A sub-committee of the Resource Center for Medieval Slavic Studies (RCMSS) Advisory Council will review all submissions. Further details will be announced in the next issue of Cyrillic Manuscript Heritage (CMH) and through this blog, various listservs, and other venues.

The conference will follow immediately after the conclusion of the 2013 Medieval Slavic Summer Institute (MSSI), which is scheduled for June 24-July 19. We look forward to introducing participants and guests to the recently renovated Thompson Library, the Jack and Jan Creighton Special Collections Reading Room, and the enhanced research, teaching, and preservation opportunities now at the disposal of the HRL.
