You are cordially invited to participate in the First World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES). The World Congress aims to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in Middle Eastern studies in its broadest sense. The invitation is addressed to scholars, researchers, educators,
students, professionals and other groups interested in studies on North Africa, the Middle East and the Muslim states of Central Asia as well as other regions of the world, which are directly or indirectly affected by affairs in these areas.
The World Congress will bring together about 2000 experts from all branches of humanities, social sciences and related disciplines to share and exchange their research, experience and ideas about all aspects of Middle Eastern studies as well as to discuss methodo-logical-theoretical and practical-political challenges and their potential solutions.
Individuals and organizations interested in attending the World Congress or in arranging sub-conferences, symposia, panels, roundtables, exhibitions and cultural events should complete the online registration form, which is available on the website.
Abstracts for individual papers (300-400 words) must arrive at the WOCMES Secretariat not later than February 15, 2002. Following the review of the abstracts by the program committee, authors will be notified of the acceptance of their proposals after April 15, 2002.
