The International Federation of Rock Art Organizations (IFRAO) will convene its International Rock Art Congress at the Marriott Pyramid Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico . IFRAO is a consortium of more than fifty international rock art research associations, who explore the many facets of rock art – the study of prehistoric human-made markings found on stone in natural landscape settings.  The local hosting organization is American Rock Art Research Association (ARARA).

The conference is open to all—professional archaeologists and interested avocationalists alike. In keeping with the international agenda established over the past years, the conference will offer four days of oral and poster presentations in sessions organized by topic, and Wednesday will be devoted to field trips for all attendees. Other special cultural events are planned throughout the week including evening lectures open to the public, dances by local Pueblo groups, social events and vendor offerings of rock art related merchandise. Opportunities to book extended field trips before and after the Congress will also be available. Official languages are English and Spanish.

 Call for Papers abstracts deadline is July 1, 2012. More information:
