Due to pandemic restrictions the CSPS/ACÉP Executive has decided to meet under the auspices of Congress within a virtual environment. As an Executive, we felt that the Congress structure offered the best and most efficient format and platform for our meeting. Also, when signing up for Congress ( means accessing all of the benefits of the larger conference. The CSPS/ACÉP Executive is working hard alongside the Federation to make this a memorable and worthwhile conference.

We have decided to hold our annual meeting over three consecutive days (May 30, 31, June 1) with online synchronous activities. We hope that you will consider booking these days “off” to attend. We will likely concentrate our time together in the middle of the day (Eastern Standard Time), but we are willing to make adjustments to accommodate timing for presenters who live in different time zones. We also hope to allow for maximum participation and involvement by offering activities and space for those aspects of gathering at a conference that are important to our members: presenting research, connecting with one another socially, networking, conducting Society business, and sharing our resources and ideas.

We look forward to your paper proposals (see [link] or details). Although the format will be different this year, this will be an excellent opportunity to share your research and receive feedback from your peers.

Students, please consider submitting an essay for our Student Essay Contest (in English ou en francais). If you are a professor and know of a student who has written a worthy essay in the area of Patristics, please encourage them to submit for the contest.

Thank you for your continued interest in the CSPS/ACÉP. At any time, if you have suggestions, comments or questions about our Society or our annual meeting, please get in touch with me or any other member of the Executive.
