Young Researchers in Archaeology Conference 2013

Once again, we would like to invite you to participate in the Young Researchers in Archaeology Conference (Jornadas de Jóvenes en Investigación Arqueológica – JIA), aimed to researchers who are not in possession of a PhD degree (including MA/Msc and undergraduate students). It is our pleasure to announce you that the VIth JIA 2013 Conference is organized by AINUBHA (Associació d'Investigadors/es de la Universitat de Barcelona en Història i Arqueologia). The event will be held in Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) from the 7th to 11th of May 2013 at the Facultat de Geografia i Història, Universitat de Barcelona (UB) and the Institució Milà i Fontanals, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC).

JIA 2013 Structure

The conference will be organised around the following strands:

  • Workshops. For the first time in the JIA, this year there will be some workshops of great interest for young archaeologists, in order to provide a space for training and discussion as a complementary action to the conference. They will be taking place on May 7th, the day before the sessions.
  • Communications and discussions in round table format. Following the model established in previous JIA, sessions will be organized in round table format.
  • Posters. For any particular session or as a ‘free topic’ poster.
