Papers presented at the Symposium of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Archaeology and Art, organized by the XAE, must be original and constitute an essential contribution to scholarship. Delivery time should not exceed 15 minutes. Participation is restricted to one paper per speaker, but the collaboration of speakers is permitted. The language of the Symposium is Greek. Invited foreign participants may speak in English or French.
Also, it is possible to present posters.
The Board of the XAE can propose changes to or even reject papers, in those cases where they do not meet the requirements of originality and contribution to scholarship. For the best organization of the Symposium, the following measures have been decided upon:
- Papers that do not comply with the aforesaid specifications and that are not received by the deadline given in the relevant circulars will not be accepted.
- If a summary is not received by the deadline and is therefore not published in the Symposium issue, then it is not permitted to present the paper.
- Papers on issues other than art history or archaeology of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine periods are not accepted.
- Summaries in excess of two pages are not accepted. Abstracts longer than 500 words or two pages are not accepted.
