This page provides you with information related to conference sponsorship. Whether you are looking for information about sponsorship opportunities available at the conference, or are interested in who the confirmed sponsors are, you can find that information here.
Sponsorship of the AAA conference provides many benefits for the overall conference experience for all delegates, including events like ‘Meet the Graduates’, prizes for best poster and photos, radiocarbon date awards, as well as the opportunity to learn and share expertise in pre and post conference workshops.
The Australian Archaeological Association 2015 conference will offer a limited number of travel subsidies to Indigenous and Student delegates. The scheme aims to encourage greater levels of Indigenous and student participation in the conference. Subsidies may be applied for to subsidise the costs of travel, registration, accommodation and/or meals. The maximum amount of travel subsidy for any individual delegate is capped at $500 and is treated as a reimbursement of costs incurred. See below for details.
Recent AAA conferences have been a great success in no small part due to the wonderful support we have received from many sponsors. In 2015 we are especially thankful to the following sponsors:

Conference Travel Subsidy Scheme
Australian Archaeological Association Conference Travel Subsidy Scheme for Indigenous and Student Participants 2015
The Australian Archaeological Association 2015 conference will offer a limited number of travel subsidies to Indigenous and Student delegates. The scheme aims to encourage greater levels of Indigenous and student participation in the conference. Note that non-Indigenous delegates are also eligible to apply on behalf of Indigenous delegates.
The amount of funding available in the Travel Subsidy Scheme varies from year-to-year based on the conference budget and the amount of sponsorship received.
Subsidies may be applied for to subsidise the costs of travel, registration, accommodation and/or meals. The maximum amount of travel subsidy for any individual delegate is capped at $500 and is treated as a reimbursement of costs incurred.
The Travel Subsidy Scheme should not be applied for in the place of other funding sources available to you for professional development or conference attendance in your community, workplace or university. If you do receive conference funds from another source you can still apply to the Travel Subsidy Scheme for expenses not covered by other sources.
- Both student and Indigenous delegates applying for travel subsidies should be named on a paper, poster or session to be presented at the conference or be otherwise engaged in conference activities (e.g. running workshops, participating in meetings etc).
- Students applying for travel subsidies must present evidence of being a student at the time of application.
- Delegates cannot receive more than 2 consecutive years of support from the Travel Subsidy Scheme.
Applications for subsidies will be considered by the Conference Subcommittee in consultation with Indigenous and Student Representatives and the outcomes advised in early December 2015. Successful applicants will be reimbursed on the presentation of receipts at the conference equal to or greater than the maximum subsidy approved. Successful travel subsidy applicants must still register and pay for the conference and any accommodation or extras as normal through the website.
In assessing applications for funding, consideration will be given to: what you are doing at the conference (e.g. presenting a paper); what benefit you (or your) community will receive through participation in the conference; and whether you have received funding from the scheme in previous years.
Please email your completed application to Thomas Whitley at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is 10 December 2015.
