The Byzantine Studies Conference was founded in 1975 (read a short history of the BSC). It is a venue for the presentation and discussion of papers embodying current research on all aspects of Byzantine history and culture. The BSC meets in October or November in a different city every year. Approximately 75 papers are presented and discussed in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. Graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend and may compete for prizes for the best papers. The BSC is also the occasion for the annual BSANA business meeting. BSANA is incorporated in the state of Florida.
