ARCE’s 65th Annual Meeting will take place in Portland, Oregon, April 4 - 6, 2014 at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower Hotel. Portland, the City of Roses, is known for its collection of food carts scattered around town featuring ethnic food and locally grown ingredients; microbreweries; and the state signature grape – Pinot Noir. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the United States. Make your plans to attend the 2014 ARCE Annual Meeting, and be sure to check out what the city has to offer. Consider adding on extra days to explore Portland and the surrounding area.
New: A Student Poster session will be offered in Portland. Students are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration as a poster presentation. While students can submit both a poster and a paper, only one or the other can be accepted. ARCE is grateful to the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition for their generous underwriting of this new offering. Refer to the Student Poster guidelines >>
