Call for Papers: Laetae segetes VIII – deadline extended

14–16 November 2022
Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University, Brno

The event represents an opportunity for beginning researchers to present their work. This event is a continuation of similar colloquiums held biennially since 2005. On these occasions, young scholars from various universities submitted their contributions, most of which were published in the conference proceedings or the journal Graeco Latina Brunensia.

Extended deadline

As we have received many requests for an extended submission deadline, we have now decided to extend the deadline to August 31, 2022.


The conference is planned to be held as a traditional “offline” one. If the pandemic situation makes it necessary to switch to online, we will inform you in due course. Parallel sessions and panel discussions will be scheduled over three days. Papers will be grouped by thematic sessions:

  • Ancient Literature
  • Classical Languages
  • Ancient History
  • Medieval and Neo-Latin Studies
  • Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies

There will also be several additional events. The complete conference programme will be available at the conference website.


Individual 20-minute paper presentations will be followed by 5 minutes of discussion. The conference language is English, German, Italian, or French.
Posters will be on display throughout the conference and a special award will be offered for outstanding poster presentation.

Registration fee

The standard registration fee is 65 EUR / 1 600 CZK.

The participation fee includes: reception meal (as specified in the conference programme), and refreshments during coffee breaks.

If the conference takes place as an online one, the registration fee will be reduced to minimum.


All papers will be considered for publication in the Graeco-Latina Brunensia. Articles published in this journal are covered by the following databases: Lʼannée philologique, Medioevo Latino, Poiesis, ERIH, and SCOPUS.
