SEAC 26th   Abstract Submission

Call for Papers:

Deadline for oral presentation is over!

If you have missed the deadline we can still accept some poster presentations.


We invite you to submit proposals for the SEAC 2018 to be held in Graz, Austria. The conference will consist of invited talks, oral presentations, and posters.

Proposals may consider the role of astronomy in any aspect of culture and may address any time period or region. We are interested in current research covering the history of astronomy, techniques of celestial navigation, astronomical knowledge hidden in archaeological sites, ethno-astronomy and cultural astronomy as well as any other aspect of cultural astronomy.

All proposals will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Oral presentations (except invited talks) are limited to 20 minutes (17 minutes presentation + 3 minutes discussion).

A special poster session will be held. Like the oral presentations, posters will only be accepted for presentation at the conference, if the author is personally present. Poster format is A0.
