Field Reports

  • Field reports will be 10 minutes in length ( rigorously enforced, so plan & practice your best ' elevator speech ' )
  • Presenters may bring & distribute paper handouts & other media (e.g., diskettes, cd-rom) related to their field report presentations
  • There will be no A-V support for field reports (in the past, we've sometimes had a flip chart or board upon which folks can draw)
  • There will not be concurrent sessions, so not all field reports may be accepted (submit early proposals)
  • Field report and poster submissions will be permitted until the end of early registration on July 1, 2007
  • Some presenters may be asked to convert their field reports into posters (if by the 1 July submission deadline there are more field report submissions than conference time slots, we will be asking folks to 'posterize' papers that could not be scheduled)


  • Posters will be accepted, and there will be a poster area (inside a tent)
  • There will be easels for posters, but posters should be free-standing (with a backing so that they can be stood up), or hung on the side of a tent
  • Posters should be weather-resistant
  • There is no limit on poster sizes (note: 36" x 96" [3' x 8'] is the standard max. size for SAA posters)
  • There is no place for poster titles on the mail-in registration form, but please note your poster titles anyway, so titles may appear in the program
  • For suggestions on how to create a great poster, check out Jeffery Homburg's article in the January 2005 issue of the SAA Archaeological Record (Vol. 5, No. 1), "Tips for Improving the Quality of your Poster Presentation"


  • Please provide a short URL for both field reports & posters (consider snip, tinyurl or shorttext to reduce your base URL)
  • A short URL will be printed on the program next to the paper or poster title for post-conference access to your presentation
  • Presenters without server space can build a page on wikipedia, or blog a free VOX account, and submit the URL
  • Consider preparing a short video or powerpoint slide presentation for posting on youtube, and submit the URL
  • Do not disclose sensitive site location information & ask trusted colleagues to review your presentation before posting
