In 1962, Armand Abel started to organize the "Days", an annual meeting that brings together members to discuss pointed themes concerning Orientalism. The Journal Acta Orientalia Belgica publishes all the communications. The S.R.B.É.O./K.B.G.O.S. welcomes researchers specialized in various disciplines related to Orientalism: Egyptology, Assyriology, Biblical studies, Islamology, Indianology, Far-Eastern studies, Slavistic, etc. The S.R.B.É.O./K.B.G.O.S. is also open to amateurs with deep interest and passion for the Orient, both ancient and modern. Its activities are therefore learning, multi-disciplinary and is geared toward the large cultivated public.
