      The Art of Bronzes in Anatolia and the Eastern Mediterranean from
      Protogeometric to Early Byzantine Periods (10th century B.C. to 7th
      century A.D.)

      Dear Colleagues,

      We are pleased to announce that the XVIIth International Congress of
      Ancient Bronzes will take place on May 21-25, 2011 in Izmir, Turkey.

      This congress encourages dialogue among Turkish, European, and north
      American scholars in bronze archaeology of the Eastern Mediterranean, and
      proposes to offer a firm base for future research on bronzes in Turkey. We
      invite contributions by scholars and graduate students from disciplines
      related to this subject to discuss issues concerning ancient bronzes in
      the Mediterranean basin. Proposals may be for 10- to 20-minute papers, as
      well as for poster presentations.

      materials from Anatolia and other neighboring countries in the east.
      Presentations from the other parts of Classical world are also welcome. We
      hope to address questions of production, subject matter, function,
      chronology, and trade. Papers may deal with archaeology, technological
      history, history of art, philology, cultural anthropology. Of particular
      interest are reports from excavations in Asia Minor and the rest of the
      Eastern Mediterranean yielding Greek and Roman bronzes along with other
      stratified finds that will help to build a more precise chronology for the
