The Chartered Institute for Archaeologists, the professional body for UK archaeologists, has put out a call for their annual conference:

Hosted at the Royal Armouries Museum, our 2019 annual conference event will be packed with sessions, training and networking opportunities. Our usual three-day conference programme includes papers, seminars and activities that aim to provide a forum for delegates to discuss and explore ideas around social value, public benefit, and the creation of knowledge. It offers the opportunity to think about legacy and how the work we undertake now will impact on future generations – from inspiring future careers to learning lessons from our failures. We will also consider how a multitude of stakeholders – archaeologists, policy makers, clients, the public – value our discipline: financially, politically and intellectually and think about how effective we are in communicating that value through the stories we tell.

We are now calling for papers from individuals, groups or organisations for the sessions set out in our draft programme.

To submit a proposal for a paper email the session organisers with the title of your paper and an abstract of up to 150
words. Make sure you include your name and contact details in your submission. Let them know if there are any days when you are unable to attend the conference.

The deadline for the submission of papers is 1 December 2018
