We are pleased to announce the upcoming International Conference
"Scythians, Sarmatians, Alans: Iranian-Speaking Nomads of the Eurasian
Steppes", which will be held at the Autonomous University of Barcelona
(Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona - UAB) from Monday 7th to Thursday
10th May 2007, in close collaboration with the Institute of Ethnology
and Anthropology RAN (Moscow).

The main objectives of this conference are:
- to act as a forum for discussion and to promote scholarly exchange
between Eastern and Western academics dealing with this subject, and
- to bring together leading authorities in the field, in order to
provide a state-of-the-art overview of the archaeology, history,
language and culture of the Iranophone nomads of the Eurasian steppes,
to be published as proceedings in both English and Russian.

However, so as to facilitate scientific exchange, participants are
strongly encouraged to submit their papers in English (or, eventually,
French). Applicants should initially register their interest in
attending the conference by filling in the enclosed application and
returning a copy of this document to the E-Mail address
(or by fax to +34 93 5813114).

[The deadline for submitting a paper had been extended until 1st
December 2006.]

The congress will be composed of different working sessions, arranged
in chronological order and combining papers devoted to archaeological,
historical and philological problems related to three main historical
periods (Scythian, Sarmatian & Alanic).
