Annual conference and training event

Our conference is the premier professional archaeological conference in the UK, attracting over hundreds of participants over three days. Combining keynote addresses, wide-ranging sessions, training workshops and exhibitions, the CIfA conference and training event provides an annual forum for discussing current professional issues, showcasing new developments and presenting research in archaeology and the wider heritage sector.

The conference usually takes place in April and moves around the UK on an annual basis. You can find links below for information about our forthcoming conference, and also to details of past meetings.
