THE CONFERENCE THEME:

The 2nd International Ancient DNA Conference will be a gathering of
scientists working on ancient DNAs.  Following the 1st International
Conference held in Nottingham, England in 1990, many participants supported
the concept of holding a subsequent conference in a museum setting where the
importance of natural history collections as the source of ancient DNA might
be explored and debated. Researchers at the Smithsonian who are actively
engaged in ancient DNA inverstigations agreed to host this conference.


VENUE:

The Conference will be held in the Ripley Internation Center of the
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.


PROGRAM:

The three day conference will consist of morning symposia with featured
speakers and afternoons dedicated to contributed papers and sicussion and
poster sessions.  The morning symposia topics are listed below.  Evening
receptions at the National Museum of Natural History and at the National
Zoological Park are planned.

                Thursday October 7:    Systematics

                Friday October 8:      Humans and Domestication

                Saturday October 9:     Populations
