DECARS proposed to organise the ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE AERIAL ARCHAEOLOGY RESEARCH GROUP (AARG) IN 2013 at the headquarters of the Dutch Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) in Amersfoort.

DECARS is a network and expertise centre that aims at unifying, spreading and expanding knowledge and exchanging experience regarding archaeological remote sensing. DECARS wants to promote this method among Dutch archaeological researchers and students by hosing activities and events where specialists and other interested parties can meet. In this respect, in 2009, DECARS organised the first archaeological remote sensing symposium in the Netherlands in which mostly Dutch and Belgian researchers interested in archaeological remote sensing took part.
