      CALL FOR PAPERS AND PRE-REGISTRATION

      Building a Harmonious and Sustainable Society, Message from the
      Ancient Near East

      20-21 June 2006
      Peking University, Beijing, China

      The Institute of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Peking
      University, Beijing, China, as the only center in Ancient Near
      Eastern Studies in China, is holding a Research Conference, entitled
      ¡°Building A Harmonious and Sustainable Society, Message from the
      Ancient Near East¡±, to be held at Peking University Campus from
      Tuesday 20 June until Wednesday 21 June 2006.

      The purpose of the conference is to invite foreign scholars in our
      field to visit China and to share their experience with Chinese
      colleagues. China, an ancient civilization recently reinvigorated by
      rapid economic growth, is interested to learn from scholars of other
      great cultures how to meet the challenges and to incorporate ancient
      experience in modern development. The working language of the
      conference is English.

      The Conference Committee is now calling for papers to be presented,
      for sessions, lasting 30£­50 minutes. Papers from all scholars in the
      field of Near Eastern Studies, including but not limited to
      Assyriology, Hittitology, Egyptology, Biblical Studies, Persian
      Studies and Islamic Studies are welcome. The abstracts of the
      proposed papers should not exceed 200 words and are expected by 30
      April 2006, to Dr Yiyi Chen, <yiyi.chen@...>.

      Applicants will be notified by early May. Please note that the
      Committee cannot cover travel and accommodation costs and presenters
      are expected to register for the conference. We hope to secure
      publication of the papers submitted in due course.

      The Conference also welcomes observers from all around the world who
      are interested in this field of study and its development in China.
