Australian Archaeological Association Conference

1 – 3 December 2021



Call for Sessions

Submissions are now being accepted for proposed sessions. The Committee encourages session proposals linked to the Conference Theme, particularly those that explore the reconciliation theme, especially through collaborative projects and truth-telling. Sessions that clearly relate to the Conference Theme will be prioritised for acceptance in the event of over-subscription.

Session organisers should provide a title and brief abstract (up to 200 words) of the proposed session(s), with an estimate of the number of individual paper spots requested. All individual sessions will run for 2 hours and include 6 presentations. All papers will be strictly 20 minutes in duration (15 mins speaking + 5 mins question time). Speakers may only present one paper during the conference, although they may be co-authors on other papers.

Submissions will close 19 April 2021. Conference Sessions will be announced with the Call for Abstracts opening 14 May 2021.

Presentation Protocols

Delegates and Session Organisers 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 Session Organisers and paper 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 paper is accepted into a session and subsequently presented at the conference, as either a spoken paper or poster. 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.

All session conveners and presenters (oral or poster) are required to be members of the Association (unless an exemption is made by AAA). Click here to become a member.
