International Ancient Warfare Conference
2023 - June 22-24 in Sioux Falls (USA), Bonn (Germany) and online
Announcing an annual hybrid conference where all researchers on ancient warfare from around the world can get together in the same conference setting to share research and ideas.
Papers on any aspect, era or global location of Ancient Warfare and any relevant discipline are sought to facilitate a multi-disciplinary discussion.
The conference is aimed equally at postgraduate students, early career researchers and established academics.
The conference is organized in a hybrid form: Participants once approved have the choice to present their papers via Zoom only or to participate in one of the two in-person meetings.
There will be an in-person meeting in Sioux Falls, SD for North American participants, and one in Bonn, Germany for European participants as a part of the same conference. These in person gatherings will connect via Zoom for all papers.
Papers should not be longer than 20 minutes. Participants gathered in a location are invited to present live over zoom. Participants via Zoom would submit a pre-recorded video of their presentation (with or without slides) and then join the conference on Zoom for 10 minutes of questions and discussion afterwards. Scholars in all time zones will have a chance to present and answer live questions on Zoom.
There are no fees for the in-person meetings. Participants in Bonn (especially doctoral students) will be reimbursed for part of their travel expenses, depending on the number of participants.
This conference will be environmentally friendly and cheaper since no one has to take a long distance flight to attend while still preserving the excitement of gathering in person.
