CIfA2022: Annual Conference

27 – 29 April 2022

Hybrid event (online and hosted live in Bath, UK)

CIfA is delighted to announce that the CIfA2022 conference will be hosted from Wednesday, 27 April - Friday, 29 April 2022. Encouraged by the success of our first digital conference in 2021 and the gradual easing of COVID restrictions and the safe return to live events, we intend to offer our 2022 conference as a hybrid event. In being able to offer an integrated live and digital conference experience, our hope is that our programme will continue to encourage the accessibility of the conference.

CIfA2022 will incorporate keynote addresses, wide-ranging sessions and training workshops in an integrated live and virtual forum. Across three days, 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.


Conference programme and theme

Our conference theme will be announced shortly with a call for sessions commencing in late June. If you do have any questions about CIfA2022 or our sessions in the meantime, please do get in touch with us via
