The German Middle East Studies Association for Contemporary Research and Documentation (DAVO) is calling for papers for its Twelfth Annual Congress in Hamburg from 20 - 22 October 2005.

We welcome papers on all fields of contemporary Middle East studies and

the impact of this region on the development of other parts of the

world. Middle East studies are understood to include disciplines

relevant to the study of an area comprising all members of the League of Arab States, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Israel and the Muslim states of the former USSR.

Proposals for pre-organised panels and workshops on a common theme with at least three papers presented and chair are welcome. Individual paper submissions will be grouped into panels and assigned a chair. Although many of the papers will be held in German, English papers and discussions are strongly encouraged.  

Outstanding scholars will be asked to present papers which provide an overview about the state of the art in specific fields of contemporary

Middle Eastern studies. The organizers of the congress welcome proposals

for suitable speakers.

Research projects can also be presented within the framework of a presentation of posters. Especially younger academics and postgraduate

students are strongly encouraged to use this opportunity to present

their work. The size of the posters should not exceed 1.20 m in width and 1.50 m in height.

Book exhibition: Institutes, publishing companies and book shops are invited to present, free of charge, publications concerned with the Middle East, and to sell copies of these publications through their own employees. Single publications can be presented, free of charge, in a common exhibition. Please send copies for the exhibition ? with brochures and order forms - to the Congress Organizers before 10 October 2005. Completed order forms will be collected and sent back to the publisher. At the end of the conference the exhibition copies will be taken over by the institute responsible for the organisation of the book exhibition.

Deadline for the registration of papers and panels (including summary of

300 words): 31 May 2005
