15th General Conference of the Association Internationale des Études Arméniennes


This conference is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Our 15th General Conference is approaching and preparations are in full swing. As you already know, the conference, which had already been postponed for a year due to the Corona pandemic, will be held in an online format this time. As a result, some things will be different from previous conferences.We have set the time from about 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. as the daily event time frame, so that all participants, notwithstanding their time zone, could take part at a more or less reasonable time.
In addition, no one should have to sit in front of the computer for hours and hours.
With the decentralised location of all participants and the different time zones come some
challenges that require creative solutions, especially regarding the programme arrangement.
Besides, we have made an effort to accommodate the wishes of individual speakers who cannot participate on all three days.In addition to the keynote lectures, there will be one or two blocks of four parallel sessions on each day. Each session will usually include four presentations. Each speaker will have 20 minutes to give a presentation. The four presentations will be followed by a 20-minute discussion during which questions can be asked or comments made on all four contributions.
For the virtual coffee breaks more personal interaction is planned on Wonder.
The presentations will have the classic format. As we will use Zoom as a platform, there will be the opportunity to share a presentation with the audience. Participants who will give their lectures in Armenian are recommended to offer a presentation with an English summary of the main points.
We will inform you about the final procedure and the use of Zoom and Wonder as soon as


Conference languages are Armenian, English, French, German, Italian and Russian.


If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. For more information on the conference, please visit our website:
