The program ARABIA was initiated in June 2013 by Guillaume Gernez (University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne) and Sophie Méry (CNRS). After being a partner for the « Rencontres Sabéennes » in Paris (June 2013), it then took part of the LabEx DynamiTe, with the first workshop held in Nanterre in May 2014.

The main aim of this 5 years program is to create links between specialists and to build a group of researchers and PhD students in ancient Arabia, focusing on topics related to the concept of territoriality. Annual workshop will take place, and a final conference (then published) is previewed in 2018. This project also intended.
For this second workshop, in February 2016, the CEFAS and the National Council for Culture, Arts & Letters offer the opportunity to organize a meeting in Kuwait, with international researchers, a large part of them being directors of archaeological operations and actors of archaeology and heritage in the region, dealing with new data, new methods and recent works.
The diachronic theme will be focused on « territories, settlement patterns and interactions in Arabic Peninsula », including the questions of sedentism and nomadism, from Neolithic to the eve of the Islamic period.
