53rd Annual Meeting of the Canadian Archaeological Association: 2021 Virtual Conference

CAA 2021 Virtual Conference – Call for Sessions and Abstracts

We are pleased to announce the Call for Sessions and Abstracts for the 53rd Annual Canadian Archaeological Association Meetings—our first ever virtual conference! We hope you will consider submitting a session proposal or contributing a paper or poster—we have two session types this year:

  1. Invited sessions: The session convenor(s) invite specific people to address a specific topic or a theme. Additional papers may be included as posters. Convenors do not need to have a full slate of presenters lined up when they submit their proposal.
  2. Themed sessions: The session consists of volunteered papers organized around a particular theme. Session convenor(s) will be asked to select and arrange papers from those volunteered for the session; additional papers may be included as posters.

We are open to suggestions of other formats (e.g., lightning rounds, virtual poster sessions, discussion panels, etc.) that lend themselves to the virtual environment. Please send an email to conference@canadianarchaeology.com to propose an alternative format.

All session proposals and abstracts must be submitted on the CAA website. We encourage students to check the box in the submission system to enter their posters in the student poster competition.

Session proposals must be received by midnight on February 21, 2021. Abstracts are due at midnight on March 8.

 You must be a current CAA member and logged in to the website in order to access the submission forms.
