Please see the Call for Papers and the submitted abstracts as well as the abstracts from the previous edition.

All reports will be collected approximately three months after the conference to be published in the Bulgarian e-Journal of Archaeology.

The conference in 2017 will be the fifth Filov Symposium and the second with international participation.


Abstracts and List of Participants Published

We have published the list of participants and their abstracts. Please let us know if you would like to correct your abstract or submit keywords, if you haven’t done so already.

Please send us your slides by the 15th of November. It would be best to have your slides be in PDF format to ensure that they work correctly. You can usually obtain a PDF version of your slides by using an Export to PDF or similarly named option. This might be found under the File menu, perhaps under File > Export. However, we will do our best to also accommodate some other common file types. The computers used for presentations will have either Windows or Ubuntu running on them.

The locations for the conference can be found here, along with instructions for reaching the university from the airport and train and bus stations.
