We are delighted to announce the International Conference on the Science of Ancient Egyptian Materials and Technologies (SAEMT), to take place in Cairo in November 2017. The conference invites the submission of abstracts for papers and posters in English from international researchers who employ various archaeological sciences in their research on ancient Egyptian materials, their adoption, developments and technologies.
The conference's aims are threefold: first, to provide a venue for specialists employing archaeological sciences to meet and to present their research and exchange ideas; second, to emphasise the importance of archaeological sciences and interdisciplinary approaches within Egyptology; third, to provide a space for those working within Egypt to discuss measures for overcoming limitations that hinder scientific applications in Egypt. Panel discussions will also explore topics such as access to the necessary reliable facilities to perform analyses and how to improve the levels and standards of analytical methods within Egypt.
The papers will be published in a peer reviewed publication.
