The RAC2016 Executive Committee is pleased to announce the Call for Individual Papers for the Twelfth Roman Archaeology Conference at Sapienza University of Rome.
The Conference will address a range of important topics and themes relating to the archaeology of the Roman world. We are inviting proposals for Papers that will present new discoveries or ideas in the field of Roman archaeology through one of the themed conference sessions (click here for the list of sessions as a pdf (442kb)).
Paper proposals that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the RAC 2016 themed sessions, see below.
Paper proposers should note the following:
Presentations should last no longer than 30 minutes
Speakers should leave sufficient time at the end of their papers for questions from the audience
The official conference languages are English, French, German, Spanish and Italian
Unfortunately, RAC cannot cover the costs of speakers’ travel and accommodation to attend the Conference
This is a participative conference where more than half the delegates are speaking, so all delegates are expected to pay the conference fee. This helps keep the fees as low as possible and also maximises participation and engagement
Proposals for papers must include the following information:
Title of the Paper
Name, affiliation, postal address and email of the proposer(s)
Title of the themed session in which they would like to offer a Paper (or ‘General’ if outside a themed session)
A short description of the theme or subject area of the Paper (not more than 200 words)
Session organisers should also note the following:
They will need to instruct the speakers included in their original submission to send in their Paper proposals and abstract
Additional Papers are likely to be offered for all sessions. The final list of speakers at the Conference will be decided by session organisers, with advice from the Executive Committee
RAC cannot cover the costs of speakers’ travel and accommodation to attend the Conference
The deadline for the submission of Paper proposals is Saturday 5 September 2015.
Submissions should be sent by email to the RAC Executive Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org and to the lead organiser of the session the Paper is intended for.
Please note that RAC 2016 is already very full, so we cannot guarantee that all paper proposals will be accepted
The full conference schedule will be announced here by the end of November 2015.
