Open Access Conferences

Two great conferences have been placed online (free!) in their entirety:

UCL's Greek Literary Epigram: From the Hellenistic to the Early Byzantine Era

and The Warburg Institute and the Institute of Classical Studies' The Afterlife of Ovid

It's a fantastic feature of the Open Access movement that scholars across the world can now experience conferences they are unable to attend in person. It also allows students and other interested parties to remain at the forefront of research without having to spend large amounts of money on events which may well not be as relevant as hoped. Many thanks to the above contributors and feel free to link to more in the comments!
