The Izmir Center of the Archaeology of Western Anatolia (EKVAM) is glad to inform you that an international symposium on the ancient region of Cappadocia in southeastern part of central Turkey will take place on May 14-15, 2020 at the Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) in Izmir, Turkey. Today Cappadocia covers Turkish provinces of Nevsehir, Kayseri, Kirsehir, Aksaray and Nigde as well as minor parts of Sivas and Kahramanmaras.

We warmly invite contributions by scholars and graduate students from a variety of disciplines related to this region. Intended to bring together scholars of archaeology, history, historical geography, epigraphy and other related disciplines in ancient Anatolian studies to discuss a range of issues concerning this region’s archaeology and history, this symposium should be an excellent opportunity to increase our knowledge about this region.

On these themes and questions, all approaches and methods susceptible to bring some progress to our current knowledge are of course welcome: archaeology, ancient history, historical geography, epigraphy, numismatic, history of art, cultural anthropology etc. English is the official language of the symposium. The symposium is free of charge. A post-symposium excursion is planned on May 16-19 to Rhodes, Greece through Marmaris.
