Call for Abstracts

We invite abstracts which discuss and/or use traditional and geometric morphometric methodologies to investigate aspects of the archaeological record.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Innovative and novel uses of morphometric-based methodologies for the study of biological and non-biological variation within the human past.
  • Critical applications, reviews and future developments within archaeological morphometrics.
  • The appropriateness of extensive statistical methodologies in interpreting the ‘archaeological significance’ of artefacts.

All abstracts should be submitted (see below) before 17th March 2017. All applications will then be assessed, with outcomes soon after. The provisional programme will be outlined on the website in the last week of March.

Abstract Guidelines:

  • Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words.
  • Please specify whether the abstract is for a poster or oral presentation.

Oral Presentation Guidelines:

  • All oral presentations should be designed to last fifteen minutes, allowing five minutes for questions following each presentation.
  • We ask that the prepared talk and slides be presented in English.

Poster Guidelines:

  • Posters should be A1 or A0 in size, and portrait in orientation.
  • Poster board adhesives will be provided.
