On these themes and questions, all approaches and methods able 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 will take place at the Blue Hall of DESEM in the Chancellery Building of DEU. A local archaeological journal is planned as a special issue containing the symposium’s abstracts which will also be made available on the website. The proceedings of the symposium will be published in 2017. The symposium is free of charge. We will make the required hotel reservations as soon as we know the exact number of participants. The approximate cost for the accommodation per night + breakfast will be 20 €. A post-symposium excursion is planned on May 19-21 to Chios, Greece through Izmir-Çeşme. For the participants who cannot travel to Izmir, we will arrange a video-conference facility through Skype. There are several low-cost flight companies (Pegasus, Sunexpress, Onur Air, Easyjet, Eurowings etc.) that operate direct flights to Izmir from several locations. The symposium’s program will be regulating for those who are also planning to participate in the symposium in Thessaloniki, Greece, entitled “Classical Pottery of the Northern Aegean and its Periphery “ which will take place on the same date with the Lydia Symposium, i.e. May 17-20, 2017. We would be delighted, if you could consider contributing to our symposium and contact us with the required information below before January 1, 2017.
