The main activity of MELCom International (MI) is to organise three-day annual conferences that include scientific communications and visits to local libraries and/or museums, institutions of interest to the MI community. The meetings are held in a different country every year, alternating Europe and the MENA.
All those interested in the aims and scope of MI are invited to attend the conference. However, travel and accommodation expenses are met by the attendee. Small grants are offered to two or three candidates whose institutions do not fund their participation. Grant requests are addressed to the Secretary and examined by a Grants Committee made up of three permenant members not on Board.
The working languages of MI are English and French only.
Call for papers and circulars are released in January ; they are posted on both the present website and the discussion list.
For further information, please contact the Secretary.
