Call for papers – Ripam 10.5. & EMUNI Conference 2024

The ancient Mediterranean civilizations have long captivated scholars and enthusiasts alike with their remarkable engineering feats, particularly in the realm of water management. From the aqueducts of Rome to the cisterns of Crete, these systems formed the backbone of societies, shaping culture, commerce, and even warfare. As we delve deeper into understanding the intricate workings of these ancient water systems, we uncover not only technological brilliance but also insights into the socio-political, economic, and environmental dynamics of antiquity.

The International Conference on Ancient Water Systems in the Mediterranean Region invites researchers, scholars, archaeologists, historians, engineers, and enthusiasts to contribute their insights and findings to a multidisciplinary exploration of these vital lifelines of ancient civilizations. This conference aims to foster dialogue, exchange knowledge, and advance our understanding of ancient water management practices across the Mediterranean basin.

The Euro-mediterranean University EMUNI, located in Piran, ancient coastal mediterranean city, will have the honour of hosting joint event of the sixteenth EMUNI Conference and Ripam 10.5 intermediate conference “International Meeting on Mediterranean Architectural Heritage” from October 10 to 11, 2024.

The main objective of this international event is to exchange between national and international experts and to deepen discussions on issues of preservation of ancient Mediterranean water systems in general, and learn a valuable lessons in water conservation, management in particular.

The conference will be co-organised by Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica SperimentaleOGS (i.e. National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics) and the Union for the MediterraneanUfM.
