ASCS 32 (2011)

ASCS 32, held at the University of Auckland, was a great success. There were about 160+ who attended and there were 140+ papers. It was a happy and academically successful occasion. The organisation, thanks to the efforts of the Convenors, Anne Mackay and Jeremy Armstrong, ran very smoothly; they were ably assisted by an enthusiastic, jolly and helpful band of local students. The facilities of the Owen G. Glenn Building were excellent, and there were tasty morning teas and lunches. The keynote speaker, Professor Christopher Smith, the current Director of the British School at Rome, accompanied by his wife, Susan, were a delight to have around during the conference. Christopher gave generously of his time, attending and contributing to many sessions, in addition to giving a well-attended public lecture on the development of the British School and a paper of his own.
