The 11th KAPI Conference will be held on December 8, 2018 (Saturday), at Bahay na Tisa, Malolos, Bulacan.

With the theme: "Peoples, Things, and Cultures: Papers on Integration in Philippine Archaeology", papers and posters that contribute to the conference abstract are welcome.

Abstract."The study of archaeology has always been open to various techniques, methods and interpretation. This method encourages researches to assess various avenues in tackling the past, while also addressing current issues in society and community. In this 11th KAPI Conference, we are inviting academics, cultural workers, and students to present papers on their perspectives regarding integration (whether in terms of interpretations, methods, practices, community approach, among others) in Philippine archaeology."
