CFP for the POSTER SESSION Extended Deadline 31.3.2011

Roman Family VI
17-19 May 2012

Villa Lante al Gianicolo, Institutum Romanum Finlandiae, Rome

The conference sets out to continue the tradition of the previous
Roman Family Conferences, held in Canberra, Hamilton and Fribourg in
the period 1981-2007. In this conference, 'limits and borders' will be  
understood in three different ways:

1) the borders of the Roman Empire which have so far not been in the  
centre of the discussion
2) the limits of human life, by which we mean dangerous or 'darker'  
sides of childhood and family
3) the borderline between childhood/youth and the adult world.

Moreover, we will also touch upon chronological borders, by focusing  
on Late Antiquity, a period which has been intensively studied in the  
last years and has become a new and flourishing branch of family  

The poster session gives to scholars and PhD students an occasion to  
be in contact with the best specialists of the topic in the world by  
presenting their posters.

The poster should have a topic, the name(s) of the presenter(s) and  
should elaborate on its topics through text and/or graphics such as  
tables, drawings or charts. The poster size could be at maximum 100 X  
80 cm, at minimum 30x40 cm (appr. A3 size paper). Please notice that  
the font size should be larger than on normal print, as the text  
should be able to be read from further off. Ideally, poster forms the  
starting point for a brief and interactive presentation to interested  
viewers; therefore, it is recommendable that handouts are provided by  
the posters.

The conference organizers will provide poster boards. Presenters are  
responsible for bringing the poster with them (no printing services  
can be offered) and for being present at the board during breaks and  
the special poster session.

Conference fee 50€ (PhD students) / 150€ (other scholars).

A poster proposal should be no more that 250 words in length, identify  
the presenter(s) with their academis affiliation, and include the  
title of the poster with an abstract explaining its intent/main points.
