I don't know much more than this. As more information comes my way about this event, I'll post on it. Right now, the proposed dates for the conference are May 15-17, 2008.
So 2008 is going to be a big year for Coptic studies, with three major conferences. This is highly unusual, but let's make hay while the sun shines. These are the dates for your calendars:
Codex Judas Congress, March 13-16, 2008, Rice University, Houston, Texas
Coptic Culture: Past, Present, and Future, May 15-17, 2008, Shepalbury Manor, Stevenage, UK
Ninth International Congress of Coptic Studies, September 14-20, 2008, Sonesta Hotel, Cairo
