ATTENTION: registration will close on 2nd June 2017
Dear Archaeologists, Entomologists, Archaeozoologist, Archaeoparasitologists and friends,
The Italian Association for Forensic Entomology (GIEF) is happy and honoured to host the 2nd International Conference in Funerary Archaeoentomology in the city of Treviso, on 7th June 2017.
Insects are the largest and most widely distributed group of animals in the world. Currently, insects contribute to 75% of all known animal species. They are represented on all terrestrial land masses, from high altitudes to the interiors of caves. Due to their relatively small size, the presence of wings in many species, and their feeding habits they have been successful colonisers of all trophic niches. Given this, it is not surprising that they have constantly been in close contact with humans and that their presence and activity can play an important role in human life and health but also after death.
Funerary Archaeoentomology, as defined by Jean-Bernard Huchet in 1996, is the use of information provided by the insect fauna associated with archaeological human remains in order to define the peri- and post- mortem events or the funerary practice. This discipline has a common theoretical and practical background with Forensic Entomology but it differs for the aims. Till now the discipline has been used in a wide spectrum of archaeological studies from the Egyptian and South American mummies to the remains of the WWI soldiers.
This conference will take place in a very significant town close to the WWI Italian front (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l18Egd73miY; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1xdXzQm7EQ) and as well for this reason part of the meeting will host the “Recovery of soldier remains Workshop”.
The conference will be followed by the 14th meeting of the European Association for Forensic Entomology (EAFE) http://giefitalia.org/events/14th-meeting-european-association-for-forensic-entomology/, 7th (evening) – 9th June 2017. On the 10th a visit of some places of the WWI frons will take place.
Treviso is a nice city in the Venetian region, located between the Dolomites and Venice. Treviso is known for being the original production area of Prosecco wine, and the birthplace of the popular Italian dessert tiramisu. The city is home to the headquarters of clothing retailer Benetton, Sisley, Stefanel, Diadora and Lotto Sport Italia, appliance maker De’ Longhi and bicycle maker Pinarello.

Treviso has two International Airports within easy reach and because of its size, all the most important locations in Treviso are in a walking distance.
see you soon in Treviso
all the best
