If you wish to transmit a message to the PHILIA-mailing list, please place your text inside an electronic message, without attached documents (in order to ensure a maximum protection against the eventual transmission of computer-viruses and to guarantee a maximal legibility without possible converting problems), and send it to The message is then examined by one of our collaborators and, if it does not present elements conflicting with the terms of use of PHILIA, forwarded as soon as possible to all members.

For practical reasons, we would like to ask everybody wishing to post a message to PHILIA to adapt the heading of their message in order to give in the beginning the code of the event, then its title (abbreviated, if necessary) and finally the date (or the period) concerned.

As an example, here is an imaginary title:

The codes are:
[CFP] Call for Papers concerning conferences (or for articles concerning books, for cooperations concerning projects, etc.)
[CONF] Conference, Colloquium, Symposium
[LECT] Lecture
[SEM] Seminar
[THES] Thesis project
[DEF] Thesis defence
[PUBL] Publication
[JOB] Job opportunities

[INFO] Miscellaneous

Terms of use of PHILIA

Please note that everyone subscribing to our mailing-list automatically engages himself to publish only truthful and complete information, consistent with the fundamental rights of the European Union. The organisers of PHILIA, examining all information in order to verify if these terms of use are respected, reserve their right to prevent the diffusion of a message if they judge it as offending.


The organisers of PHILIA are conscious of the delicate situation of living in a country where the academic institutions dealing with the Mediterranean Antiquity are functioning in two official languages: French and Dutch. We are nevertheless persuaded that science has to transcend every linguistic frontier and thus consider that everyone wishing to publish information may do so in the language which suits him best, including English as international lingua franca.

Multilingualism being self-evident for every serious researcher, whose everyday life leads him to deal at least in a passive and elementary way with an international bibliography, it is reasonable to assume that basic language skill should not be a major impediment to the comprehension of information. But if anyone wishes to post messages in two or three languages at the same time, he should feel free to do so and will be very welcome. The organisers of PHILIA commit themselves to send all their communications in three languages in order to assure a maximal comprehension.
