Conference Proceedings

 

 

UMAC has published its annual conference proceedings since its creation in 2001.

Since 2008, most proceedings have been published in the dedicated journal UMACJ, presently under evaluation.

Since 2019, UMACJ has also been published in Chinese, thanks to an agreement made with Shanghai University Museum. Read UMACJ in Chinese here.
