The congress covers three days.
On Tuesday January 5th the congress will be opened in the National Museum of Antiquities (RMO). The registration of attendants will be followed by a keynote lecture by Dr. R.J. Demarée. Dr. Demarée is lecturer at the department of Egyptology and distinguished researcher on Deir el-Medina, the village inhabited by the workmen responsible for the construction of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings at Thebes. The so-called Taffeh-hall of the museum, complete with Egyptian Temple, will create the perfect ambiance for this opening keynote speech. Following the lecture, there will be an opportunity to see the museum's Egyptian antiquities. At the end of the day, attendees are invited for drinks in the Taffeh-hall.
During the following three days the conference proper will take place. All lectures will be held in the Lipsius building of Leiden University (Witte Singel- Doelencomplex).
For the first day, Wednesday 6th January, 11 lectures are scheduled, divided into four thematic sessions. The day will be closed with a keynote lecture by Dr. M.J. Versluys, lecturer at the Faculty of Archaeology of Leiden University.
During the second day of the congress, Thursday January 7th, the lectures will be divided into two parallel sessions. For these parallel sessions, two smaller lecture halls in the Lipsius building are being reserved. This timetable thus offers a capacity of 24 lectures. The day will be closed by a keynote lecture of Dr. B.J.J. Haring, lecturer at the department of Egyptology.
Later that evening, the congress dinner will take place at restaurant 'De Branderij' in Leiden.
On the last day, Friday 8th January, 12 lectures are divided into 4 thematic sessions. The day will be concluded with the annual general meeting (AGM). Amongst other things, the winner of the CRE logo contest will be announced and the host for the 12th edition of CRE will be elected.
