2012 joint ASHA/AIMA Conference

The 2012 joint ASHA/AIMA conference will be held in Western Australia for the first time at the University of Notre Dame and the Western Australia Maritime Museum from Sunday 30 September to Wednesday 3 October.

This conference aims to draw together the shared interests of researchers in historical and maritime archaeology by linking aspects of land and sea - 'Surf and Turf'. Together, such sites form a holistic landscape that can be documented and interpreted to provide a better understanding of past events, activities and human behaviour. Areas of interest to archaeologists such as exploration, colonisation, trade and communication have similar conjunctions with no distinction between the low tide mark. Papers and posters will explore the networks and connections between land and sea both conceptually and archaeologically.

Call for papers

Papers are invited in themed sessions, details of which can be found at the conference's website at

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 30 June. Abstracts that best fit the session themes will be given preference. Please submit a 250 word abstract for conference papers direct to session chairs. Paper presentations will be 15 minutes in length, followed by a 5 minute question and answer session.

Student researchers are particularly encouraged to submit papers and posters.


Registration and other conference details can be found on the conference website
