We are also happy to accept submissions concerning didactic methods in teaching Latin and other classical subjects.

Due to obvious reasons, we cannot tell now if the conference will be held as a traditional “offline” conference, or it will have to be held as an online one. We are prepared for both options, constantly monitoring the pandemic situation, and aim to hold an “offline” conference, but only if the health concerns and travelling restrictions let us to do so.

The document should also contain personal information of the author, including name, affiliation and contact email address, and the title of the presentation. Please also inform us in your application whether you intend to participate in either case (traditional “offline” conference / online conference), or only in one or the other case.
