The Center for Human Evolutionary Studies (CHES) at Rutgers University would like to invite you to an international workshop called Frontiers in Archaeological Sciences to be held October 23-25, 2017, at the Rutgers campus in New Brunswick, New Jersey. This will be an exciting opportunity to explore new techniques and methods in the archaeological sciences and to hear about all of the revolutionary work taking place at the intersection of the "hard sciences" and archaeology. Our featured speakers are pushing the boundaries of what was once thought to be scientifically possible in their investigations of fire, diet, and ancient and environmental DNA in the archaeological record, and we are looking forward to hearing about their latest work.
We are currently accepting presentation and poster submissions, and especially want to encourage submissions from junior researchers and underrepresented groups in science. Podium presentations will be 20 minutes in length and we will prioritize those submitting podium presentations over poster presentations in terms of registration, as space is limited to 40 attendees. Presentations will be selected based on their originality, scientific merit, and fit with the rest of the program, as well as with an eye toward broadening participation from underrepresented groups.
