The conference is supported by a grant PPN/PRO/2020/1/00009/U/00001 of the NAWA Chair 2020 Programme “From the Achaemenids to the Romans: Contextualizing empire and its longue-durée developments” and by a grant from the National Science Centre (Poland) 2021/01/1/HS3/00006.

20 lectures by researchers from all around the globe deal with different "short-term empires". The broad spectrum includes empires of the Graeco-Roman world as well as China in the 3rd century BC up until South America in the 19th century AD.
