PoCA 2021 
18th Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (PoCA) 2021 - 9-11 December 2021 - General Information
The Institute for Classical Archaeology at the Department of Ancient Civilizations of the University of Basel is pleased to announce the 18th meeting of Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (PoCA). The meeting will take place from the 9th to the 11th of December 2021 in Basel. The event will be held in a hybrid form with both remote and on-site attendance if the situation allows. This will ensure the maximum participation of scholars from across the world and facilitate a transition to a fully virtual meeting if on-site attendance is not possible.

The PoCA meeting offers an excellent opportunity for postgraduate researchers and fresh postdoctoral scholars (within six years of the completion of their PhD) from various backgrounds and disciplines to present their work on Cypriot culture and archaeology. The aim of PoCA is to provide young researchers with a forum in which to present their work, discuss central themes of their research, meet people who work in the same area and exchange ideas and information in a friendly and collegial environment. We warmly welcome papers from young scholars on the archaeology, ancient history, epigraphy and ancient languages of Cyprus as well as multidisciplinary approaches and wider chronological and contextual analyses of Cypriot material culture and its reception abroad. There is no registration fee. However, if onsite attendance will be possible participants will need to make their own travel plans and arrange their own accommodation. The meeting is open to everybody, and we invite all interested people to attend.
Please send your paper proposal with title, name, address, affiliation of the author (or authors) and an abstract of no more than 250 words to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Communications should be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion.

We intend to publish the papers presented at the Meeting. All submissions will be subject to peer review, and acceptance for presentation does not guarantee inclusion in the final publication. Further information about the publication will be given during the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you in Basel!
