We would like to appeal to those members of the economy that are in a working relationship with archaeology, and therefore understand the significance of the efforts that this conference makes in promoting the most recent research methods. The conference in Budapest is different from all previous CAA meetings in the sense that it tries to turn this practical relationship into a mutually beneficial co-operation.
We offer to our sponsors a conference that, as a whole, will target the advancing of such a co-operation, in addition to an opportunity to appear on the promotional surfaces of an event of international significance: on our website, which will operate from one year before to two years after the event, in the abstract book and conference proceedings.
The topics and methods we represent are still relatively new in archaeology. The age of the conference participants is usually below the average for the humanities. We are very glad about this, however, it gives us the extra task of making sure that no one has to miss the conference because of financial reasons. We would like to ask for the help of our sponsors to resolve this issue.
While in the US and Western Europe organisers establish set amounts of money for gold, silver and bronze sponsors, we shall not do this, because we think that all support serves to further the above goals.
