Annual Meeting AIA Academic Program

The AIA and APA Joint Annual Meeting (AM) brings together professional and vocational archaeologists and classicists from around the world to share the latest developments from the field. This well-attended conference is the largest and oldest established meeting of classical scholars and archaeologists in North America.

The AM has grown tremendously over the past decade not only in attendance, but also in the scope of papers presented, demographic of attendees, and focus on professional development, cultural heritage management, new technologies and other topics of critical importance to the field. Each January more than 3,000 attendees from over 35 countries and nearly every state in the union attend this Joint Annual Meeting, allowing for the exchange of knowledge and ideas between top professionals in the field, post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as archaeology enthusiasts, ARCHAEOLOGY magazine subscribers, and AIA local society members.

Programming for the AM is skillfully crafted by the Program for the Annual Meeting Committees of both organizations. Combined with the offerings of the APA program, the Academic Programs include:

Joint Sessions
Open Sessions
Round-table Discussions

Lightning Session
Dedicated Undergraduate Session
Presidential Plenary Session
Professional Development Sessions
