AAA will soon be launching the website for the 2019 conference in Surfers Paradise.  The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Disrupting Paradise: The Archaeology of the Driest Continent on Earth’.

The NEC and conference organizing committee are working hard to make this a fantastic conference.  We will be meeting at the Mantra on View, located right in the middle of Surfers Paradise, and we have secured affordable accommodation packages with the Mantra.

As each year passes, we recognise that AAA conferences have unfortunately become more expensive, especially for students.  This year, we are very happy to announce that the NEC has substantially reduced the early-bird conference registration rates for students and regular members.  We encourage everyone to take advantage of the early-bird rates, which will be $200 for students and $400 for regular members.  These reduced rates, combined with other initiatives, aim to widen the appeal of the annual AAA conference and increase attendance; so if you work in the university sector, please be sure to encourage your students to attend.

We look forward to seeing you in Surfers Paradise this December!
