On December 6 through 8th, a group of international experts of micro particle analysis will convene in Leipzig to share their knowledge with others in the field. We will have speakers covering starch grains, phytoliths, diatoms, pollen, fibers, insect remains, coccoliths, microcharcoal, and other remains that are commonly found in archaeological samples. After a series of short lectures discussing the formation, identification and use of these microremains, there will be hands-on microscope and laboratory based sessions, as well as poster presentations of recent applications of these methods.
