Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are very sorry for the late communication. The pandemic delayed a lot of decision-making processes in Poland, and we had to wait longer than expected for the results of our funding applications, as well as for the full re-opening of the accommodation base and event management businesses to provide you with information that is both reliable and
While we received the funding decisions eventually, there are still many uncertainties regarding the accommodation. We are happy to announce that we were able to keep the conference fee on the level of the previous one, i.e. 120 euros for scholars, with a reduced fee for students (pre-PhD) at 75 euros. Participants from Sudan and Egypt are exempted from payment.
You can find the list of accommodation offers under this link http://bwz.uw.edu.pl/zakwaterowanie-w-warszawie/. It includes venues where the conference participants can get discounted rates, but most of them are not yet booking for summer 2022 and will presumably start doing so in September 2021. Please be patient, we will update accommodation
information as soon as it becomes available. You may also search Airbnb or Booking.com websites. They have a great selection of various flats and rooms for rent.
Conference Programme: Call for Session Themes
After discussion with the Board of our Society, we have decided to arrange the programme of the conference around themed sessions (see the suggested sessions in attachment and on the 15th ICNS website: https://nubianstudies2022.uw.edu.pl/main-sessions/). Since this is a novelty, and because we would like the conference to be more participatory in terms of programme creation, we would like to invite participants to set up their sessions, too. This will be a two-step process: At this point, we announce the call for sessions with a deadline for submissions on 15 October 2021. Following this date, another call will be opened for papers, which the conference participants will submit to one of the sessions. The deadline for the call for papers will be 31 March 2022.
Nubian studies are multidisciplinary and require diverse forms of scholarly interaction. If a workshop or roundtable is a
more suitable way to interact in your discipline or research area, please feel free to organize such a meeting during the conference. For assistance, please contact the Organising Committee at [email protected] with your idea for a workshop or roundtable before 15 October 2021. Basic information and detailed instructions on how to submit your proposal for a session, workshop or roundtable can be accessed following the link https://nubianstudies2022.uw.edu.pl/registration1/.
Timetable for calls:
23 July 2021 – 15 October 2021: call for sessions, workshops and roundtables
1 November 2021 – 31 March 2022: call for papers
