Byzantine Studies Conference

On behalf of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies, the Department of Global Humanities at Simon Fraser University, and the Lower Mainland's budding community of Byzantinists, I am delighted to welcome you back to Vancouver and the 49th parallel for the 49th annual BSANA Byzantine Studies Conference. This year's event will be held October 26-29 at SFU's Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in downtown Vancouver, a hop skip and a jump from the city's scenic waterfront, a buzzing restaurant and bar scene, and much more.

Looking forward to seeing you all in a few months,

Dimitris Krallis

Director SNF, Centre for Hellenic Studies
