IAMS to offer funding for Timna conference

4 February 2013


IAMS is proud to offer full financial support for two students to travel and attend the archaeometallurgy conference in honour of the late Professor Beno Rothenberg, which will take place in Timna, Israel, April 22-25 2013.

The bursaries are aimed at helping students from low-income countries to participate in this international conference. All travel, accomodation, maintenance, and fees will be covered for these two students. The multidisciplinary theme of the conference is Mining for Copper: Environment, Culture and Copper in Antiquity.

Inquiring students should submit a budget including travel costs, maintenance, and any other (visa?) costs, and a brief statement as to why they want to participate; in case they wish to present their research (preferable), they should include an abstract of up to 350 words. Application deadline is 15 February.

Abstracts and statements should be sent to Erez Ben Yosef, and for more details please visit the conference website.
