The Colloquium Studiorum Byzantinorum (Colloquium in Byzantine Studies, CBS) runs each term under the aegis of the Interdepartmental Postgraduate Programme in Byzantine Studies, organised jointly by the Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies and the Department of History and Archaeology at the University of Cyprus. It serves as a podium for members of the University of Cyprus academic staff, scholars and researchers in other institutions as well as the programme's postgraduate students to give talks on subjects directly or indirectly concerned with Byzantine culture and the medieval world. All lectures are delivered on Wednesdays, at the University of Cyprus Central (Old) Campus (75, Kallipoleos Av.), in Room Α106 at 7.30 pm, and last approx. 90 minutes, including discussion.
