18th Fish Remains Working Group Meeting. Lisbon | September 28 - October 3 | 2015.
18th FRWG . Lisbon | September 28 - October 3 | 2015 . FISHING THROUGH TIME Archaeoichthyology, Biodiversity, Ecology and Human Impact on Aquatic EnvironmentsThe 18th biennial meeting of the International Council for Archaeozoology - Fish Remains Working Group (ICAZ-FRWG) will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) from 28th September– October 3rd 2015, hosted by the Directorate-General for Cultural Heritage - Archaeosciences Laboratory (DGPC - LARC) and the Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources – Environmental Archaeology Research Group (CIBIO - EnvArch). The meeting is aimed primarily at those with a professional interest in the systematic analysis of fish bones retrieved from archaeological sites around the world. Besides archaeozoologists, we also hope to attract archaeologists, ichthyologists, historians, ethnographers, fishery biologists, and others for whom this field is of serious but perhaps more marginal interest. Our objective is to encourage rich, productive, formal and informal dialogues among participants and across disciplines, generating ideas, promoting future research, and encouraging new collaborations. To this end the conference is structured to encompass a multiplicity of approaches to the study of fish remains, and their contribution to our understanding of how fishing, fish trade, fish consumption, biodiversity, ecology and human impact on aquatic environments have changed through time. The conference will focus on the following topics:
We request all colleagues who would like to present a paper and/or a poster to send us an abstract following the instructions in the Abstract Form. Please send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 27th 2015. For further information consult the FIRST CIRCULAR
