Scope of the conference

The scope of the conference, as it was announced by organisers of the 10th Conference in Vienna in 2013, is as following:

"The conference aims to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of latest developments and cutting-edge research in the field of archaeological prospection. It shall cover the entire spectrum of methodology and technology applied to the detection, localization and investigation of buried cultural heritage (aerial photography, airborne laser scanning, hyperspectral imaging, near-surface geophysics, data processing, visualization and archaeological interpretation).

The focus shall be on integrative approaches exploiting the diversity of all data and information necessary for the visualization and interpretation of archaeological and historical monuments, structures and entire archaeological landscapes. (…)

During the conference an emphasis will put on the importance of archaeological feedback. An open doors session will be dedicated to the topic of geophysical-archaeological cooperation. We also intend to devote attention to the history of archaeological geophysics.

The conference will also be a great opportunity to visit Warsaw, the historical main campus of the University of Warsaw, the state-of-the-art Copernicus Science Centre and last but not least the Baroque Royal Palace of Jan III Sobieski in Wilanów.

Various social events are planned which will give participants opportunities to acquaint themselves with the archaeological prospection community and to continue discussions started during the official sessions in more informal circumstances.
