The event was attended by noted writers and scholars such as Houshang Moradi Kermani

, Noush-Afarin Ansari
, Mir Jalal al-Din Kazzazi

During the ceremony, the eminent historian and university lecturer, Mansoureh Ettehadieh

Elsewhere in her remarks, she expressed her pleasure by saying that after 60 years, it seems like the dream of writing the Iranian history by Iranians have come true and many Iranians, both inside and outside the country, have compiled valuable books about the history and culture of Iran, although we still have a long way to go in the long run to recognize this frontier in a scientific way.
