ISNS 2023

20th annual conference of the

International Society for Neoplatonic Studies

Catania, Italy

June14-17, 2023

Dear ISNS Colleagues,

    I, together with the local organizing committee of Loredana Cardullo and Chiara Militello, am pleased to announce the call for panels for the 20th annual ISNS conference, to be held in Catania, Sicily on June 14-17, 2023, in conjunction with Università degli Studi di Catania.

    Anyone interested in organizing a panel at the conference should send a brief description of the panel along with its title and the name(s) and email address(es) of the contact person(s) to the review committee:

Chiara Militello <>

Concetto Martello <>

Julio Cesar Moreira <>

John Finamore <>

    Panel descriptions are due to us by November 14, 2022.  I will email the list of proposed panels to the ISNS membership shortly thereafter. Panel organizers are responsible for choosing and collecting abstracts for their panels. They should notify the conference organizers of their decisions by January 16, 2023.  Abstracts should be no more than one page, single spaced.

    We also welcome individual abstracts for papers that do not fall under any of the announced panels.  Please send those abstracts starting November 21 (again, one-page maximum) to the four members of the review committee, above.

    All abstracts, whether individual or for inclusion in panels, are due by January 16, 2023. Papers may be presented in English, Portuguese, French, German, Spanish, or Italian.  It is recommended that those delivering papers in languages other than English provide printed copies to their audience at the conference.

    Please note that anyone giving a paper at the conference must be a member of the ISNS. You may sign up and pay dues on the web site of the Philosophy Documentation Center:

Dues are $60.00 per year ($20.00 for students and retirees).   

    Participants may give only one paper at the conference and therefore should submit only one abstract.

    If you have any questions about the program, registration, or location of the conference, please email

    Questions about ISNS policies should be addressed to me at

    Chiara, Loredana, Julio, and I look forward to seeing you all at the June conference in Catania.
