The overall theme for this year is “The Archaeology of Transportation”.  Whether through travel by path, plank, or paved road, on rails, over water, or through the air, transportation has historically played, and continues to play, a vital role for the movement of people, their cultural practices, as well as material goods. Presentations related to any historic aspects of transportation are especially encouraged, as well as on industrial archaeology, the distribution of locally and commercially produced goods, and the establishment of transportation buildings or settlements, such as Spencer. However, presentations on all forms of current research are welcome.

As with conference tradition, again there is no professional organization to join and no annual dues to pay, only a small nominal fee to attend.
