The presentation of candidacies and the announcement of Odysseus 2021 will be made during the conference dinner on Thursday June 7. The original session on Odysseus 2021 will not be held on Tuesday afternoon  and we will leave for the excursion to Barumini after the lunch. Please note that there is not sufficient time to go back to your hotel after the lunch. The meeting point for the excursion is in front of the conference venue 2:20 p.m.  (even for accompanying persons). Next, we will walk to viale Buon Cammino to take the bus at 2:30 (hopefully). Please, be on time. The visit in Barumini will start at 4:00 p.m.

A conference app is available. It is called Odysseus 2018 and can be downloaded from Apple Store and Play Store. The app can be used to read and download the conference program and the book of abstracts.

See you very soon :-):-)

The registration desk will open on Sunday June 3 at 4:00 p.m. in the Green Room of the Conference Venue (Cittadella dei Musei, Piazza Arsenale 1, Cagliari), which is in front of the Archaeological Museum.

You are advised to visit (for free) the Archaeological Museum. Two guides will introduce (in Italian and English) the old history of Sardinia to groups of about 30 persons attending Odysseus 2018 since 4:30 pm. The guided tour takes about one hour.

The welcome buffet will start at 7:30 pm.

Last but not least, you should arrive at the conference venue by 8:00 p.m, because the entrance is not allowed after this time for safety reasons.

It is the time to start thinking about the next Odysseus conference. It will take place in 2021 and, as imagined initially, it will take place somewhere within the Homeric territory. Well, “Homeric” in a very broad sense, from the Black Sea (Pontus Euxinus) to Morocco and the isles in the Atlantic in front of Spain, Portugal and Morocco where, so one legend says, the Garden of the Hesperides once was. 🙂

We call upon you for proposals for Odysseus 2021. Group some friends, find a good location, and make a proposal to the participants. The proposal will be presented on Tuesday afternoon. We will then all vote, probably during the conference dinner, to chose. Please let us know that you intend to make a proposal by emailing Theo or Massimo:

Teodor Gabriel Crainic,
