Registration of Workshop Participants

8:30 am

All participants of the IPPA Workshop are requested to be at the Chiang Mai National Museum before 8:30am to register for both the workshop and the conference.

This grant writing workshop is designed to provide useful tips to students and early career researchers on how to prepare a competitive application in archaeology for submission to a grant-giving organisation. The workshop will be divided into two sections. First, we will work with you in small groups and discuss your individual topics and how to develop your proposed research projects. In the second half of the workshop we will discuss how to best present key sections of your proposal such as the title, significance, methods and background, and expected outcomes.

We highly encourage participants to prepare a short description or a draft of their project proposal and bring printed copies to the workshop.

The workshop is designed for early career researchers and young scholars. In general, the workshop aims to prepare attendees to be familiar with the publishing process. The program is divided into two parts: editorial works and publishing process, and peer review process. The first part will be an introduction and attendees will be divided into small groups. Abstracts will be selected by the editors in advance as examples to discuss on how papers should be developed. For the second part, editors will give an overview of the peer review process, followed by responses from the reviewers, from the perspectives of authors and reviewers, respectively. It should be noted that due to time constraints, the workshop will not be a writing clinic and selected abstracts would be addressed. Participants are required to submit an abstract to be able to attend this course.

This course is organised by Pratu Journal, SOAS University of London and SEAMEO SPAFA.

Southeast Asian Archaeology Online Bibliography Course
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The course focuses on using the online bibliography tool "Archaeobib" for researching references and compiling bibliographies for grants and publications. This bibliography was designed specifically for archaeologists working in Southeast Asia and it currently has more than 17,000 references in its database. Participants will learn how to do both basic and advanced searches both as guests and as registered users, to select and maintain reference lists for multiple projects, and to output references in different styles for publications.  Users can also add notes on references for their personal records. By the end of the short course, participants will create sample bibliographies and output them with more than one style.

This course will be conducted by Dr. Joyce White, Executive Director of the Institute for Southeast Asian Archaeology (ISEAA). All participants are required to bring their own laptops or other suitable electronic devices to be able to use the online program.
