We already have a very distinguished group of presenters lined up. Headliners include:

Alexander Mikaberidze, author of The Napoleonic Wars: A Global History. Professor of History and Curator, the James Smith Noel Collection, Louisiana State University in Shreveport, LA, USA
Since the basic theme of this congress relates to the bicentennial of Napoleon’s death, on August 15th we will have two very special presentations related to Napoleon’s time on St Helena, his death, and his legend/legacy.
Luke Dalla Bona, is a Canadian archaeologist who has a long association with the Muséo Napoleonico in Havana, Cuba, and is producing a magnificent catalogue of its collection. He will show and discuss items from that museum that were with Napoleon during his exile on St Helena. Luke lives and does archaeological work in Puerto López, Ecuador.
J. David Markham, President of the INS who has organized two Napoleonic conferences at the museum in Havana and has written a forward for Luke’s book, is also known for his very large collection, The David Markham Collection, which has been featured in several museum exhibitions. David will show and discuss items from his collection that reflect what people of the time had to remind them of Napoleon’s fate and legend.
We are pleased to have an all-star lineup to further enhance the program. We are very happy to have accepted excellent paper proposals from Derek Byrne of Ireland, Glenda Pérez of Spain, Jonas De Neef, Alasdair White and Bill Chew of Belgium, Matej Čapo of Slovakia, Allon Klebanoff of Israel and Wayne Hanley and Mike DeFeudis of the USA.
We would love to add your name to this list!
