Registration will start in the afternoon on Monday afternoon August 22 and will continue the following morning. After an opening session there will be a first plenary paper, which will be followed by shorter papers in different sessions. The papers will be presented in working sessions from Tuesday 22 through Friday 26 (closing session in the afternoon).

There will be an excursion one afternoon (Wednesday or Thursday) during the colloquium and possibly, if a sufficient number of participants are interested in it, a longer one on Saturday 27th.

The conference will be held in English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian. It will be devoted to all aspects of Late and ”Vulgar” Latin. As usual, papers will be limited to 30 minutes (including questions).

If there is enough interest one or more workshops on selected topics could be arranged.
