UK Archaeological Science Conference 2017
UCL’s Institute of Archaeology is proud to be hosting the 2017 UK Archaeological Science conference. The conference will take place within UCL’s central London campus from the 5-8 April 2017.
UKAS is a biennial international conference which aims to bring together researchers from all areas of archaeological science. The conference attracts scientists with expertise in a wide range of analytical techniques including biomolecular and ancient DNA analysis, stable isotopes, mineralogy and metallurgy, archaeobotany, conservation and heritage science, residue analysis, geoarchaeology, and computational modelling.
Research themes covered include mobility, migration and cultural exchange, plant-animal-human relationships, material culture and technologies, climate and environment, subsistence and diet, heritage management, and the application of archaeological science in commercial archaeology.

Abstract Submission and Sessions
Each podium presentation slot will last for a total of 15 minutes. We recommend that presenters talk for 10-12 minutes, allowing 3-5 minutes for questions. A Windows PC will be available for use in the Gustav Tuck Lecture Theatre. Presenters should bring with them their presentation slides on a USB device and ensure they are uploaded onto the Lecture Theatre computer before the start of their session. One of the UKAS organisers will be available to assist with this. Please note, to ensure a timely switch over between presenters, we are unable to offer the opportunity for presenters to use their own laptops. The computer in the Lecture Theatre has a standard range of presentation software available. We recommend that presentations are formatted either as a PDF or Powerpoint file.
Posters can be A1 portrait or landscape, or A0 portrait (although this option will result in a 18cm overhang at the bottom of the poster board.
Posters can be displayed as soon as you have registered your arrival, and poster boards will remain in place until the close of the poster session on Friday evening. Each poster has been allocated a numbered board. Please ensure you place your poster in the correct position. Posters must be removed after the poster session has ended.
