International Association for Coptic Studies (IACS)

12th International Congress of Coptic Studies

Brussels, 11-16 July 2022



Coronavirus

The current trajectory of the pandemic and the unlikelihood that vaccines will be thoroughly administered before summer have persuaded us, in agreement with the IACS Board, to postpone the 12th International Congress of Coptic Studies to 11-16 July 2022. A congress in July 2021 would most likely be poorly attended and would need to be at least partially virtual (which is not a good solution for such a large congress), while 2022 offers the possibility to have a “normal” congress. 

All registrations and proposals for papers, as well as scholarships that have already been granted, will be maintained. In fall 2021, we will allow those of you who wish to do so to change the subject and/or the abstract of their paper. New registrations will also be possible.
