Three years after the first AWRANA Conference in Leiden, Connecting people and technologies, the next AWRANA conference will be held in Nice (France), from 29th may – 1st June 2018. This encounter will be the 13th major international meeting of use‐wear analysts (since the first CLUW in Vancouver in 1979).


The central focus of the conference will be Beyond use-wear traces: on tools and people. Many studies on technological aspects of material culture deal with specific material categories (e.g. flint, ceramics, bone), often in separate or isolated ways, and this division does no really reflect the integrate nature of technical systems in which different material categories are in dynamic interaction. Hence, exploring the interactions between different chanes opratoires is crucial for a more global concept of the toolkit with all its components and it is a precondition to paleoethnographic reconstructions of technical systems and economies.
