We are pleased to announce that the 1st International Conference of Greek-Albanian Studies, will be held in Tirana, Albania, in Spring 2012. The exact date of the event will be announced before the end of this year.

There is a vast bibliography on Greek-Albanian/Albanian-Greek Studies, several meetings have been held up to day, yet not a comprehensive event has been organized. This Conference aims to make a recapitulation of the studies made so far, and to trace the main trends in the field research.

Conference Topics: All topics relevant to Greek-Albanian/Albanian-Greek Studies, especially new and innovative areas of research are welcome.

The organizers seek contributions in the form of papers and panels that will continue to examine the interaction between Greek and Albanian culture, folklore, language, and literature. Aspects of Greek-Albanian and Albanian-Greek translation can be presented. Special sections / panels will be dedicated to the literature of the Ethnic Greek Minority in Albania and to the linguistic aspects and literature of the Albanian Immigrants in Greece.

The conference will be organized by the Albanian-Greek Association of Philology, though it preserves the right to collaborate with other University and Academic Institutions in Albania, Greece and any other part of the World, or even to delegate the organization of the event on the understanding that a perfect event will be assured.

Keynote speakers from Europe and USA will address the conference at keynote and plenary sessions.
