18TH CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL WORKGROUP FOR PALAEOETHNOBOTANY
2019 will be the year of the 18th congress of the IWGP and we are much looking forward to see many of you in Italy. We are planning to organize it in the first half of June to avoid the warmest months in sunny Lecce.
Our website will be online soon and we will activate a dedicated email account. We will send you all the contacts in the next weeks. In the meantime, please find attached a pdf with all the essential information on location, transport and accomodation (as showed in Paris in occasion of our candidature).
We remain at your disposal for any questions through my e-mail at the moment.
With best regards from the organizing team of the 18th IWGP,

Conditions for admission
In order for a paper or poster to be accepted for inclusion in an IWGP conference, the major subject matter should relate to the study of the human exploitation of plant resources (wild and/or domesticated) or human interactions with the environment, by analysis and interpretation of plant macro remains (mainly seeds, fruits and other plant parts if connected with seeds, but not charcoal or pollen and spores etc.). Limited inclusion of anthracological or palynological data may be acceptable in circumstances where this complements the plant macrofossil data.

1. 'Integration' of different lines of archaeobotanical evidence, i.e. plant macros, pollen, charcoal, phytoliths.
2. Field recovery techniques and solving problems in difficult situations
3. The archaeobotanical investigation of food remains
4. The contribution of ethnobotany to archaeobotanical research
5. Origins of agriculture
