If you wish to propose an Inter-Congress at your affiliated institution, please notify any member of the WAC Executive. For consideration for WAC funding, the proposal needs to reach the WAC Executive by January of the previous year of the proposed Inter-Congress. For example, you need to submit a proposal of an Inter-Congress to be held in the year 2012 by January 2011. Please note that you need to be a WAC member to propose an Inter-Congress.
Inter-Congresses are held between the major International Congresses convened by WAC every four years. Inter-Congresses bring together archaeologists to explore issues of interest. They are organised by members of WAC regional electoral colleges.
