The 3rd International Congress on Archaeological Sciences in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East (ICAS-EMME 3) took place at CyI’s premises between 14-18 March 2022, and was co-organised by the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Centre (STARC), the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute (CAARI) and the Archaeological Research Unit (ARU) of the University of Cyprus, and was supported by the Department of Antiquities and the Leventis Foundation.

The Congress brought together more than 120 members of the international scientific community of archaeologists, archaeological and heritage scientists, and researchers applying natural, material and computational science methods to archaeology and cultural heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. Diverse sessions highlighted recent advances in the archaeological and heritage science in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East, and provided an international academic forum for dissemination of results of current research in these fields in the region.
