we are proud to announce that the next meeting of the European Association of Southeast Asian Archaeologists will be hosted by the Institute of Prehistory, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland. The 16th meeting of EurASEAA is scheduled for summer 2017. Bringing the conference to Poland will be a great opportunity for EurASEAA community to explore new territories and Poznań’s unique atmosphere of creativity and enterprise will foster fruitful academic presentations and discussions.
The Institute of Prehistory of the Adam Mickiewicz University, founded in 1919, is one of the leading Polish archaeological research institutions. The Institute focuses on landscape archaeology, methodology and theoretical archaeology and has made a great contribution in developing and promoting non-invasive methods in archaeological research. Additionally, researchers from Poznań are active “in the field” in dozens of countries in Asia, Africa and Europe. The conference venue is Collegium Historicum Novum, which opened in September 2015 as the new home of the Faculty of History.
Poznań is western Poland’s biggest city, halfway between Berlin and Warsaw. Poznań played a major role in Polish history as a seat of the early state’s rulers. In 968 AD the first Catholic Diocese on Polish soil was established in Poznań. Nowadays, thanks to well known diligence of Poznań’s people, the city is an important economic node of Central Europe and is home to branches of numerous international corporations, such as Volkswagen, GlaxoSmithKline or Bridgestone. The city offers a wide range of accommodation and is easy to access: Poznań can be reached in 2 h 30 min by train from Berlin, as well as Poznań Ławica airport serves daily flights to numerous destinations in Europe (base for budget airlines: RyanAir and WizzAir, direct connections to hub-airports of Frankfurt, Munich and Copenhagen).
More information will be announced in early 2016. We are looking forward to hosting you in Poznań.
