The Egypt Exploration Society Congress

The Egypt Exploration Society Congress (formerly the British Egyptology Congress) provides a platform for international researchers to present their ongoing projects and discoveries to a broad audience of peers and the interested public through presentations or posters.

Presentations can be given by scholars at all levels of their career including independent researchers with no current affiliation. Presenters do not need to be British or be based in Britain to present.

The Congress is held by the Egypt Exploration Society every two years in collaboration with a British host institution. Applications to host EESCon will be advertised on the EES website in the intervening years immediately following a Congress.

In 2022, the sixth EES Congress will be hosted by Swansea University and the Egypt Centre (hence the choice of banner image). It is currently expected that the Congress will be held across a mix of online and hybrid events in September 2022.

The Egypt Exploration Society is delighted to be partnering with Swansea University and the Egypt Centre to organise the sixth EES Congress (formerly the British Egyptology Congress, BEC) in September 2022.
