10th International Conference of Hittitology comes to Chicago

In September 2014, at the 9th International Conference of Hittitology in Çorum, it was decided that the 10th conference will be held in Chicago. The International Conference of Hittitology is held every three years, which means that we will be able to welcome Hittitologists from all over the world in Chicago in 2017.

The conference alternates between the city of Çorum, capital of the province that is home to the former ancient Hittite capital Ḫattuša, and some other destination. Former hosts outside of Turkey have been Pavia (1993) and Rome (2005) in Italy, Würzburg in Germany (1999), and Warsaw in Poland (2011).
