This year ASCE’s annual Conference will take place on Friday, 20 September 2024 in Budapest, Hungary. The exact location will be announced shortly.

Conference theme: Cemeteries as Cultural Spaces of European Remembrance

The upcoming Conference will focus on how cemeteries can become efficiently conveyed footprints of our joint European remembrance, tourism and education as well as park management and environmental sustainability due to continuous climate change. Remembrance and environment have always been topics many disciplines were interested in.

Therefore, Conference presentations may address (but are not limited to) the following main issues: 

  • Remembrance – how can our cemeteries become efficiently conveyed footprints of our joint European remembrance
    • e.g. significant funerals, commemoration, history
  • Tourism and education
    • e.g. cultural events, special history lesson, new technologies
  • Park management and environmental sustainability due to continuous climate change
    • e.g. heritage guardians vs. climate change


Both individual and panel submissions are welcome.

Anyone who would like to give a presentation at the Conference should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words summarising the intended paper, and a one-page CV using the form below. Applications for panel discussions should include the names of up to four participants.
