April 23 – 25, 2021
Due to the current situation with COVID- 19 and considering the safety of our valuable members and attendees, ARCE has decided to host its 2021 Annual Meeting virtually.
Student Paper Contest submission will be open but Student Poster Contest and general Poster submissions won’t be open this year.
ARCE members who wish to present at the 2021 Annual Meeting should submit abstracts to the review committee on the All Academic platform no later than January 8, 2021.
A double-blind vetting process will be employed. Neither reviewers nor submitters will be informed of one another’s identities. Abstracts should provide a brief overview of the topic, clearly state the research goals and note the impact of the work in the relevant area of study. (Results should be relayed during the presentation itself - as appropriate - not necessarily in the abstract.) In order to preserve the blind review component, text of abstracts should not include personally identifiable information.
The review committee is comprised of scholars in both ancient and modern Egyptian studies who will review submissions in the following categories:
- Ancient Egypt
- Archaeology: includes archaeological sciences, bioarchaeology and field reports
- Language and literature: includes philology and text studies
- Art and artifacts: includes art, art History, museum collections and objects
- Ancient Nubia
- Conservation: includes project reports, techniques and training
- Historic and Modern Studies
- Coptic Studies
- Medieval to Ottoman Egypt
- Modern Egyptian Culture and Society
- History of Egyptology
- Technological Advents/Advances
- All submitters must be members of ARCE in good standing. Membership status can be confirmed by contacting ARCE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Abstracts must not exceed 250 words.
- Submitters will be notified via email regarding the acceptance, waitlist or rejection of their abstract by mid-February 2021.
- All presenters must provide their own funding to attend the Annual Meeting.
- All presenters must register for the Annual Meeting by February 19, 2021. Failure to register by February 19 will result in removal of their paper/poster from the program.
- Presenters and co-presenters must be defined during initial submission in All Academic and may not be added after the abstract due date.
- No individual may submit more than one paper.
- All students interested in submitting a paper (whether or not they are interested in competing for the Best Student Paper/Poster) must arrange for an approval or recommendation letter from their supervisor be sent directly to ARCE by email to BSP@arce.org by January 8, 2021.
- All submissions must be in English.
- All student paper and presentations will be vetted along with all other member submissions. Only after peer review is completed will accepted student presentations be considered for inclusion in the paper and poster contests.
- Submission of an abstract is a commitment by the submitter(s) to present the paper virtually.
- Papers may not be presented by anyone other than the named author(s).
- Presentations will run about 20 minutes, with an additional five minutes for questions.
When submitting an abstract, please be aware that the program for presentations for ARCE’s 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting is tentatively planned for April 23- 25 and if your paper is accepted for the program it may be scheduled at any time during this date.
Changes to the schedule are possible depending on the final number of accepted submissions.
Requests for presenting on a specific day will only be accommodated for religious reasons and should be included in your submission.
As of January 8th, 2021, neither abstracts nor titles will be adjustable. However, submitters will retain access to edit contact information via the All Academic website.
