The Society for East Asian Archaeology (SEAA) is pleased to announce that the Eighth SEAA Worldwide Conference will be held in Nanjing, China, on June 8-11, 2018. The conference will be hosted by the School of History at Nanjing University. The local organizer of the conference is Professor ZHANG Liangren.

The conference offers an opportunity for researchers to present the results of their work on any of a broad range of topics relating to East Asian archaeology. We look forward to receiving proposals for presentations, posters or short films as individual proposals or in organized sessions. We welcome submissions that highlight the growth and depth of East Asian archaeology as a field of study, and encourage submissions that focus on adjacent regions such as Southeast Asia, the Pacific, and North and Central Asia.

Examples of possible topics include, but are not limited to, archaeological scientific approaches to East Asian topics, theoretical deliberations that crosscut geographical boundaries, and research of particular sites, regions, or cultures. The length of individual talks will be approximately 20 minutes, although the specifics will ultimately depend on the final number of presentations. The conference language is English.

Information about SEAA, SEAA membership, and the Eighth Worldwide Conference in Nanjing (including the registration and proposal forms as well as post-conference tours and accommodation options) will be published on the SEAA website as they become available.

The deadline for the submission of presentation and session proposals is January 31, 2018
