Annual Meeting

The 2023 Annual Meeting is currently scheduled to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from January 5-8. Based on member and past attendee feedback, AIA and SCS are planning for in person and virtual participation options at the 2023 annual meeting. However, the detailed structure and format of the conference, along with registration categories and rates, are still under consideration. Updated information will be posted as it becomes available

2023 Call For Papers

For the 2023 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, the Program for the Annual Meeting Committee especially encourages the submission of organized sessions, papers, or posters that bring the archaeology of the Mediterranean world into conversation with that of the Americas and other regions. These sessions will be highlighted in the program with the header, “Archaeologies in Dialogue: Thinking Across Boundaries.” We also welcome sessions restricted to a specific region or time-period and hope that these will continue to be prominently represented in the meeting program.
