We are pleased to announce that the Archaeological Sciences of the Americas Symposium is soliciting podium and poster presentations. Co-sponsored by the University of Florida and Vanderbilt University, this triennial conference will be held at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, October 5 and Saturday, October 6, 2012. The goal of the symposium is to spotlight innovative research that applies scientific techniques to the study of prehistoric and historic materials. The symposium traditionally focuses on the archaeology of the Americas. However, students and professionals engaged in projects outside the Americas are also encouraged to submit abstracts. ASAS gathers graduate students and professionals in an intimate setting to share the latest research and methods spanning anthropological and paleontological sub-disciplines, including but not limited to archaeometry, isotope analysis, ancient DNA analysis, paleobotany, geoarchaeology, and spatial analysis.

We are accepting abstracts for both podium and poster presentations. The symposium is open to students, academic faculty and professionals working in independent and government settings.

Attendees and presenters are encouraged to Pre-Register by July 15, 2012.
