The Virtual Conference for Women Archaeologists and Paleontologists (VCWAP) will be back for its fourth edition on March 6-8, 2024! During these three days, we will be shining a spotlight on early-career women researchers and women paleoartists, by presenting their work.
We want to emphasize that everyone, regardless of gender, employment stage, gender identity, or expression, is warmly welcome to attend and participate in the discussions. We believe in the power of mentorship and networking to foster growth, diversity, and inclusivity within the academic community. We are not just about showcasing scientific excellence; we are here to build a supportive community for women in science. Join us to be part of this empowering experience.
The 4th VCWAP will take place on March 6-8th, 2024. It will be held online (via Zoom, Discord, and Gather Town) and free of charge. If you wish to help us finance the awards and workshop for the 4th VCWAP, you can join, for 2-10€, the Association for early-career Women Archaeologists and Paleontologists.
During the VCWAP, early-career women researchers and women paleoartists can present their work in three engaging formats:
- 10 min Talk (Zoom);
- Poster (Gather Town)
- Paleoartistic Reconstructions (Gather Town).
Gather Town provides a virtual space that facilitates dynamic and real-time discussions, enhancing the interaction between presenters and attendees.
In addition to our scientific sessions, we will continue our tradition of hosting a Round Table Discussion, focusing on gender-related issues and ways to address them in both Archaeology and Paleontology.
Once again, everyone, regardless of career stage, gender identity or expression, is invited to participate in our inclusive event, where we aim to foster mentorship, diversity, and community support for women in science.
