The 7th annual meeting of Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (POCA) will be held on the 19th- 20th October 2007 at the Main Auditorium of the University of Cyprus. The event will be organised for the first time in Cyprus, by the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Cyprus.

POCA 2007 will open on the 18th October 2007 at 7.30 p.m. with a plenary lecture by Dr Nicholas Stanley-Price.
An excursion is planned for the 21st October 2007, depending on adequate participation. 

This symposium offers an excellent opportunity to postgraduate students and new scholars, from various backgrounds and disciplines, who are currently carrying out research on Cypriot Archaeology, to present their work, exchange ideas and meet people who carry out research in the same field. Undergraduates are also warmly invited to attend.
There is no registration fee.

We welcome all papers regarding archaeological, anthropological, historical, sociological or other aspects of material culture of Cyprus and related subjects. There are no chronological limits.

Interested scholars are invited to submit an abstract (max. 150-200 words) and a short biographical note by the 1st of August 2007 to poca2007 AT   Papers should be 20 minutes long, as they will be followed by discussion. Please note that we intend to publish the proceedings, if a sufficient number of papers is submitted. All submissions will be subject to editorial review, and therefore acceptance for presentation does not automatically guarantee inclusion in the final publication.

POCA 2007 committee kindly request that you inform any interested individuals within your research community regarding this event.

We look forward to seeing you in Nicosia!
