CIRCULAR III

 

I. Abstracts:

The abstracts committee (Jacek Mydla and Anne Mydla) have screened all the abstracts submitted and have decided upon acceptance of papers for the conference. These decisions have been communicated to participants in individual letters sent through electronic post. We are preparing a booklet of abstracts which we will have printed for the conference.

 

II. Program of the conference (outline):

20   June (Monday)

- The morning: a short tour of Conrad’s footprints in Lublin (by coach). The opening session of the conference (including the opening plenary lecture). Registration of participants.

- The afternoon, 3 p.m.: Paper presentations and discussions (in two parallel sessions).

   The sessions will be held in the new building of The School of Humanities (Nowa Humanistyka) of Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (address: Pl. Marii Curie-Skłodowskiej 4a, Lublin 20-031).

21 June (Tuesday)

- The morning, 9 a.m.: Paper presentations and discussions (in two parallel sessions).

- The afternoon: a tour of Conrad’s footprints in Lublin and its environs. Conference dinner.

22   June (Wednesday), 23 June (Thursday)

Paper presentations and discussions (in two parallel sessions) starting from 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. respectively.

23   June (Friday)

- 9 a.m.: Paper presentations and discussions (in two parallel sessions). The closing plenary session and closing of the conference.

After lunch we will start our optional post-conference study tour of Conrad’s Polish footprints (for those who register for it and pay the tour transportation fee).

The sessions will be held in person only (as opposed to online or hybrid). All papers read in the conference in their first versions (and only those) are eligible for submission to post-conference publication.

III. Transportation to and from Lublin. We recommend:

1. A flight to Lublin airport. It has direct connections with the following airports: Doncaster Sheffield DSA (Wizz Air), Dublin DUB (Ryanair), Eindhoven EIN (Wizz Air),  London Luton LTN (Wizz Air), Oslo Torp Sandefjord TRF (Wizz Air), Warsaw (WAW) LOT, Gdańsk GDN (LOT). For the timetable of flights please see http://www.airport.lublin.pl/en

As you see, if you take a LOT flight to Warsaw or Gdańsk you can get a LOT connection to Lublin from there.

Upon your arrival at the Lublin airport please take a shuttle train to Lublin main railway station (Dworzec Główny) and from there take a taxi to your hotel. From the airport you can reach your hotel also by taxi, but this is expensive.

2. A flight to Warsaw F. Chopin Airport (Okęcie) or Warsaw Modlin Airport. (There is a shuttle train between these airports which goes through the centre of Warsaw.) From Warsaw F. Chopin Airport or Modlin Airport either

a/ Take a shuttle train or taxi (expensive) to Warsaw Central Railway Station (Warszawa Centralna) and from there take a train to Lublin. Trains to Lublin leave approximately every second hour and the journey takes about 2 hours. Upon your arrival in Lublin take a taxi to your hotel.

or b/ Take a coach to Lublin. Upon arrival in Lublin bus station take a taxi to your hotel.

In both these cases please contact airport information services for precise travel information.

We do not advise to take a taxi from Warsaw-Okęcie or Modlin airport to Lublin as this is extremely expensive.

Lublin may be reached by trains and buses also from other Polish towns which have international airports (Kraków, Katowice, Wrocław, Poznań, Rzeszów).

   IV. Accommodation for the conference:

Conference participants are requested to arrange their hotel accommodations in Lublin for the time of the conference (the nights of 19/20, 20/21, 21/22, 22/23 and 23/24 June 2022). They are entirely responsible for making their own hotel reservations in Lublin, paying for them, and for joining the conference group.
