NASTA Update #6: Hopin Registration, Kleos CfP and more!

Now that we have informed everyone who submitted a paper whether their abstract was accepted or not, we’re moving into the final stages of conference preparation. In this conference update, we’d like to talk about how you can officially register for the conference, bring your attention to the Kleos Call for Papers, and more!


If you’d like to attend the NASTA conference on 29 April, you can now finish your registration on the Hopin conference platform. You can either do so by clicking the big “Register Now!” button at the top of the website, or by clicking here.

We chose Hopin because we feel that this conference platform is quite intuitive, and it offers a proper conference ‘feel’ in an online space. We’ll be providing automated closed captions for each session and lecture by integrating Google Meet, and you’ll be able to ask questions to every presenter and speaker through the Hopin chat!

Kleos Call for Papers

As you know, we are collaborating with Kleos Bulletin on a conference proceedings to be published as part of Kleos issue 5, to be published in April/May 2022. Kleos is a peer-reviewed, open access academic online journal founded in 2014. They publish current research and review articles by graduate and PhD students, as well as starting independent researchers, from the fields of archaeology and ancient studies (i.e. classics and ancient history).

Kleos recently opened their own Call for Papers. If you didn’t want to present a paper at NASTA, but would like the chance to publish a paper on the subject of narrative and storytelling, you can submit your abstract to Kleos for review by April 30th. For more information, please refer to the CfP flyer on the right, or click here for the Kleos website.

Programme and Abstract Books

We’ll be sharing the programme book and abstract book with everyone soon. They’ll be free to download from our website and will include all relevant information, including some post-conference sneak peeks!

We’re just a little over 20 days away from the conference! If you have any questions or concerns, you can always send an email to, contact us via any of our social media platforms, or simply fill in the contact form, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. See you on the 29th!
