Preparations for the Sixteenth International Congress of the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies to be held in Vienna, Austria between 2 and 7 August 2015 are well under way. We are delighted with the interest shown in the congress: 285 papers (individual papers, special sessions and posters) will be presented. In the meantime, every person who submitted an abstract has been informed about its acceptance or non-acceptance by the Executive Committee.
The theme of the Congress will be: “Contextus Neolatini. Neo-Latin in local, trans-regional and worldwide contexts /Neulatein im lokalen, transregionalen und weltweiten Kontext“. Papers on all aspects of Neo-Latin studies are welcome. Especially invited are contributions on Neo-Latin and the vernacular, on Neo-Latin and pedagogics, and on digital projects. The organisers also welcome proposals for posters on Neo-Latin research projects.
The Plenary papers will be given by:

- Fabio Stok – University of Rome
- Avelina Carrera de la Red – University of Valladolid
Jozef IJsewijn Prize
Prof. Dr. Jozef IJsewijn (1932−1998) was the inspiration behind the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies. The Association is offering a reward for the best book published in the interval between conferences as a way to honour the late Professor IJsewijn and as a stimulus for young scholars to engage in Neo-Latin research. Scholars who have come out with their first published book in the field are invited to submit this work to the Chair of the Advisory Board of the IANLS. The book has to be written in one of the official languages of the IANLS. The winner’s name will be announced at the opening of the 2015 conference, and he/she will achieve life-long membership of the Association.
The Executive Committee of the IANLS and the Organizing Committee of the Sixteenth International Congress at the University of Vienna are pleased to offer a limited number of travel bursaries for doctoral students and early career researchers (within 3 years of their PhD award) to cover the costs of travel to the congress venue in 2015. In case of interest please fill out the application form.
