CFP: Int’l Congress of Slavists (Belgrade, Serbia)

Deadline to Submit Applications: April 1, 2016

The International Congress of Slavists is a quinquennial gathering of Slavists in the humanities and social sciences from forty countries worldwide. It is organized by the International Committee of Slavists (ICS), which consists of the chairs of each of constituent national committees. The full ICS meets during the year of the Congress itself. At other times, the business of the ICS is handled by the full Presidium, which meets once in intervening years to plan the next Congress in detail, or by the reduced Presidium, which meets in other intervening years to act on minor issues that require resolution. For more information about ICS, please visit here!

The International Congress of Slavists will be held in late summer, August 20–27, 2018, in Belgrade, Serbia. The general plan will contain a day of arrival (August 19), a day of departure (August 27), and six working days for the Congress split into 3-day segments separated by a free day (August 23) for excursions organized by the host Serbian Committee of Slavists.
