The Catania Organizing Team enthusiastically welcomes the members of the SEAC.

The 31st Annual Meeting of the European Association for Astronomy in Culture will take place in the city of Catania, at the foot of Europe’s most active volcano: Etna.

It is the first time that the SEAC annual conference is held in Sicily; this meeting represents a great opportunity to learn about a discipline that can make an important contribution to the cultural growth of one of the richest historical territories of the entire Mediterranean.

The SEAC2024 meeting in Catania will have among its main themes the discussion of the astronomical and statistical methodologies currently used to specify the degree of reliability of the chronological and cultural collocation of sites of archaeoastronomical interest.

We hope our efforts to construct an inspiring programme, crafted of stimulating themes for successful sessions and presentations, will match your expectations, and that the keynote lectures, special events and amazing locations will bring food for our archaeological thoughts. The sparkling social events will create new connections and contacts for your life and work.

We propose carefully selected excursions as immersions in archaeology and beauty and we are certain that the lively spirit of the city will make for an unforgettable experience, wandering the town and continuously finding bits of archaeology and history in the urban framework and in the countryside.

We are looking forward to meeting you in person in Catania, to experience a magnificent meeting in Sicily together.

Vi aspettiamo in Sicilia con immensa gioia,
Andrea e Sebastiano.
