The International Archaeological Conference on “Classical Pottery of the Northern Aegean and its Periphery (480-323/300 BC)” will take place in Thessaloniki (Aula of the Old Building, Faculty of Philosophy Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), on May 17-20, 2017.

The participants showed great interest in the Conference, which resulted in an outstanding collection of papers and a promising three-day program. More specifically, the Conference is scheduled to begin in the morning of Wednesday 17/5 and last through the evening of Friday 19/5, while on Saturday 20/5 there will be an optional visit to the archaeological site and museum of Ancient Pella (pre-registration mandatory at the Conference webpage by 30/4).

Due to the large number of participants, papers cannot exceed 20’, while time for discussion has been allotted after every session. Speakers are required to be at the aula at least 15΄ before the beginning of each panel and to promptly hand their PowerPoints to the Secretariat to avoid any delays. If a speaker wishes to circulate photocopies, handouts or similar material, s/he needs to prepare it in advance and inform the Conference Secretariat in a timely manner.

Hard-copies of all abstracts will be given to the speakers upon their registration and will be made available on the Conference webpage beforehand. Furthermore, all registered participants will receive a complimentary copy of the Proceedings of the First Conference on “The Archaic Pottery of the Northern Aegean and Its Periphery (700-480 B.C.),” along with additional archaeological publications.

Participation at the Conference is free and no registration fees are required. The organizers will offer a wine reception on Thursday night (18/5), as well as coffee-breaks throughout the meeting. Speakers are responsible for arranging for their own accommodation and may choose among a selection of hotels with special offers for Conference members (list available at our webpage). Please be advised that the rates indicated are given as special prices for the Conference, but they may change as well.

Instructions for editing and publishing the Proceedings will be made known in the Third Circular, after the conclusion of the Conference.
