Proposals are invited for a lecture for the ECE IX – Ninth European Conference of Egyptologists. Egypt 2020: Perspectives of Research, which
will be held from the 22nd to the 27th of June, 2020 in Trieste,
Italy. The conference is co-organised by the Humanities Department
of the University of Trieste and the Institute of Mediterranean
and Oriental Cultures of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The first meeting took place in Warsaw in 1999. The idea came from Assistant Professor dr. Andrzej Ćwiek, supported by Assistant Professor dr. Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska and Joanna Kociankowska-Bożek of the Institute of Archaeology of the University of Warsaw. The first three symposia were held in Warsaw in 1999, 2001 and 2004, and then the Conference was organised in Budapest in 2006 (Assistant Professor dr. Andreas Gulyas). The Fifth Conference was hosted by the Pułtusk Academy of Humanities in Pułtusk, organised by Assistant Professor dr. Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska in 2009 and the Sixth in Cracow in 2012 by the Institute of Archaeology of the Jagiellonian University (Assistant Professor
dr. Mariusz Jucha, Assistant Professor dr. Joanna Dębowska-Ludwin
and Assistant Professor dr. Piotr Kołodziejczyk). The Conference
was then organised in Zagreb in 2015 (Assistant Professor dr.
Mladen Tomorad) and in Lisbon in 2017 (Professor dr. Maria Helena
Trindade Lopes).

The intention all along has been to present current research and
perspectives on it so as to cover all spheres of interest in
present-day Egyptology:

-history and chronology from prehistory to the Arab conquest
archaeological research
-artefacts (analysis, interpretation, iconography, typology, etc.)
-museum collections
-language and literature
-mythology and religion
-anthropology, forensic and radiological research
-archaeobotany, palaeozoology and palaeoecology
-history of Egyptology
-Aegyptiaca and Egyptomania

The language of the conference is English.

The deadline for the abstract submission is the 31st of December
2019, with notification of acceptance by the 1st of February
2020. Abstracts should consist of no more than 350 words and
