Early Careers Special Interest Group Annual Conference 

27 July 2022 | 3 - 9pm | Online

Call for entries

Following the success of last year's conference, the CIfA Early Careers Special Interest Group are hosting another digital Early Careers Conference as part of the Council for British Archaeology’s Festival of Archaeology (16-31 July 2022). 

This digital conference aims to platform students and early career archaeologists, and to give them the opportunity to gain presentation experience. 

Date: 27 July 2022
Time: 3 - 9pm 

Who is it for? 

The conference is open to anyone studying archaeology or an associated subject such as osteoarchaeology, anthropology, or cultural heritage management, undertaking an apprenticeship or training scheme, or in early career employment in archaeology (first 18 months). 

Is there a theme or preferred presentation format? 

There is no set theme. Instead, participants are encouraged to present on any topic of their choice.

The aim is to make as many people as possible feel comfortable contributing, and with this in mind, we will be accommodating a range of presentation methods. 

These will include:  

  • Short lectures  
  • Pre-recorded presentations  
  • Posters  

The full Call for Contributions is attached here, which sets out more information about the conference, the benefits of taking part and how the ECSIG and CBA will support participants. It also provides details of how to submit an abstract.
