Since the dawn of history relations based on exchange of goods and services remain a binding agent of human societies. Various forms of payment existed long before money and still function parallelly to the monetary economy. A holistic approach to the economic, social and cultural significance of money and others means of payment is the key to understanding the past and the surrounding reality.

The organizers of the conference wish to examine means of payment since antiquity up to modern times, aiming to encompass all possible aspects of the matter at hand. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the conference we encourage participation of representatives of broadly understood social and humanistic sciences and also all those, whose research remains relevant to the topic.
