AIA and SCS Joint Annual Meeting - Archaeological Institute Of America/Society For Classical Studies

2,500 50

Overview

Event Overview:

The Joint Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) (formerly known as the American Philological Association) will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, January 4–7, 2018.

Sessions exploring artifacts, art, social systems, fashion, cooking vessels, trade networks, shipwrecks, architecture, inscriptions, and archaeological research methods of the classical and New World will be offered.

The AM's conference app allows attendees to create custom schedules from both the AIA and SCS programs. In addition to the nearly 100 sessions offered, attendees can interact with presenters in a one-on-one forum at the poster session or roundtables.

Attendee Information:

The AIA and SCS Joint Annual Meeting (AM) brings together professional and vocational archaeologists and classicists from around the world to share the latest developments from the field. This well-attended conference is the largest and oldest established meeting of classical scholars and archaeologists in North America.

The AM has grown tremendously over the past decade not only in attendance, but also in the scope of papers presented, demographic of attendees, and focus on professional development, cultural heritage management, new technologies and other topics of critical importance to the field. Each January nearly 3,000 attendees from over 30 countries and nearly every state in the union attend this Joint Annual Meeting, allowing for the exchange of knowledge and ideas between top professionals in the field, post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as archaeology enthusiasts, ARCHAEOLOGY magazine subscribers, and AIA local society members. In their entirety, our attendees represent over 700:

Colleges & Universities
Educational Institutions
Funding Agencies & Trusts
Government Agencies
Magazines, Journals, Newspapers, University Presses, and other Scholarly Publications
Cultural Resource Management Companies
Non-profit Organizations
International Institutes
Archaeological Research Centers
Museums and Research Institutes

Exhibitor Information:

Recent conferences are averaging over 2,400 conference participants. Our recent meeting survey indicated that most of those attendees plan to attend the 2018 AM in Boston. We expect 2,500+ total attendees.

More than 50 companies exhibit at the meeting, with 80% returning every year. The showroom floor is always expanding to accommodate new exhibitors. We welcome vendors for books, software, technologies, outdoor gear, archaeological supplies, and travel. We also welcome educational institutions, field schools, grant-making, and non-profit agencies. Additionally, we seek artisans related to classics/archaeology and local destination crafts and goods.

About AIA:

The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) is North America's oldest and largest organization devoted to the world of archaeology. The Institute is a nonprofit group founded in 1879 and chartered by the United States Congress in 1906. Today, the AIA has nearly 210,000 Members and more than 100 Local Societies in the United States, Canada, and overseas. Our members include professional archaeologists, corresponding members, students, and enthusiasts, all united by a shared passion for archaeology and its role in furthering human knowledge.

About SCS:

The Society for Classical Studies (SCS), founded as the American Philological Association in 1869 by "professors, friends, and patrons of linguistic science," is the principal learned society in North America for the study of ancient Greek and Roman languages, literatures, and civilizations. While the majority of its members are university and college Classics teachers, members also include scholars in other disciplines, primary and secondary school teachers, and interested lay people. For over a century this community has relied on the Association to produce several series of scholarly books and texts; the journal, TAPA; and an annual meeting each January in conjunction with the Archaeological Institute of America.
