It is with regret that we announce the postponement of the conference "East Meets West: the Rise of Parthia". The conference was scheduled to take place at the beginning of April, but in the current international situation it had become clear that it was no longer possible to bring together the full range of international speakers lined up at this time. While this is disappointing for all concerned, it can be appreciated that these circumstances are beyond our control. The conference has been rescheduled for January 15th-17th 2021.
