The Society organises each year a programme of events including a one-day international colloquium on Recent Archaeological Fieldwork in Sudan. Among the speakers at least one eminent archaeologist from abroad is invited and slide illustrated papers are delivered on work undertaken in Sudan over the previous winter along with others of a more general nature.
Each autumn, immediately after the Society's Annual General Meeting, an eminent scholar is invited to deliver the Kirwan Memorial Lecture, inaugurated in 2000 in honour of the First President of the Society, Sir Laurence Kirwan (1907-1999), whose interest and involvement in Sudanese archaeology spanned over 60 years. Speakers to date have included Prof. William Y. Adams (Lexington), Prof. Charles Bonnet (Geneva), Prof. Fred Wendorf (Dallas), Prof. Dietrich Wildung (Berlin), Dr Salah Mohammed Ahmed (National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums, Khartoum, Dr Krzysztof Pluskota (Lund), Prof. Stuart T. Smith (Santa Barbara), Dr Claude Rilly (CNRS), Dr Vincent Rondot (SFDAS), Dr Mahmoud et-Tayeb (Warsaw), Dr Pamela Rose (Austrian Archaeological Institute, Cairo) and Dr Abdelrahman Ali (NCAM, Khartoum).
