    Academic Forum Annual Conference

    3 & 4 October 2018, Athens, Greece

    In Search of Athenian Wisdom: The Academic Forum Conference moves to Greece

    Ancestral home of democracy; birthplace of law; City of Pallas Athena, goddess of wisdom, whose symbol is the owl: Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities and can claim some of the most iconic ancient ruins of Hellenic civilisation. This autumn, the Academic Forum conference moves to Greece for two days (3-4 October 2018) on the Saronic Gulf, inlet of the Aegean Sea and location of the famous battle of Salamis, one of the defining events of the Ancient World.
    For the academic symposium this year, the theme is “Party Autonomy and Third-Party Protection in Insolvency Law”. The idea is to trace the links between contract law, property law, company law as well as private international law and insolvency law. These closely related areas, which influence the discourse of insolvency and restructuring, are vital adjuncts to understanding the way insolvency interacts with other legal themes. The intention behind the meeting in Athens will be to provide the opportunity to challenge existing approaches, stimulate debate, and ask profound questions about a range of issues within these subject areas.
    At time of writing, responses to the Call for Papers, issued in January, have been coming in and are being fielded by the management board. The programme is being assembled and a full list of speakers will feature in the next edition of Eurofenix. Already though, the flavour of the offers to present in Athens is decidedly comparative. In addition, a number of proposals have been forthcoming from members of the Younger Academics Network of Insolvency Law, who also have their own dedicated session within the conference programme.
    The conference looks set to be an occasion to challenge ideas and preconceptions, to learn new things, to form friendships and working collaborations and, of course, to also enjoy Greek hospitality and to catch sight of its landscapes and monuments, redolent with history. Join us in Athens on this journey back in time to the fount of civilisation!
