Conference Organisation

The Society offers small grants to help with the organisation of one-off conferences, workshops, day-schools or seminars which are concerned with Byzantine studies, in full or part.

An applicant must be:

  • A member of the Society
  • The event organiser
  • Based in the UK

Note that grants will not be awarded retrospectively and applications from postgraduate students will be given priority.

Instead of holding a conference in the UK, organisers may collaborate with, and hold conferences at, the following British International Research Institutes:

  • The British School at Rome
  • The British School at Athens
  • The British Institute at Ankara

Applications are considered on an annual basis and must be received by 1 March. Any questions should be addressed to the Chair of the Development Committee.

Note that recipients of SPBS grants are expected to produce a short report outlining the uses to which the grant has been put and the outcome in terms of contribution to the progress of their research, within one month of completion of the event. These reports will usually be published on our website and/or in the BBBS. The SPBS reserves the right to edit reports for reasons of brevity or presentation. Post-publication amendments will not be considered except to correct errors introduced during the publication process.
