Digital Resources for Teaching Neo-Latin

Dear members of the IANLS,

As announced during the last congress in Leuven, the newly formed IANLS Committee for Teaching of Neo-Latin wishes to collect digitally available teaching material and resources on the new IANLS website in order to promote and inspire the teaching of Neo-Latin and to help teachers (in schools and at Universities) who might have less experience with the field.

For this we need your help: We are inviting you to send us links to digitally available teaching material (ideally open access) that we can publish on the website. This could include annotated texts; didactic toolkits or didactic ideas; instruction videos; or other kind of material useful for teaching. (Note that some more general digital resources, like for example Johann Ramminger’s Neulateinische Wortliste, are already on the IANLS website under the tab of the Committee for Digital Resources).

If you are willing to share your own material or know of interesting sites that contains didactic material, please email the link to Christoph Pieper ( and to Ivan Lábaj ( [please copy both in your message!]. It would be very helpful if you could add 3–4 descriptive sentences about the content of the material/about what to be found on the site.

We are looking forward to receiving your suggestions!
Best wishes, in the name of the whole committee,
Christoph Pieper

Digital@IANLS Wikidata workshop

Online, 10/02/2023 and 24/02/2023

The Committee for Digital Resources will launch a new series of events digital@IANLS as a way to advance the use of digital technology among the members of the Neo-Latin research community by introducing digitalisation projects, demonstrating the use of digital tools and promoting best practice in employment of information technology for Neo-Latin research.

The events will be held online, their frequency will depend on the availability of speakers and topics, and the format will not be strictly defined (e. g., workshops, lectures, roundtable discussions and presentations are all possible). All members of the IANLS are encouraged not only to attend as speakers, but also to get in contact with the Committee in order to present their own digital projects or to suggest a speaker or a topic.

Please find the information and call for the first workshops HERE.

For more information on the event do not hesitate to get in touch with Alexander Winkler (

Subscribe to the new newsletter

Dear members of the IANLS,

During the business meeting at the congress in Leuven this August, I had the great honour of being elected as the new webmaster of IANLS, succeeding Johann Ramminger who had held this position for many years.

In the last few weeks I have tried to redesign the homepage of IANLS and give it a more modern design.

As part of this redesign, the newsletter has also been changed to a new system. To continue receiving all the news and updates from the world of IANLS, I kindly ask you to subscribe to the new newsletter HERE.

Submission to the Acta Conventus Neolatini Lovaniensis 2022

Dear participants of the IANLS congress,

A few weeks ago, we had a wonderful IANLS congress in Leuven, and the local organisers did a great job for all of us. Now, it is time to think about the publication of the proceedings. For general information about the Acta Conventus Neo-Latini, see: Publication of the Acta.

If you want to publish your paper in the Acta Conventus Neo-Latini, please, have a look at the style sheet and send your article (max. 28,000 characters, including spaces and footnotes) by 30 November 2022 to:

Remember that only participants who presented their paper personally at the congress, are allowed to publish it in the Acta.

After a formal check of your submission, we will send it to at least two peer reviewers, and we will let you know about their comments and reviews as soon as we get them. In the end, we will only be able to publish a selection of c. 50–60 papers.

If you have any further questions, please, write to Florian Schaffenrath. I am looking forward to receiving your submission, and together with Dirk Sacré, I will do my best to publish the volume in due time.

All the best,
