  • Welcome

    Dear members and participants,

    On behalf of the ENFSI, the 9th European Meeting on Forensic Archaeology (EMFA 2021) this year will be organised by the University of Geneva in partnership with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

    Dear Colleagues,

    After careful consideration and evaluation of all information related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University Center of Legal Medicine Lausanne - Geneva (CURML), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the EMFA board had made the difficult decision to postpone the meeting originally planned for August 20-21, 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland to August 26-27, 2021.

    And the good news are that the EMFA meeting in Geneva will take place in hybride mode and you will be able to attend in-person or at distance. Please check the preliminary programme. We are looking forward to the opportunity to meet you virtually and in the beautiful city of Geneva during the summer time in 2021.

    The abstract submission process will be open for 2021 and you can continue to send in your abstracts. Furthermore, we will keep all submitted abstracts. If you wish to update or present a new research topic, feel free to modify or submit a new abstract. Participants who have already paid the fee can maintain the registration as it will be valid for EMFA 2021. Please let us know if you wish a refund. 

    The new deadlines for abstract submission is 15th May 2021. For online participation the deadline for registration will be the 15th of August 2021. The conference website (https://www.xing-events.com/EMFA2020.html) will be kept open. New dates and all relevant information will be updated.

    In the meantime, we welcome your questions (info-emfa2020@unige.ch) and we thank you very much for your understanding and your support. We wish you and your loved ones good health throughout this difficult time. 

    We look forward to seeing all of you in Geneva in 2021!

    Kind regards,

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee
    Dr Negahnaz Moghaddam

    We hope you will stay safe and healthy!
