Held in historic Regis High School, the program includes lectures on various aspects of Latin language and pedagogy and smaller sessions in which participants practice speaking Latin themselves. The conference also offers optional spoken Ancient Greek sessions and lectures. Daily coffee hours and one optional group dinner allow for informal contact and exchange with other participants.
