Following the success of the two first editions of the Virtual Conference for Women Archaeologists and Paleontologists, we are back in 2023 to offer young/early-career woman researchers (not holding a permanent position from master to postdoctoral stages) in Archaeology and Paleontology, an opportunity to gain visibility by presenting their research and to every researcher to reflect on the gender-related issues in these disciplines. Moreover, for this third edition, we welcome contributions from women paleo-artists to exhibit their work in a virtual Paleoart Gallery.

This year, the conference will be held on March 7-8, 2023 and will be held online (on Zoom, Discord and Gather Town) and free of charge for speakers and attendees.

We received the prestigious support from the Wenner Gren Foundation.

Deadline for abstract submission (regular talk, poster, paleoart) : December 5th, 2022

Registrants of all demographics (any gender or academic position) are welcome to register as audience members.
