Dear members:

Since we had heard rather little recently about the plans for the Congress in 2001, I wrote Paris to see what was cooking. Here is what I learned.

1. The second circular will go out in September, to everyone who returned the first circular. It will have a provisional program, as well as information on registration costs, accomodations, and on how the Abstracts of communications should be submitted.

2. The deadline for the submission of these Abstracts is presently being set as the beginning of February 2001. The length will be restricted to one typewritten page of A4 size; it will have to be submitted on disk as well as on hard copy. More details will be coming in the second circular.

If you never returned the first circular - in other words, if you wish to try to get on the mailing list - by all means write J.-F. Vannier, College de France, Centre d'histoire et civilisation de Byzance, 52 rue du Cardinal Lemoine, F- 75005, Paris, France. I assume you can still get on the list - but if not, don't worry, as we can get the information to you next fall from here. You can also keep an eye on the Web page, via

That's about all I know right now. I hope it helps - and that it leaves you the summer to relax....

Nancy Sevcenko
