The 24th Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference
University of Reading, Friday 28th to Sunday 30th March 2014
TRAC 2014 was held alongside the Roman Archaeology Conference at the University of Reading. Booking for the joint conference is available through the University of Reading’s RAC/TRAC website here, but has now closed. ‘Early bird’ reduced rates were available until 31st December 2013.
The call for individual papers and sessions has now closed – the call for posters has also now closed.
Posters are invited on any aspect of Roman Archaeology.
We will have display boards in the Palmer Building atrium on the Friday and Saturday with space for 20 posters. The poster session will be on Friday lunchtime when authors will be encouraged to stand by their poster. Poster sessions are intended to give you the chance to present interesting ideas and start conversations with others. It is important to understand that your poster is neither a paper nor a slideshow. The poster is not there for the audience to just read, it is a visual aid for you to use in creating a quick engaging impromptu presentation, and to refer to in answering questions and fuelling discussion. Use this session as a way to make connections with people that you can continue through the open spaces or informally during the conference.
Your poster will only be considered if you have registered for the conference. If you are already giving a paper, preference may be given to delegates not already presenting.
To submit a poster for consideration, please send a PDF of the poster to firstname.lastname@example.org by 28 February 2014. If selected a copy of the poster, no larger than A1 (841 x 594 mm), will need to be delivered to the conference office by 10:30 am on the first full day of the conference.
Limited bursaries are available for speakers in TRAC sessions, kindly sponsored by the Roman Society and Barbican Research Associates.To apply for a bursary please send an email with supporting information to email@example.com. Bursaries will normally be limited to a maximum of £75, and preference will be given to students enrolled on post-graduate degree courses in the UK and abroad.
