Reasearch meeting/conference on the archaeology, material culture and heritage of the Indian Ocean

We are in the process of establishing an annual or biennial research meeting/conference on the archaeology, material culture and heritage of the Indian Ocean (defined as from East Africa to Japan, including Australasia) from the first millennium BC to the contemporary era. The model is likely to be similar to the annual Islamic Archaeology Day at University College London, but lasting perhaps up to two-days and with the location moving between different academic host institutions. The first conference is being held at the Institute of Arab and Islamic studies (IAIS), University of Exeter, with financial sponsorship provided by the Centre for Islamic Archaeology.

The idea is born out of the significant growth in Indian Ocean archaeology that has taken place in recent years, and the fact that there is still no regular forum where researchers can meet, present on their latest research, get to know each other, and discuss relevant topics. The aim is for the forum to be international, informal and research-focussed.
