.The President convened the meeting at 9.50.1. The proposed agenda for the Board Meeting was approved.2. The Congress Secretary reported concerning his preparations for the Tenth Inter-national Congress of Coptic Studies, to be held in Rome in 2012. He proposed theweek of 17–22 September 2012, with the expectation that the Congress would beopened on the first day (Monday) in the Aula Magna of the University of Rome “LaSapienza,” but after that the sessions would be held in the Augustinianum (near Basilica San Pietro), where there is space for up to four simultaneous sessions and plenary sessions. The Board expressed its concern that with these dates there will betwo consecutive congresses being held in September, which is something that theBoard wants in principle to avoid. Since a date in September is unavoidable if theCongress is to be held in Rome, it means that the Congress in 2016 really must beheld around the beginning of the summer.All invited speakers have accepted the invitation to give plenary reports as agreedat the previous Board Meeting (see Minutes of the 25th Board Meeting, point 5). Inaddition to those reports, the Congress will comprise sections of short research pa- pers, as well as panels if anyone among the participants proposes to organize such.The possibility is being explored to hold several sessions toward the end of the Con-gress in the Vatican Library, where there might also be a special exhibition of Cop-tic manuscripts. The Congress Secretary will have the assistance of Tito Orlandi andPaola Buzi. The usual logistical matters concerning the organization of a Congresswere surveyed, for the information of the Congress Secretary and his collaborators.[The first announcement of the Congress appeared in IACS

. The previous Congress Secretary commu-nicated via email that he has received thus far only a small portion of the plenaryreports and papers that he had been expecting to have for the publication of the Con-gress Acts. The Board charged the President to encourage Dr. Boutros, now servingas editor of the Acts, to focus on assembling all the plenary reports by the end of thesummer and then to prepare a volume including those main papers together withwhatever other papers he has received up to that time.4. The Secretary reported on the IACS’s continued financial health as well as thestrength of its membership, currently close to 300 in number. He was duly reminded
