CRE Permanent Committee

Current Research in Egyptology is organised in a democratic fashion. Any university wishing to host the conference can submit a proposal and a presentation during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in any particular year. At the end of the presentations, the vote of the assembly decides the winner. A committee representing the successful university arranges the following conference, while a permanent committee provides assistance and works on the long-term issues related to the conference. In order to allow a wider involvement of students in the CRE organisation, each member can remain in the permanent committee for a total of two years.
