, we plan a choice between three possible visits: Ojców National Park, Auschwitz-Birkenau, or the John Paul II route. For tax reasons, the cost of the chosen visit is included in the higher conference fee.
Although the fee is kept similar to those of the recent SIHDA conferences, it is counterbalanced by much lower costs of accommodation in Kraków. I will provide you with a list of good hotels in various standards. All of them have reasonable prices and special rates for SIHDA participants. Referring to the payment of fees, cancellation before June 30, 2018, will entitle you to a full refund, but after that date no refund will be possible. And the lower fees are only in effect until June 20, 2018.
In case of any question regarding payments and the registration process, please contact the Jagiellonian University Department of Communications and Marketing–Conferences. Their e-mail address is email@example.com
If I can be of any assistance to you, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to seeing you in Kraków,
Franciszek Longchamps de Bérier
Kraków, February 12, 2018
