Conditions for admission
In order for a paper or poster to be accepted for inclusion in an IWGP conference, the major subject matter should relate to the study of the human exploitation of plant resources (wild and/or domesticated) or human interactions with the environment, by analysis and interpretation of plant macro remains (mainly seeds, fruits and other plant parts if connected with seeds, but not charcoal or pollen and spores etc.). Limited inclusion of anthracological or palynological data may be acceptable in circumstances where this complements the plant macrofossil data.
