Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For the 2018 Helsinki meeting we invite proposals exploring various aspects of the Septuagint historical books. All proposals relating to the issues outlined in the program are warmly welcome. We would especially like to encourage proposals on the books of 1 and 2 Samuel and their Greek revision history. Your proposal can be a traditional conference presentation, but our workshop also offers the possibility to test and discuss ideas that are still works in progress, for example a draft paper outlining textual problems or findings.
