Since its foundation in 1976, the GMPCA (Groupe des Méthodes Pluridisciplinaires Contribuant à l'Archéologie) association aims to develop research on multidisciplinary methods contributing to archaeology in France and around the world. This association brings together specialists from various disciplines contributing to the resolution of archaeological and art history problems. The interface of these disciplines with archaeology is called "Archaeometry".
Every two years since 1977, the GMPCA has organised the Archaeometry Congress, whose scientific objective is to take stock of the progress of techniques applied in the field of heritage, to enable young researchers to present their work and to compare research practices in heritage science in Europe and beyond.
The next Archaeometry symposium will be co-organized in Nice from 17 to 21 April 2023 by the CEPAM laboratory (CNRS, Université Côte d'Azur).
Organisation: Léa Drieu, Claire Delhon, Martine Regert
The CEPAM (Cultures – Environnements. Préhistoire, Antiquité, Moyen Âge) is an interdisciplinary research unit characterised by a broad interface between the humanities, natural and physicochemical sciences, allowing the study of diverse archaeological remains, from artefacts and ecofacts to landscapes, over a wide chronology from the earliest prehistory to the Middle Ages.
