The conference ran for five days from Monday 6th July to Friday 10th July, 2015. Panels were invited on any topic or theme related to Southeast Asian archaeology. Papers on South Asia and China which are important for issues of long-distant contact and regional modelling were also part of the programme.
The European Association of Southeast Asian Archaeologists (EurASEAA) was established in 1986 as a parallel association of the already existing South Asian Archaeology Association.
The main aim of the association is to bring together every two years, at a European venue, scholars who are working in the field of Southeast Asian archaeology including prehistory and early history, ethnoarchaeology, art history, epigraphy and philology to present and discuss new data. This international initiative aims to foster scholarly cooperation within Europe in the field of Southeast Asian archaeology, as well as world-wide cooperation between Southeast Asian scholars. The Association is striving to find funds to facilitate the participation of Southeast Asian colleagues.
EurASEAA held its first conference in London in 1986, and the biennial conference has since moved around various European cities. There have been EurASEAA conferences in Belgium (Brussels 1990), France (Paris 1988 and 1994, Bougon 2006), Germany (Berlin 1998 and 2010), Ireland (Dublin 2012), Italy (Rome 1992, Sarteano 2000), the Netherlands (Leiden 1996 and 2008), Sweden (Sigtuna 2002) and the United Kingdom (London 1986, 2004).
There is no fixed membership. Scholars and students from all countries are welcome to participate in the international conferences. They join the association for the duration of the conference on registering.
