Session Formats  

Sessions will be labelled as either ‘Session’ or ‘Discussion session’.


A. Session

Made up of a combination of papers, max. 15 minutes each


B. Discussion session

Session with a key note speaker with contributions from discussants and discussion;

  • Session with pre-circulated papers
  • Session with papers of six minutes and six slides
  • Poster session
  • Round table
  • Field session
  • Other


All sessions should aim to have scientific as well as practical, social or political impact. Sessions should initiate and continue transnational cooperation and further the discipline as a whole. Session organisers are responsible to summarize sessions as well as to draw and communicate conclusions from their sessions. They can do that for example by publishing a report on the session in TEA or another journal, by a proposal to the EAA Executive Board or by publishing the contributions in an edited volume.


EAA promotes participation, reflection and engagement beyond its European focus. Contributions from outside Europe are highly welcome: they can reflect on how archaeologists cope with similar issues in other cultural contexts or how Europe’s problems appear seen from a distance.
