The Office Universitaire d'Etudes Normandes (OUEN) of the University of Caen is planning to hold a conference at Cerisy-la-Salle in Normandy to mark the millennium of Lanfranc's birth in late September or early October 2010, lasting three and a half days. The principal themes of the conference will be (1) ecclesiastical structures, administration and jurisdiction, (2) religious communities (including the liturgy, monastic customs and the development of new forms of regular life at the turn of the eleventh and twelfth centuries) and (3) ecclesiastical involvement in secular affairs. We are hoping to attract papers on individual figures, especially bishops, both contemporary with Lanfranc and from the twelfth century.

We would like to invite proposals for papers to be accompanied by abstracts of no more than 300 words by 1 January 2009. The final choice of contributions for the programme will be made by the organisers (Veronique Gazeau, Julia Barrow and Fabrice Delivre). Papers should last no longer than 30 minutes and should be delivered in French; the organisers will assist with corrections. We intend to publish the conference proceedings.

Accommodation costs for speakers will be defrayed by OUEN and the Centre International de Cerisy-la-Salle, which may also be able to make a contribution towards travel expenses, but speakers will be encouraged to apply to other sources of funding for travel if possible.

We would like to encourage postgraduate students to attend the
