11th International Colloquium on Ancient Greek Linguistics, Nice, June 25–27, 2025

Submission Deadline November 1st, 2024

The ICAGL Series

The 11th International Colloquium on Ancient Greek Linguistics (ICAGL) (4th in the new series) will be held in Nice in June 2025. The original series started in Amsterdam 1986 and in 2015 merged with the Italian series of conferences on Greek linguistics (Incontro Internazionale di Linguistica Greca), to start the new regular series of colloquia held every three years. This series of conferences aims to provide an international forum to present high-calibre ongoing research, or results already achieved, by scholars in the field of Ancient Greek linguistics.
