The organising committee of the Sixth World Archaeology Congress (WAC-6) are delighted to now invite colleagues from across the globe to come to University College Dublin, Ireland from June 29-July 4, 2008 for this spectacular archaeological conference. We are planning a varied and engaging thematic programme and a wide range of social
events that will provide opportunities to experience the cultural and social life of Dublin and Ireland and to sample this island’s outstanding archaeological heritage.

WAC is committed to diversity and to redressing global inequities in archaeology through conferences, publications and scholarly programs. It has a special interest in protecting the cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples, minorities and peoples from a range of countries. WAC-6 will continue the established practice of previous international
congresses in facilitating the participation and empowerment of indigenous peoples and researchers from economically disadvantaged countries.

This first announcement is a call for themes, sessions, papers and posters. See www.ucd.ie/wac-6 for details of application, programme, accommodation, costs and grant opportunities.
