Το θέμα του 8ου Πανελληνίου Συνεδρίου Φοιτητών Αρχαιολογίας είναι «Το άυλο μέσα από το υλικό: θρησκεία, μαγεία, ιδεολογία, πρακτικές». Απομακρυσμένοι από οποιαδήποτε θρησκευτική προκατάληψη, σκοπός του συνεδρίου είναι η ανταλλαγή ιδεών και η αλληλεπίδραση των φοιτητών και των ενδιαφερόντων τους. Όμως, ακόμη πιο σημαντική είναι η παροχή ώθησης σε νέους να παρουσιάσουν πτυχές της επιστήμης που όλοι καλούμαστε να υπηρετήσουμε, επικουρούμενη και από άλλα ερευνητικά πεδία. Οι φοιτητές μπορούν να αναπτύξουν εργασίες για οποιονδήποτε λαό, οποιαδήποτε χρονική περίοδο, οποιαδήποτε θρησκεία, οποιουδήποτε γεωγραφικού προσδιορισμού.
