ASMOSIA’s Mission Statement

ASMOSIA’s mission is to promote the exchange among its members in all fields related to the study of marble and other stones of art historical or archaeological interest. This exchange is accomplished through electronic communications, biannual meetings of the membership, and publication of the meeting proceedings.


Out of an abundance of caution, the ASMOSIA Executive Board and the organizers of the 13th congress of ASMOSIA have postponed the next international conference until the fall of 2022.  The Austrian Archaeological Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences will continue on as hosts.  The conference will now be held at the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna from September 19-23, 2022 with the traditional post-conference field trip on Saturday, September 24. Up-to-date information can be found on the conference webpage and the ASMOSIA webpage link.

The Call for Papers has been amended and the abstract deadline has been extended until February 28, 2022. Instructions for the online submittal of abstracts can be found at the link.  Attendees who have previously submitted an abstract will have the opportunity to modify their submission.
