CIfA is delighted to announce that the CIfA2023 conference will be hosted from Wednesday, 19 April - Friday, 21 April 2023.

We intend to host CIfA2023 as a livestreamed conference, hosted live in Nottingham UK and streamed online. We hope this will offer attendees the same flexibility they experienced in 2022, but learn from our experiences to allow for the best digital user experience.

CIfA2023 will incorporate keynote addresses, wide-ranging sessions and training workshops in a live and virtual forum. Across the conference, we will discuss current professional issues, showcase new developments, and present research in archaeology and the wider heritage sector. Our conference is the premier professional archaeological conference in the UK, attracting hundreds of participants across the heritage environment sector.
