The  International Symposium on Archaeometry (ISA), hosted by the Getty Conservation Institute and UCLA,  in May 2014 will be a valuable opportunity to apply and demonstrate the latest research and findings of archaeometric research on a broad range of topics across time and space. The symposium will draw on examples and best practices from interdisciplinary research at the interface between the natural sciences, engineering and archaeology to reconstruct and understand human behavior through the study of material culture.

Taking place in Los Angeles, the ISA will bring together internationally renowned archaeological scientists and archaeologists with museum professionals, conservation scientists, policy-makers, representatives from non-governmental organizations and industry, natural scientists, engineers and other interested groups to  discuss new findings and innovations in technology and scientific research, and address current and global challenges in archaeology and cultural property ranging from the looting and illicit trafficking of antiquities to the archaeology of transitional periods.

Deadline for abstract submission is December 16, 2013. For more information, see http://www.archaeometry2014.com/.
