The general theme is "The Tradition of the New Testament: Treasures New and Old".
Proposals are invited for papers of around 20 minutes. (It may also be possible to accommodate longer presentations.) Suggestions for workshops, presenting work in progress, are also welcome. Titles and short abstracts should be sent by e mail to Hugh Houghton by the end of December 2012 (all submissions will be acknowledged).
A provisional programme and booking form will be made available in early 2013.
