The 14th International Congress of the International Federation of Associations of Classical Studies (FIEC) will be held in Bordeaux (France) between Monday 25th August and Saturday 30th August 2014. After the congress in Berlin (2009), this meeting in Bordeaux will give classicists from around the world and at all stages of their careers the opportunity to gather and provide an overview of the most recent research in classical studies.
The three French associations affiliated to FIEC (Association Guillaume Budé, Association pour l’Encouragement des Études grecques en France and Société des Études latines) have entrusted the organization of this 14th Congress to the Michel de Montaigne-Bordeaux 3 University and to the Ausonius Institute, a very active research center internationally recognized in the field of classical studies. The President of the Congress is Prof. Valérie Fromentin (Ausonius Director). Prof. Jean-Louis Ferrary (Institut de France, EPHE, president of the Association Guillaume Budé) is Honorary President and Prof. Sophie Gotteland is General Secretary. The congress is supported by an Organization Committee (local, national and international). This Organization Committee has established a list of 17 panels and has invited the 34 guest speakers (two for each panel) who will deliver the opening and closing lectures of each panel.
All sessions will take place in the Congress Center « Athénée municipal » located in the historical center of Bordeaux. The Athénée municipal provides a large auditorium for up to 500 persons, convenient for the plenary sessions, and eleven conference rooms for the various panels sessions.
The registration process (with online payment) will be managed through this website, from February 2013 onwards. From January onwards, the website will provide all information about fees, conditions and registration procedure.
