EuARe is launching a call for hosting institutions for 2024, 2025, and 2026 Annual Conferences.


Organising a conference like ours, which can count on wide participation and a high number of proposed panels and activities, can be a great challenge but also an important opportunity to serve the whole scientific community and give visibility to a specific scholarly environment, be it local, national or international in its breadth.

We want to make our experience more fruitful and impactful for you all and we look forward to receiving proposals from Institutions, Associations and other Entities willing to organise our future conferences.


The application must include:

1.    Name of the proposing Institution and names and professional profiles of the persons involved in the organization of the conference

2.    Proposed overarching topic of the conference

3.    Proposed dates, considering local and European academic calendars

4.    A description of the proposed venue: history, facilities, number and typologies of rooms available and their equipment, accommodations available


Applications must be sent in a text file with a pdf format, not exceeding 15 pages (including images). The deadline for proposal submission for the year 2024 is November 30, 2022.
