Annual Meeting: Ethical Standards Requirement

All presentations made at the Annual Meeting must conform with the AIA Resolutions on the Importation of Antiquities. The PAMC will reject any submission that it determines to be in violation of any of these documents.

Submitters/presenters should note, specifically, that in accordance with the AIA’s Resolution Concerning the Acquisition of Cultural Properties Originating in Foreign Countries (1973), "the Annual Meeting may not serve for the announcement or initial scholarly publication of any object in a public or private collection acquired after December 30, 1973, unless its existence can be documented prior to that date, or it was legally exported from the country of origin." An exception may be made by the Program for the Annual Meeting Committee if the presentation emphasizes the loss of archaeological context.
