Practical information


Owing to the pandemic situation, the 18th International Saga Conference is being postponed to 7–14 August 2022. Because of the new schedule of the conference and the hybrid option, we will reopen the call for papers in the Spring of 2021. A fourth circular with the new CfP will be circulated with further information at that time. The fourth circular will also ask those whose proposals have already been accepted whether you think at that time whether you will participate physically or remotely, to help us plan accordingly. We will also invite those who wish to update your original topic to propose a new abstract on or before 1 June 2021.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this challenging time.
