66th/e Conference

Reception of Law

18–22 September 2012

The congress will begin on the afternoon of Tuesday, 18 September and end on Saturday morning 22 September. Excursions are offered for Saturday 22 September. As in 1993, the congress will take place for the most part at St Catherine’s College

The theme is ‘Reception of Law’. It is a wide theme, which covers, e.g., the reception of Assyrian law by the Mesopotamians, Greek law by Egyptians, Roman law by the Greeks in the 4 th and 5th century, by the Gallic population in the 6 th century, but also, as the name of our association implies (‘Histoire des droits de l’Antiquité’), the reception of Roman law after 1100, and I welcome particularly contributions concerning the reception of Roman law after 1100 in Europe, the ‘Civil Law’. Yet, as is the custom of our association, papers on other themes than the proposed are of course always welcome and appreciated, in one of the five accepted languages (French, English, German, Italian and Spanish).

    Assemblée générale

    St Catherine’s College, built in the 1960s, is a very stylish modern college which has about 200 rooms, all withen suite facilities (i.e., with own toilet and shower). We have chosen St Catherine’s College because it is the only College that can provide suitable accommodation to a Congress of the size of SIHDA. Participants can enjoy the charm of living in an Oxford college with the advantage of being close to the conference venue. The distance from the College to the Bodleian Library, Catte Street and Broad Street is about a ten-minute walk.

    {Due to administrative complexity, it is not possible to separate items from the registration fee;|Only 165 rooms available on the night of Saturday, 22 September (as of now); *There are a very limited number twin rooms available

    The packages provide, effectively, an attractive rate for a night, or a lower registration. 120 rooms in St Catherine’s College’s 185 rooms have presently been reserved for the Congress until 1 June 2012 (of which a limited number are twin bedrooms). It is standing practice in Oxford colleges to take bookings for rooms not reserved and so does St Catherine’s College. To avoid that by 1 June the remaining 65 rooms have been booked by other people and thus not available to the Congress should demand exceed 120, we strongly advise those who want to book a Package A, B, or C, to book at once to avoid disappointment. We cannot guarantee rooms beyond 120. Please note that for these packages accommodation will not be booked unless payment has been received in the Congress’ bank account. Should it happen that the advertised accommodation is no longer available, the organisers will try to find comparable lodging with another College. However we cannot guarantee anything and the participant would be expected to meet the cost of alternative College accommodation as it is likely to be greater than what is offered.

    Payment, by bank transfers, should be sent to: Professor A. Sirks, Lloyds TSB Bank, Sort Code: 30-96-35, Account No. 52509360; Swift/BIC: LOYDGB 21023; IBAN: GB91 LOYD 30 9635 5250 9360. The organisation cannot accept charges on transfers.

    Transfers should not incur any additional charges.

    The procedure with the bank has revealed that it is necessary that the reference contains the name of the remitter and the package he takes. So: please enter your name and chosen package as reference on the transfer slip.

    Participants are warmly encouraged to opt for packages that include accommodation with St Catherine’s College as it would greatly facilitate the organisation. Bookings for a shorter period in the College may be possible (priority, however, will be given to those booking one of the packages), please email for details.

    It is not possible to register through this website. For registration please contact the Fellows Secretary, at

    Since it is of interest for booking some information about the excursions. There will be several excursions planned for Saturday 22 September, and participants can choose. Whether an excursions will take place depends primarily on the number of people interested. Shirtly before the congress starts you all will receive extensive information. However, in order that you may better organise your visit, I give the main points now.
    • one excursion is planned for Waddesdon Manor, return about 3 pm.
    • one excursion is planned for Chastleton House and a Cotswold town, return about 4 pm.
    • one excursion is planned for Broughton Castle and Hidcote Gardens, return about 6.30 pm.
    • one excursion is planned for Cirencester and Buscot House, return about 6.30 pm.
    The places mentioined have websites. This information is provisional and without obligation.

    There are several ways to reach Oxford.
    • By car: from the London Orbital Road (the M25) you take at junction 16 the M 40 westwards to Oxford and Birmingham, and leave it at junction 8 for the A 40. Head after the roudabout on the A 420 for the centre of Oxford until you are on High Street, after Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights can go to the right into Long Wall Street, subsequently called St Cross Road, after which you turn right into Manor Street. At the end you will find St Catz. There is limited parking possibility at St Catz.
    • By railroad: take in London at Paddington Station the train to Oxford. Upon arrival it is best to take a cab to St Catz.
    • By plane: Although from almost all airports connections with Oxford exist, directly or by various transporters, the most convenient connection is The Airline, which operates regular services from Heathrow (Terminals 1, 2, 3 + Central Bus Station, Terminal 5) and Gatwick (North, bay 5, and South). See their website on for times, fares and duration of journey. A period return allows you a return within three months, and if you are over 60, you are entitled to a reduction (Seniors). The fare can be paid in the bus only in cash, but you can buy in internet. Leave the bus at the stop High Street/ Queens Lane, walk back and turn left at the lights into Long Wall Street, subsequently called St Cross Road, after which you turn right into Manor Street. At the end you will find St Catz. Or go to the terminal at Gloucester Green and take a cab.

    If you arrive at Heathrow 4: there is a good connection with Heathrow 5 where you can catch The Airline (I advise the bus)
    By bus: Free bus transfers are available between the terminals, taking 12 to 15 minutes.
    From Terminal 4 to Terminal 5: catch the 482 or 490 buses (destination Heathrow Terminal 5).
    From Terminal 5 to Terminal 4: catch the 482 (destination Southall) or the 490 (destination Richmond).
    By train: Free rail transfers are available using Heathrow Express (change at Heathrow Central – allow plenty of time for this connection). Please ensure you board the correct train, as Heathrow Express services also run non-stop to London Paddington.

    It is, of course, possible for participants to make their own arrangements for accommodation. The Congress organisation cannot undertake to book accommodation at venues outside of St Catherine’s College.

    ‘Begleitprogramm’ and excursions

    The Packages B and C do not include a programme for the accompanying person. A programme will be offered at the Congress. Information about excursions on Saturday, 22 September will be distributed nearer the time of the Congress.


    Prior to the Congress:
    It is possible to cancel your booking. For the cancellation of Packages A, B, and C, the refund will be 40% of the amount paid (depending on the number of booked rooms additional costs of cancel­lation may be deducted from this). We shall, of course, in such a case try to resell your accommodation, and if this is successful, a larger refund will be possible. For the cancellation of individual items, it will be possible to let you have a full refund if notice is given two weeks prior to the start of the Conference, 18 September 2012.

    Refunds, if applicable, will not be made till after the Congress has ended.

    After start of Congress:
    There can be no refunding of meals not taken. Once the conference is running, participants who have booked accommodation and meals but who do not arrive (in time) will be charged as if present.

    If an excursion is cancelled due to insufficient interest, a full refund will be provided after the Congress has ended.
