Under the high patronage of His Majesty King Mohamed VI
The 15th Congress of PanAfrican Archaeological Association for Prehistory and Related Studies (PanAf)
Rabat, Morocco, between 10-14 September, 2018
The Sciences Faculty of Mohammed V University in Rabat, the National Institute of Archaeology and Heritage Sciences in Rabat, the Mohammed I University in Oujda, and Moulay Ismaïl university in Meknes, cordially invite you to participate at the XVth Congress of the PanAfrican Association of Archeology, Prehistory and Associated Disciplines, to be held in Rabat, Morocco, from 10 to 14 September 2018 in the Faculty of Science (Mohamed V University), situated in the Ibn Battouta Street, 1000 Rabat-Agdal.
The general theme validated by the Scientific Committee is:
“Valorization of African Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development”
The other themes that will be developed correspond to the different sessions proposed by researchers, validated by the Scientific Committee (see the complete list of accepted sessions) http://panaf18.fsoujda.org/en/accepted-sessions/
Our objective is to make this an event that extends well beyond the African continent. Beyond the scientific exchanges, which will form the core of our meeting, we hope to not only promote and encourage interactions between different disciplines and different schools, but also to forge relationships and friendships between researchers and students from different regions of Africa. This will facilitate inter-African collaboration through intensive exchange of knowledge, information, ideas, concepts, methods and experiences. The congresses of the PanAfrican Archaeological Association of Prehistory and Related Studies are important events for developing South/South university exchanges, and also for revitalizing North/South comparative thinking.
