This prestigious event will take place from 9 to 11 April 2024 in the historic city of Vladimir. The conference will be hosted by the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum-Reserve.

The conference will address a range of topics including but not limited to:

- Offering new interpretations of previously excavated sites;
- Discussing diverse methodologies used in the archaeological study and documentation of architectural artefacts;
- Providing insights into the display and musealisation of researched objects;
- Suggesting theoretical generalisations derived from materials obtained through architectural and archaeological research;
- Exploring interdisciplinary aspects related to architectural archaeology, involving philology, art history, materials science, and other relevant disciplines;

Contributions presented during the conference will be considered for publication in the annual proceedings of "Architectural Archaeology."
