The aim of this conference is to bring together teachers, students, and scientists to develop new roles and ideas of teaching and studying, with special regard to the use of electronic media. Dante's work and its reception will be viewed under interdisciplinary and intercultural aspects, including religion, philosophy, literature, history, science, mathematics and astronomy. The conference will be divided into two separate parts: lectures and discussions in the mornings and workshops in the afternoons, the latter including a demonstration of new computer possibilities in translation using Italian, English, Russian and Bulgarian versions of the Divine Comedy.

The proceedings of the conference will be published and we would welcome any contributions.

The participation prices are USD 50 till the 30th of August and USD 60 thereafter.

Accomodation: there are appartments available in the Institute (cost: 10 USD), or rooms in several small but clean hotels in the area with prices of around USD 50. There are also adequate resturants and eating places in the Academy and nearby.
