In December 2012 the conference will be hosted in Berkeley by the University of California (USA) as a one day joint meeting (December Saturday 8) of the 2012 PNC annual conference. The conference will be organized in partnership with University of California, Merced (USA), School of Social Sciences,
Humanities and Arts and the University of Siena (ITALY), Department of Archaeology and History of Arts, Landscape Archaeology and Remote Sensing Lab (LAP&T).

The conference will focus more specifically on local and small scale at intra-site analysis and socio-ecological system analysis, consisting of a limited cultural-physical unit, its associated social/cultural/economical actors and institutions and their development through the time.

The main objective IS NOT to talk about technologies BUT to show the impact of technological applications on the improvement of archaeological models, the interpretation, conservation and communication of cultural heritage, the transformation of social and economic patterns from prehistory to historical periods. Indeed, the workshop aims to present multidisciplinary papers given
by invited authors coming from the US but also by international scholars, expert in remote sensing, archaeology, anthropology, history, and social sciences. Networking and education at global scale of remote sensing in archaeology will also be a main topic of the conference.


October 2004 - 1st International Conference on Remote Sensing Archaeology was organized by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and hosted by the Joint Laboratory of Remote Sensing Archaeology (JLRSA). In that context an international team of experts was created in order to promote multidisciplinary activities of remote sensing archaeology in the entire world.

December 2006 - 2nd conference has been organized in Rome at the National Research Council with particular attention to the study and the conservation of archaeological and ancient landscapes through integrated technologies and virtual reality. In association with the general conference, a Remote Sensing International School for archaeologists, site managers and environmental experts was organized in Tuscany, with the collaboration of
international keynote scholars (Campana S., Forte M 2006, From Space To Place, Proceeding of the IInd International Conference Remote Sensing Archaeology, Rome (December 4-7 2006), Archaeopress BAR INTERNATIONAL
SERIES, Oxford, pp.579)

August 2009 - 3rd conference moved to India at the Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli with an emphasis on remote sensing and digital technologies in documenting, analyzing and interpreting archaeological and anthropological contexts (Campana S., Forte M., Liuzza C., 2010, Space, Time, Place, Proceeding of the IIIrd International Conference Remote Sensing Archaeology, Tirruchirapalli, India (August 17-22, 8, 2009), Archaeopress

October 2012 - 4th International Conference on Remote Sensing Archaeology (ICRAS4) is organized by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) UNESCO, and co‐hosted by the International Centre on Space Technologies for Natural and Cultural Heritage (HIST). The conference has been held in Beijing.
