Important Announcement: The submission deadline for the upcoming 2021 Meeting has been extended to Wednesday, August 26th and the late fee has been waived. Please submit your workshop or open session proposal as soon as possible.

Based on member feedback, AIA and SCS have decided that it would be best to spread our virtual meeting over six days from January 5 -10, 2021. We plan on opening registration in early October. Registration rates have been finalized. We have begun work on a schedule and appreciate your patience as we continue to work on the logistics and program.

As previously announced, due to the COVD-19 pandemic the 2021 Joint Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) will be a virtual event. Please read the full announcement on the decision to go virtual here.

The submission system for the 2021 Meeting is now live. The Program Committee encourages submissions exploring artifacts, art, social systems, fashion, cooking vessels, trade networks, shipwrecks, architecture, inscriptions, and archaeological research methods of all areas. We recommend reviewing the Call for Papers prior to submitting. All submissions must be made through the online forms.
