AAA2020 Virtual Conference Banner 7 - 10 Dec

Call for Posters

We welcome poster presentations that address the conference theme of isolation. As we emerge from the greatest crisis of our time, we are reminded of other crises faced in times past. Too often the voices of those most closely affected by upheaval are silenced. For this conference we challenge participants to reflect on past events that have silenced many (including Indigenous people, women, the poor or the incarcerated), denying the voices of those from below. How can we balance the range of isolated voices to encourage collaborative narratives of what is important archaeology, sensu lata, in 2020?

Posters will be shared on the conference website and will include a comment section for Q&A. Presenters should note that posters will be viewable by the public, presenting an opportunity to engage with a broader audience. Posters will be ‘live’ from Monday 7 December for the duration of the conference, and presenters can opt to have their poster removed from the website at the end of the conference if they wish.

Posters should be prepared to a maximum file size of 10mb. As posters will be viewed on computer screens, we suggest preparing the file to be read as A4 size. PDF copies must be provided to the organisers by Monday 30 November.

To submit an abstract for a poster, please include:

  • Presenter name, affiliation and contact details (and any co-authors).
  • An abstract title and abstract (max. 300 words)

Poster Presenters are required to be members of the Association. Click here to become a member.

Please note that an individual may be the principal author and present only ONE poster as part of the virtual conference, although they can be subsidiary co-authors on any number of other posters.

Presenter Protocol

Poster Presenters are reminded of the Association’s Code of Ethics regarding protocols for the presentation of any data and/or interpretations of data that relate to Indigenous culture. These protocols require all Presenters to ensure that full prior and informed consent to collect, record, and present data and interpretations relating to Indigenous cultural materials is obtained from Indigenous collaborators and/or owners of data before any presentation is accepted and subsequently presented at the virtual conference. We take this opportunity to reiterate that breaches of the Association’s Code of Ethics can result in the expulsion of members under section 32 of the Constitution.
