Dear Colleague,

Thank you for participating in the 3ICAANE and for contributing to its success. The preparation of the Proceedings is now underway. Many of you have confirmed their participation in this publication and quite a few have already sent their paper.

Our publisher will be Eisenbrauns : we could hardly find a publisher more competent and better used to distribute high quality publications among orientalists. We are considering two hardbound volumes in which the papers will be organized basically according to the thematic sessions and workshops in which they were presented during Congress.

Eisenbrauns is committed to have the proceedings of the 3rd Congress published in time for the 4th ICAANE in Berlin in the Spring of 2004, under the condition that the edited manuscripts are handed over to him in the Spring of 2003 at the latest. This entails for all of us a drastic timetable.

Therefore, we kindly asked you to submit your contribution not later than January 1, 2003.
If you already know that you will be unable to keep this deadline, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can plan the work of our copy editors during the coming months.

With many thanks for your kind cooperation,

Sincerely yours,


Jean-Claude Margueron
