On the sidebar navigation or below, please find an archive of EGO conferences past. For future EGO members, you will find the Call for Papers (CFP) of each past conference, which you can use as potential templates when constructing your own CFPs. In some cases, you will find more conference information than CFP alone, if that information has survived the perpetual onslaught of time. Unfortunately, the one conference that has not survived the serendipitous whims of temporality is 2005 (Fall): "Rethinking Canonicity."
