EAA 99 Types of Session and the Main Blocks

Types of Session

 Symposia which will mainly comprise oral presentations.

Seminars which will have both presentations and discussion periods.

Round Tables which will have short presentations and much time for discussion.

Poster Presentations which will comprise the permanent exhibition of a prepared poster together with a timetabled presentation slot when the author will be available to expand on the content of the exhibited poster.

The Main Blocks
The academic programme of the meeting will be organized in three main blocks, each containing a range of sessions dealing with a specific theme:
Block I - Managing the Archaeological Record and the Cultural Heritage
Block II - Archaeology of Today: Theoretical and Methodological Perspectives

Block III - Archaeology and Material Culture: Interpreting the Archaeological Record

Each block will run in parallel over the three days in which academic sessions are programmed so that participants wishing to focus on one particular block can follow through a series of relevant themes. Timetableing will, however, allow participants to move between blocks if they wish.
The official language of the Annual Business Meeting will be English. Although we will accept papers in German and French, papers, posters and round tables should preferably be written and given in English, since there will be no simultaneous translation. Where possible, session abstracts and paper abstracts will be provided in at least one other European language on the WWW site pages.
