Dear Reader,

in 2005, the 48th Meeting of the Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC) was held near Moscow, the first time to take place in Russia proper. Before that, one meeting of the PIAC had been held in the USSR, it was the 29th Meeting which took place in Tashkent in 1986.

The list of participants and the programme of the 48th Meeting are available now.

Previous Meetings: 39th Meeting Szeged, 1996

Dear Reader,

for the 39th Annual Meeting of the Permanent International Conference (PIAC) held in June 1996 in Szeged, Hungary, the list of participants and the programme are now available. That meeting had a fairly large number of participants (in the proximity of 100), a considerable number of them first-time participants; it is always important that the PIAC welcomes the next generation of scholars.

Previous Meetings: 42nd Meeting, Prague 1999

Dear Reader,

The the discovery of archival materials always offers a fortunate opportunity to fill in blank spots in the history of the Permanent International Altaistic Conference (PIAC). This is even more important in cases where no proceedings volume was ever produced.

For the 42nd Meeting of the PIAC held in Prague in 1999 hosted under the auspices of RFE/RL, the following materials are now available in addition to the existing article by Bruce Pannier:

As always, curating the PIAC archive relies on contributions from the PIAC community. Thus, in case you participated in that meeting but do not find your name in the aforementioned materials, please let me know and everything will be duly updated.
