Our Guidelines for the ICE 13 Proceedings are based on the rules for short communications in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology and reiterate a few important points from these rules. Please note that the JEA guidelines were last updated in November 2023; the document is available for download from the EES website (button “JEA Style Guide”).

Transliterations and transcriptions of ancient Egyptian words and texts should follow the Leiden Unified Transliteration System, as adopted at the IAE General Assembly held at the end of the congress. We prefer all transliterated text to be without capitals.

Use the standard transliteration font Trlit_CG Times for transliterations/transcriptions, and the Coptic_Normal font for Coptic text – the latter two can be downloaded from the Online Egyptological Bibliography website. There is now an updated version (2023) of the Trlit_CG Times font. If you prefer to work with Unicode instead of any specific font, please convert your transliterated text into Unicode by using the Transliteration to Unicode Converter (recently updated version). You can copy and paste the Unicode converted result in the text document of your contribution before submitting it to us.

All hieroglyphic texts should be created in JSesh (free software download) and embedded into the text as images.

Use Egyptological standard abbreviations for journals and series, as listed on the Egyptologists’ Electronic Forum (EEF).
