The OIKOS abstract seminar for PhD candidates is a two-day event:

Friday November 3, 2:00-5:00 PM

Friday December 1, 2:00 PM-5:00 PM

In this seminar, PhD students learn how to write a good abstract for the yearly SCS (Society for Classical Studies, formerly known as American Philological Association) and AIA (Archaeological Institute of America) conference. They are taught the basics of abstract-writing, comment on each other’s abstracts and receive feedback from two senior members of OIKOS. Although the guidelines of the SCS and AIA conferences are adopted in the seminar, it is also useful for those who want to participate in other conferences.

In the first session, the do's and don'ts of writing an abstract for a conference are discussed, for the second session, the participants have to write an abstract that will be discussed during this session.

OIKOS PhD candidates can earn 2 EC for their participation.
