All presenters at the biennial conference are invited to submit their paper for publication in the Proceedings of the Biennial Conference of Greek Studies. The papers are sent to an external peer-reviewer who has had no connection at all with the conference, and if this person and the co-editors agree that the paper has sufficient scholarly merit, it is included in the Proceedings. Traditionally, most papers reflect the Greek research being carried out in Australia, but the next Proceedings, of the 2005 conference, will have a stronger international input as there were many participants from Europe and elsewhere. Papers may be offered in Greek or in English, and as the areas covered at each conference vary greatly, they are grouped in whatever way seems most appropriate. Thus in the volume published in 2005 (the Proceedings of the 2003 conference) the section headings for the papers in English are:
Classical Greek Philosophy; Aspects of Greek Culture Past and Present; Contemporary History: Greeks and Cypriots at Home and Abroad; and Modern Greek Language and Culture in Australian Schools.
The section headings of the papers in Greek are: Linguistics, Modern Greek Literature, Education and History.
The aim of the editors is to produce a valuable scholarly collection of papers which are a genuine addition to their field. Past Proceedings have, we believe, provided a fascinating glimpse of the work which is being undertaken in many areas of Greek studies, and encouraged other researchers to embark on similar projects.
