Guidelines for preparing a proposal for a World Archaeological Congress Inter-Congress


WAC holds Inter-Congresses between the major International Congresses convened by WAC every four years. Inter-Congresses bring together archaeologists and others who wish to explore issues of mutual interest. They usually are organized by members of WAC regional electoral colleges, but may be organized by others with the concurrence of the WAC Executive and Council.

WAC encourages organizers to avoid scheduling an Inter-Congress in the same year that a major International Congress is being held to avoid the inevitable stress on finances for both delegates and possible funding agencies.

We have established this set of guidelines, attached here- WAC Inter-Congress guidelines proposal -to assist in the preparation of proposals to hold an Inter-Congress. In no way are these to be considered absolutes that you must address in a proposal, but they are matters that undoubtedly will be raised as the Executive and Council consider your proposal.
