Friday 7, Sunday 8 & Monday 9, December 2019

As is well known, since 2016 the Mount Athos Center has organised an annual international scientific workshop as part of its programme of annual institutional events.
The main aim of these international scientific workshops is to foster a fruitful scientific dialogue that will enrich our knowledge of Athonite monasticism and broaden the field of inquiry in research on Mount Athos. The scientific workshops provide the scientific community with an opportunity, through papers presented either by individuals or groups, to publicise the latest results of research, or to make known the early findings of projects or scientific programmes that are currently in progress, thereby helping to produce even better results.   
Needless to say, the papers presented at the workshop should be on subjects directly relating to Mount Athos (e.g. history, art, theology, law, Athonite institutions, literature, archaeology, art history, architecture, natural environment, other visual arts, conservation of art works etc.).  

The Fourth International Scientific Workshop will be held in Thessaloniki on Saturday 7 December and Sunday 8 December 2019

This year, on Monday 9 December 2019, the workshop will be followed by a special one-day conference on the life and work of St. Savvas of Chilandari which will form part of the programme of events – to be held in Thessaloniki and Belgrade – celebrating the 800th anniversary of the consecration of the Athonite monk, St. Savvas of Chilandari, as the first archbishop of the Church of Serbia (1219-2019).

This conference, which is being organised as a separate event, will host speakers especially invited for the purpose.    
Over the two days on which the International Scientific Workshop is held, 15 papers will be presented, each of which will last 20 minutes and will immediately be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. 
All those wishing to present a paper at the Workshop should complete the attached entry form, which must be submitted together with a summary in 300-400 words of their proposed paper. Any entry form that is not accompanied by a summary will not be considered by the Scientific Committee during the selection process.    
The deadline for submission of the Entry Forms is July 31, 2019.

During the process of selecting the papers to be included in the Workshop’s final programme, the Scientific Committee will take into account, amongst other things, the range of proposals submitted, the subject-matter they cover compared with other proposals, the use and presentation of original material, and also the presentation of new research programmes. Particular attention will be paid to individual or group proposals by young researchers.
