Conferences

Share your ideas with the world!

Presenting at a conference is a great way of engaging with the classical world outside of UD. Presentations are typically 15 minutes long (around 7 pages double-spaced), so a term paper or a condensed version of your junior paper would work well. The Society for Classical Studies (SCS) and the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) both accept student abstracts, as does the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA). Speak to your professors about the possibility of presenting!

The SCS and the AIA have a joint annual meeting every January, and abstract deadlines are typically in April. CAMWS has its annual meeting in early April, and abstract deadlines are typically in September or October. If you are a member of Eta Sigma Phi, you can submit a paper to the annual Eta Sigma Phi convention; the convention is usually in March or April and paper deadlines are around January. You can also submit an abstract to the Eta Sigma Phi panel at the SCS.

Please note that if your abstract is accepted and you need help with your travel expenses, you can apply for the University of Dallas Experience Award.

Submitting Abstracts

The various conferences have slightly different guidelines for abstracts. Please consult the following links for guidelines.
